Harrogate International Centre (HIC) is to stage a tanker truck industry show.
The organiser of Tank-ex14 has announced it will be running the new event alongside the existing annual Tip-ex show, from May next year.
CommercialMotor.com, the show’s owner, says Tank-ex14 has already signed up 14 tanker companies and parts manufacturers including MAN, Crossland and Valley Tankers.
Sister show Tip-ex has established itself as one of HIC’s most high-profile events with manufacturers showcasing their latest models.
Although running alongside Tip-ex on 29-30 May, the new show will be a separate exhibition.
“The organisers of Tip-ex have been coming to HIC for decades so to expand to a second major industry event like Tank-ex14 shows just how confident they are in our ability to deliver something this size,” said HIC director Simon Kent.
“Most people in Harrogate will be familiar with Tip-ex because we expand the show right out of our halls and onto nearby Crescent Gardens – it’s a real visual spectacle.”
Another long-term resident at HIC, The Golf Show, recently signed a deal to stay at the Yorkshire venue until 2020.
