The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has announced that its 2023 Asia Conference & Showcase will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, on 2-3 August. Last year it was held in Singapore, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
The two-day event will consist of a full-day conference followed by a half-day site visit to a rental company in Thailand, and there will also be an equipment showcase and networking activities. At last year’s Asia Conference, emerging markets in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand were among the hot topics under discussion, prompting organisers to decide to host the event in Thailand for the first time.
“As is the case every year, the event will offer attendees a fresh insight into the mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) industry across the wider Asia region. We hope attendees will be able to join us in-person to meet and network with like-minded safety professionals,” said Raymond Wat, IPAF’s South East Asia regional general manager.
“We are very excited to be hosting this popular event in Thailand for the first time, and hope that travel restrictions that we know have hampered attendance for some over the past few years will have eased or been removed completely; allowing us to maximise attendance by delegates from across the whole of Asia to hear about the latest safety and industry developments in the powered access field.
“As with every IPAF conference event, our speakers will be sharing their knowledge and expertise in formal presentations and will also be participating in open discussion via an interactive question & answer session with the audience. Please save the date so you don’t miss out on this highly anticipated event – we look forward to seeing you there in August!”
