After a two-year hiatus during the pandemic, IPAF’s Innovate workshop is back on the agenda and scheduled for September 28 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel in Chicago, IL, a day in advance of the ALH Conference at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel Rosemont.  

This popular event brings together stakeholders from across the powered access industry to participate in collaborative groups to tackle key challenges through group workshops, with presentations given and all assembled voting for what they think are the best ideas. Those solutions are then taken forward by the IPAF North America Regional Council in order to make the industry safer and more efficient. 

Tony Groat, IPAF’s North America Regional Manager, says: “As in previous years, the unusual event format presents a great opportunity for personal development, sharing thoughts and ideas through collaborative working, and networking with others in the process to develop solutions to known industry issues that may otherwise never be heard.”  

“This time around workshop is an eight-hour event over a single day, with assembled groups brainstorming together in the morning and then a presentation from each work group in the afternoon. A special networking event will be held in the evening for all workshop attendees, and incoming attendees of the ALH Conference will be invited to join as well.” 

● Those registering for the Innovate Workshop will receive a 50% discount off registration for the ALH Conference. For more information and to register for both the workshop and evening networking events, visit www.ipaf.org/innovate without delay.
