Harrogate tipped for success

Tip-Ex, the annual tipper exhibition, has signed a three-year deal with Harrogate International Centre (HIC). The event will attract an additional 10,000 visitors to the region each year.

seal the deal in Harrogate. 


Harrogate has a long association with the road haulage industry, having staged the old tipper truck convention (TIPCON) for many years prior to its move to Manchester in early 2000. The inaugural Tip-Ex event launched in Harrogate in May this year used over 5,000 square metres of exhibition space across three exhibition halls, as well as external exhibition space in the adjacent Majestic Hotel grounds. The event proved such a success that the tipper industry has firmly voted to stay and build the event in the town over the coming years, increasing the space in 2008 to 7,000 square metres across four exhibition halls.

“We are very pleased to host one of the key exhibitions in the transport calendar," said Stuart Quin, director of HIC. "Harrogate welcomes the move by the industry and to the opportunity of renewing old acquaintances with exhibitors and visitors alike. We look forward to working in partnership with this unique and spectacular exhibition.”
Meanwhile, Dave Tallent, of Tip-Ex organisers G&T Events, said: “Harrogate provides the ideal location for our visitors to combine business with pleasure. Part of our decision to commit to Harrogate is the HIC’s exciting plans to develop the exhibition halls into a world class facility, and we look forward to working closely with them as we both develop and expand in the future."
