IAPAs more popular than ever
By Maria Hadlow22 February 2011
With the judging completed, the countdown to the IAPAs (International Awards for Powered Access) has begun and already over 75% of the places at the awards dinner have been sold.
In just three years the IAPAs have marked themselves out as an essential part of the access industry's calendar and clearly, this year, many of you are determined not to be disappointed and have signed up early.
Held on 14 April 2011 at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam, the awards dinner and presentation is the highlight of a two day event of which includes an informal networking event, IPAF meetings, the IPAF AGM and the IPAF Summit.
Past attendees in Dublin, Ireland; and London, UK have had the opportunity to meet their peers and discus matters that affect our industry both formally and informally. Access professionals from all over the world travel to the event and the past winners list is truly international.
Both Access International and IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) who jointly organise the awards are delighted at the way the industry has embraced the opportunity to demonstrate the creative, innovative and effective way the industry operates.
Access International's editor, Maria Hadlow said, "We had over 100 entrants for the IAPAs, of a very high calibre. It is very exciting to be able to acknowledge those companies that are championing excellence in our industry despite the difficult economic conditions that have affected almost everyone."
IPAF's chief executive officer said, "Our industry relies on professionalism and innovative design to stay safe and effective - it is right that we should recognise the innovators, leaders and pioneers that make that possible."
