The International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs)

The IAPAs are the most prestigious and respected awards in our industry. An independent judging panel of access industry leaders will vote to determine the winners.


Celebrate best practice and excellence in the access industry and at the same time spend an enjoyable evening with customers, industry contacts and colleagues. It’s a friendly industry, and the IAPAs dinner is its best social event, attracting audiences of around 450 each year.


There are 13 award categories, ranging from new products and innovations to safety and training - you can be certain to find one or more to suit you or your company.


ENTRY DEADLINE: Friday 30 November 2018
