A “save the date” notice has been issued by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) that its annual Asia Conference & Showcase will be held in 2023 in Bangkok, Thailand, on August 3-4. This year will see the second in-person Asia Conference since the pandemic, following a successful return in Singapore last July.  

The two-day event will consist of a full-day conference followed by a half-day site visit to a rental company in Thailand, and there will also be an equipment showcase and networking activities. At last year’s Asia Conference, emerging markets in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand were among the hot topics under discussion, prompting organisers to decide to host the event in Thailand for the first time.   

Raymond Wat, IPAF’s South-East Asia Regional General Manager, says: “As is the case every year, the event will offer attendees a fresh insight into the Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) industry across the wider Asia region. We hope attendees will be able to join us in-person to meet and network with like-minded safety professionals.  

“We are very excited to be hosting this popular event in Thailand for the first time, and hope that travel restrictions that we know have hampered attendance for some over the past few years will have eased or been removed completely; allowing us to maximise attendance by delegates from across the whole of Asia to hear about the latest safety and industry developments in the powered access field.  

“As with every IPAF conference event, our speakers will be sharing their knowledge and expertise in formal presentations and will also be participating in open discussion via an interactive question & answer session with the audience. Please save the date so you don’t miss out on this highly anticipated event – we look forward to seeing you there in August!”
