In a joint statement, the IAPA organisers Access International and IPAF said, “It is great to see the industry once again embracing the IAPA awards. Thank you to all those who have taken the time to enter.

“The 2022 edition of the awards is set to be the first time it has been held live since 2019, following a long period of upheavals as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. It promises to be a fantastic celebration of safety and excellence across the international industry. We look forward to seeing you on 10 March.”

IPAF Summit

The IAPAs take place on the same day as the IPAF Summit, and are organised by Access International and IPAF.

IAPAs 2019

This year’s summit has a special focus on safety and how it is being developed. Speaking about the IPAF Summit, Peter Douglas, CEO & MD of IPAF, said, “Last year the IPAF Summit was held as a digital event; it was a successful format, but it is great to get back to in-person events and for the Summit & IAPAs to be back in the UK for the first time in five years.

“Along with our event partners KHL, we’ve worked hard to put together what we feel is a very strong line-up of speakers, and we think this event – along with the evening dinner to announce and toast the IAPAs winners – will be a memorable occasion. We really hope you are able to make it and urge you to book now if you want to join us in London in March.”

Murray Pollok, events director at KHL, added, “The confirmed line-up of IPAF Summit speakers is fascinating; it will be good to see everyone back in the room together for what promise to be quality presentations around the theme of the evolution of safety.

“In addition, it was a strong set of submissions to the IAPAs categories, with a record number of entries received this year, so we hope that you’re able to join us to enjoy the IPAF Summit and to celebrate all the IAPAs winners, as well as for some long-overdue international networking!”
