IPAF webinar reviews challenging year and looks ahead to 2021

IPAF 2020 review and what does 2021 hold

The next free webinar on 10 December at 12pm GMT from the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) will offer a review of 2020, while outlining exciting initiatives for the year ahead.

There is a limit of 1,000 people joining live via Zoom, so the webinar will be recorded and made available after the event on YouTube and via www.ipaf.org/webinars along with all of IPAF’s past webinars.

Giles Councell, IPAF’s Director of Operations, and Romina Vanzi, IPAF Head of International Development, will host the webinar, which will be in English and simultaneously translated into Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Chinese.

Peter Douglas, IPAF CEO & MD, comments: “It’s fair to say 2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone around the world, dealing with a pandemic, political and economic uncertainty; IPAF’s team worked hard to support our industry throughout.

“In 2020, IPAF issued guidance about dealing with risk from the virus, offered technical and regulatory advice, assisted members with discounted fees and business support, and published our Global Powered Access Rental Market reports for 2020 and beyond.

“This webinar will summarise all that’s happened in our industry this year and look at what the future holds, including announcements about some game-changing initiatives IPAF plans to launch. We must also thank our webinar sponsors Hinowa, MCS, Green Power Design, JESH Lift and Sunward Equipment Group. We do hope you’ll join us.”
