IPAAT (formally EPDC) is in the 8th year running and we have already trebled in size not only do we have 5 Pole categories we have 4 Aerial Hoop and 2 Aerial Silks too.


There will be our Champions Pole category which sees the best in the business competing against each other. Previous winners include Lisette Krol 2014, Sam King 2015, Heidi Hildersley 2016, Dan Rosen in 2018 & Lisa Hammond in 2019.

Throughout heats and finals there will be 220+ contestants. At the Live Final there will be 6 finalists in each of the 5 pole categories, and in the 4 hoop categories, and the Intermediate and Advanced Silks winners will be invited to perform their winning routine, as silks is being held as an online-only competition.  

This is all at the Albert Hall, Nottingham which seats 750 people.  We will have guest performances throughout the night.

Our Facebook page has over 2300 people following which is targeted to the industry and is growing every day.  

As potentially being one of our sponsors we will advertise your business to all of these people, please have a look at our sponsorship packages attached.  We have tried to keep them as affordable as possible, as we are keen for all Pole-related companies, big or small, to come and join us this year.


Our Sponsorship Package costs £100 plus a prize for each winner (12 winners). If you are a company that cannot provide prizes, alternate arrangements can be made; or if you are a company that have more expensive products we can arrange for less prizes to be given the prizes should calculate to a minimum of £15 per winner. Prizes are just for the finals. If you have anything for 2nd, 3rd and the raffle that will be great.
