IPAF nominated for trio of European trade association awards

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has been shortlisted as a finalist in three categories of the European Association Awards 2018, being nominated in the Best Provision of Industry Information and Intelligence, Best Association Conference (under 225 delegates) and Best Association Partnership or Collaboration categories. 

The nominations are for IPAF’s Global Powered Access Market Rental Market
Report 2017, the Europlatform 2017 conference hosted in conjunction with Access International magazine in Warsaw, Poland, and collaborating with Ducker Worldwide
in compiling and producing the annual Powered Access Rental Market reports. 

Tim Whiteman, CEO of IPAF, says: “IPAF has built a reputation for delivering reliable business intelligence and professional events that offer practical guidance and advice to the powered access industry. I’m delighted to see the hard work of all those involved recognised in these nominations; we look forward to seeing many more delegates at our next major event – the IPAF Summit and IAPAs in Miami, US, on 8 March.”

Jo Power, Head of Membership & Communications at IPAF, adds: “IPAF relies on first-class collaboration with the likes of Ducker Worldwide and Access International, so it’s great for those partnerships to be recognised as well. We hope to be celebrating together when the winners are announced in February.”

The European Association Awards 2018 winners will be announced at a celebration lunch at Steigenberger Wiltcher’s hotel in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday 23 February.
