28-30 May 2020
Harrogate Convention Centre  

Promoting the business of bulk haulage

Over 100 exhibitors and 150 trucks on display 

Tip-ex and Tank-ex has grown into a must-attend event for those involved in the tipper, bulk transport and tanker sectors – and this year proved to be no different. Nine truck manufacturers alongside a multitude of bodywork, parts and equipment specialists displayed the very latest technology the sector has to offer. There was also a seminar programme across all three days focusing on safety, compliance and technical innovations. We also welcomed back Drain-ex the event dedicated to vehicles, and vehicle solutions and accessories for the drainage, water and wastewater industries. The Tip-ex and Tank-ex Awards also took place in the Royal Hall and recognised and rewarded excellence in the sector. View the winners here.

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.
