Tip-Ex Tank-Ex 2021 will move to September in order to comply with recently announced government guidelines. The show will now run from 30 September to 2 October 2021. In addition to the usual indoor and outdoor exhibition stands, the event will include three days of industry seminars. A Transport Managers Conference will be held on Thursday 30 September, and the first Transport News Northern Rewards Breakfast will take place on Friday 1 October. Another new addition for 2021 is a drivers’ day, which is planned for Saturday 2 October.

It’s a fantastic event. I went there on the first day to talk business. On the second day I went with all the family. On the third day we took all the drivers. Every day was brilliant and we loved it.

Together, Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex form the UK's only national event for the tipper, tanker and bulk haulage industries. The 2019 show saw more than 150 trucks go on display in and around the Harrogate Convention Centre. All of the major truck manufacturers exhibited, along with the bodybuilders, the tanker suppliers, the tipper bodybuilders, the tipping gear manufacturers and many more. Read the Commercial Motor show review or view the show highlights video.


The Tip-Ex and Tank-Ex show is unquestionably the main event for bulk haulage, tipping and bulk liquid transportation. Over 3,000 business visitors attended the 2019 show.

In a year of cancellations, one event which did go ahead (albeit a little later than usual) was the Commercial Motor tipper test! Once again, we pitted six of the hottest tippers the market has to offer, against each other in a quarry.
