Harrogate Convention Centre
1-3 June 2017

For anyone involved in the tipping, bulk haulage, tanker and bulk liquid transport industries, Tip-ex and Tank-ex are the only shows dedicated to these markets. With over 100 leading manufacturers and suppliers on show, many of whom only exhibit at Tip-ex and Tank-ex, these have become the must-attend events for operators in the dry bulk and liquid tanker sectors.

This three-day event in the heart of Harrogate provides a unique opportunity to see all the latest vehicles, products and services while networking with everyone who is anyone in bulk transport. The fact that all the most important vehicle manufacturers active in the tipper and tanker markets exhibited at Tip-ex and Tank-ex 2016 confirms the importance of the show, which packs out four halls of the Harrogate International Centre and spills over on to the surrounding area, creating a real buzz in the centre of the town.

In the four years Road Transport Media has owned the event, visitor numbers have more than doubled to over 3,500 in 2016. The Gala Dinner now sees seven awards including Tipper Haulier and Tanker Operator of the Year, handed out in front of an audience of 500 guests in the grandeur of the Majestic Hotel.

Tip-ex and Tank-ex 2017 is shaping up to be even bigger and better than previous events. Registration is free so why not register your interest in attending today.
