KNOWLEDGE ZONE 2021

‘Hall C’ at Tip-Ex Tank-Ex will this year be hosting a much-expanded Knowledge Zone, trialled for the first time in 2019. A three-day programme of engaging stage talks will cover topics ranging from alternative fuels and tipper/tanker innovation, through to driver training and safety.
