The IAPAs are the only truly global awards for the powered access sector and celebrate best practice and excellence across the industry.

 

The 2023 event will provide a unique setting in which to spend an enjoyable evening with customers, industry contacts and colleagues.

 

The IAPAs dinner and awards ceremony, organised by IPAF and KHL Group’s Access International, is widely considered as the industry’s best social event, attracting audiences of around 450 each year.

 

With 13 all-encompassing awards categories available to enter, companies across the access industry are invited to submit their nominations highlighting their latest products or initiatives which demonstrate a leap forward in environmental engagement. The award categories cover equipment, engineering and digital innovations, along with safety and IPAF training. In addition, budding photographers are invited to enter the Photo of the Year category, and an individual will be recognised for their contributions to the industry in the Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

The evening of the IAPA awards will start with the traditional Networking Drinks Reception, followed by a three-course dinner with wine. Following the dinner, the awards presentation will begin, at which the trophies will be presented to the deserved winners.

 

Those wishing to enter the awards will be able to do so from mid-September, when the entry forms will be available on the website. Please look out for announcements at that time.

 

This year, the deadline for the 2023 awards will be 15 December 2022. NOW EXTEND TO TUESDAY 3 JANUARY, 2023
