Shortlist Revealed for International Awards for Powered Access 2017

The shortlist for this year’s International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) has been revealed, following the judges’ meeting on 7 February in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

According to a press release issued by International Power Access Federation (IPAF) on 15 February, the IAPAs take place on the same day as the IPAF Summit and regularly attract up to 500 attendees from the global powered access industry.

IPAF is a not-for-profit members’ organisation that promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide. Members include manufacturers, rental companies, contractors and users.

This year’s awards ceremony is hosted in the UK and winners will be announced at the dinner and awards gala dinner on 4 April 2017 at the Hilton London Wembley hotel.

Jointly organised by Access International and IPAF, the IAPAs celebrate global best practice and excellence in the powered access industry. More than 100 entries across 13 award categories were received for this year’s edition of the prestigious awards.

The independent and impartial judges make their decisions based on the merit of each entry and are excluded from entering their company for any awards. The judges thank all those who took part and would like to encourage everyone in the industry to consider entering again for the awards in 2018.
