More than 450 industry professionals gathered on April 4 in London to honor the winners of the International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs). Jointly organised by Access International and IPAF, the IAPAs celebrate best practice and excellence in the powered access industry.

Not only was it a record attendance but the quality of the entries was very high, with more than 100 across the 12 categories at this year’s event. AI and IPAF would like to congratulate the outstanding winners but also encourage all those who took part and didn’t take home a trophy to apply again next year.

The winners of the IAPAs 2017 are judges’ below, with judges comments on www.khl.com.
