Frank Nerenhausen, president of JLG, will be the keynote speaker at the IPAF Summit, the International Powered Access Federation said, and he will explore emerging technologies and their potential application in the access industry under the title “Gimmicks or the Next Reality”. The IPAF Summit will be held on March 26, 2015 in Washington, D.C., the same day as the International Awards for Powered Access.
The theme of the 2015 Summit is “New Technologies and New Markets.” The panel of speakers will focus on how new technologies will change the face of the access industry in the next five to 10 years and look at how existing technologies are still battling to open up new markets around the world. The list of speakers is being finalized. Planned topics include a report from Bulgaria on the battle to reclaim stolen MEWPs, a presentation from Turkey on the challenges of opening new markets to new technologies, and an update from IPAF on the latest developments in eLearning.
The full program will be announced shortly. The conference will be held in English, with simultaneous translation into Spanish. Attendance at the IPAF Summit conference is free.
