Dear IAPA - Friends,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal IAPA companions who have supported us over the last few years, either as exhibitors, speakers or visitors to our annual trade fair.
You have witnessed the transformation of the last years: from IAPA Meeting to Adventure Sports Convention, from small to a bit bigger, from adventure park to ropes course industry.
The time seems ripe to take the next step: We are therefore very happy to be part of the VERTICAL PRO family from 2021 and follow the idea to benefit from the network and know-how as well as the synergy effects of the different associations and trade fairs around tree care, industrial climbing, climbing halls - and now also the ropes courses.


Dear ASC Exhibitors of the last years,

we would absolutely like to have you in Friedrichshafen at the IAPA AREA!
We expect visitors from the climbing forest, ropes course and adventure sports sectors, providers of adventure education events and tourist attractions, people interested in equipment, technology, construction and maintenance, as well as software solutions and marketing channels.
Exhibitor registrations will take place directly through the VERTICAL PRO exhibition team, but we will be happy to guide you through the registration process. Contact Tine at the IAPA office by phone or send us an email at [email protected]


Dear IAPA Innovation Award interested parties,

the IAPA Innovation Award will of course also be presented in Friedrichshafen. Again with a pitch and with poster presentations - only this time in front of a much larger audience.
More information will follow as soon as our concept for this year is finalized.


Dear visitors of the previous ASC,

bringing together exhibitors from the ropes course, climbing halls, tree care and industrial climbing sectors at VERTICAL PRO offers a unique opportunity to analyze existing interfaces, benefit from each other and exploit synergies.
You can expect interesting lectures and numerous practical workshops. Take the opportunity to talk to experts about hot topics in the industry.
