IPAF Elevation UK is a special event to mark the 40th anniversary of the International Powered Access Federation’s foundation at The Belfry Hotel & Resort in the West Midlands, on 16 & 17 November 2023.

The event will be the biggest yet, with places for up to 250 delegates to join, and will celebrate 40 years of IPAF in the powered access industry. A networking lunch, afternoon conference, drinks reception and gala dinner with entertainment are included and the following day, delegates can choose to participate in golf and spa activities. IPAF’s UK Country Council will also meet during the first morning of the event.

The conference theme will be “It’s all about the people” – focusing on recruitment, behaviour, working with the next generation and a look forward to what IPAF will be doing in the future. The full line-up will be announced in due course.

In the evening, guests will enjoy a three-course dinner followed by entertainment, details of which will be announced in the next few months. Previously this event has featured The Office impressionists Tim Oliver (David Brent) and Brett Sirrell (Gareth Keenan), TV & radio comedian Rob Deering, and Ted Robbins, actor and stand-up.

Peter Douglas, CEO and Managing Director of IPAF, comments: “We would be delighted if you can join us at the Belfry for IPAF Elevation UK 2023. Bookings are now open, and places are filling up fast with around 80 per cent of tickets sold so far.

“For those who’ve already booked, we’d love to hear your key memories from across the past four decades. Simply post on social media using the hashtag #IPAF40. IPAF will share these and feature some selected favourites at the event in November.

“We launched our 40th anniversary celebrations with the premiere of a short film at the IPAF Summit in Berlin, Germany, and continue to showcase favourite memories at all this year’s events. I hope to see you in person to raise a toast to the past 40 years – and the next 40 – at the Belfry in November.”
