IPAF, KHL Postpone 2020 Summit and IAPAs Event Until 2021

IPAF and KHL have moved the IPAF Summit & IAPAs 2020 event from Oct. 8, 2020, to March 18, 2021. It will be held at the originally planned venue: the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, London, U.K.

Event organizers, the International Powered Access Federation and KHL, are postponing the events until 2021 so attendees can plan with greater certainty and to minimize disruptions that might prevent people from traveling.

Peter Douglas, CEO and managing director of IPAF, said: “While we hope that by October coronavirus is under control, it’s fair to assume there may still be restrictions on large gatherings and international travel. It therefore makes sense to postpone until 2021, when hopefully there will be more clarity about how to manage the risk from this virus.”

Douglas added that economies and companies around the world are starting to open up again, but will not immediately return to business as usual. “To ensure everyone hoping to attend the IPAF Summit & IAPAs can plan with maximum certainty, we’ve made this decision and hope the event will be a great success in 2021. We trust that attendees understand why IPAF and our event partners KHL have decided to postpone until next year,” he said.

“Anyone who booked to join us will have their reservations honored on the alternative date in 2021; a full refund will be offered to anyone who is unable to attend the rescheduled event or who wishes to cancel. Anyone who has booked accommodation is advised to contact the Millennium Gloucester Hotel directly to reconfirm,” said Douglas.

Douglas said that the inevitable changes to the program and access site visits will be communicated once confirmed.
