IPAF nominated for European trade association awards

Europlatform is nominated for Best Association Conference at the European Association Awards 2019

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has been shortlisted as a finalist for two European Association Awards 2019, being nominated in the Best Provision of Industry Information and Intelligence and Best Association Conference categories. 

The nominations are for IPAF’s Global Powered Access Market Rental Market Report 2018 and Europlatform 2018, hosted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, last October.

Tim Whiteman, CEO of IPAF, says: “IPAF continues to build on its reputation for delivering quality business intelligence and highly engaging events that offer valuable insight to powered access industry professionals. It’s great that the hard work of all those involved has been recognized with these nominations.”

Jo Power, Head of Membership & Communications at IPAF, adds: “We are thankful for excellent collaborations with our partners Ducker Worldwide, which compiles the IPAF rental market reports, and Access International, IPAF’s official magazine and media partner for the Europlatform conference.

“We hope that, like last year, when IPAF’s Global Powered Access Rental Market Report won Bronze in the Best Provision of Industry Information and Intelligence category, we will be celebrating again when the 2019 winners are announced.”

The European Association Awards 2019 winners will be announced at a lunchtime ceremony at the Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday 28 March.
