Registration opens for IPAF Summit & IAPAs 2022 in London

IAPA Summit 2022 Book Now

Registration is now open for next year’s Summit of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), which will be hosted along with the International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, Kensington, London, on 10 March 2022. There will be a networking event at Illuminate at the Science Museum on the evening prior to the Summit & IAPAs, and a site visit to be confirmed shortly.

The 2021 Summit and IAPAs was held as a digital event owing to the Covid pandemic, and so 2022 sees a return to both in-person events and to the UK for the first time since the Summit & IAPAs in Wembley, London, in 2017.

There are 13 IAPA categories, including a new category for 2022 – the Sustainability Award, open to companies from across the industry that can demonstrate a leap forward in environmental engagement. All the award categories are now open to enter, and deadline for entries is 1 December 2021.

Peter Douglas, CEO of IPAF, says: “In 2020, the event was postponed and this year we switched to a digital format owing to the pandemic. We are overdue a physical get-together to enjoy high-quality presentations, face-to-face networking and to celebrate the IAPAs winners. We hope people are looking forward to this as much as we are.”

Murray Pollok, Editorial & Events Director for event partner KHL Group, comments: “We hope this will mark a memorable return to in-person events. Please see to book your place and take advantage of the special earlybird discount.”

The overall theme of the IPAF Summit, powered access site visit, IAPAs categories, judging panel, entry forms and deadlines will be announced shortly. Event and awards sponsorship opportunities are available now at preferential rates for IPAF Members, all interested parties are kindly invited to email for details.

● Please visit for more details and announcements, including awards categories and entry forms, and to register as a delegate at the earlybird rate.
