Bringing innovative solutions to the industry 

To offer the industry as much valuable information as possible, ALH has partnered with the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) to provide two, back-to-back days of education, networking and presentations geared specifically toward the access and rental industries.

Set for September 28 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel, IPAF’s Innovate event aims to develop potential solutions to improve the safe and effective use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs.) At the event, industry stakeholders work together in small groups to create achievable solutions which could positively impact the issue at hand. Following the day’s workshop, IPAF will host a networking reception from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Hyatt’s Ventenas Penthouse.

The event is limited to a total of 100 attendees, and registration costs $149. For more information, visit
