Entries are open until 9 April if you would like to celebrate your team and potentially take home a trophy at the black-tie event, which promises to include humbling stories of achievement from across our sector as well as the most stylish networking opportunities of the year! Please visit www.mtawards.co.uk for more information. Exhibition season returns in late September, with Freight In The City at London’s Alexandra Palace on Tuesday 28 September – a must-attend for anyone involved in urban logistics.

Attracting almost 1,000 visitors in 2019, the expo is a unique opportunity to meet and network with industry experts and decision makers all dedicated to making urban deliveries safer and more sustainable. More information can be found at www.freightinthecity.com.  That is followed later the same week with our popular Tip-ex Tank-ex show in Harrogate, from Thursday 30 September until Saturday 2 October.

Aimed at tipper, tanker and bulk haulage professionals, the three-day event attracts 3,000 visitors to a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibition stands and will this year also include industry seminars, a Transport Manager’s Conference (30 Sept) and the inaugural and hotly-anticipated Transport News Northern Rewards on Friday 1 October, dedicated to celebrating best practice across the north of England. Saturday 2 October will be our very first drivers’ day, dedicated to tipper and tanker drivers and their families. For more information please visit www.tip-ex.co.uk

Then on Friday 3 December, our focus heads even further north for the distinguished Transport News Scottish Rewards at Glasgow’s Crown Plaza Hotel. The 27th annual champagne breakfast event will honour individuals and companies working in Scotland. Entries are open until 7 September and can be made at www.transportnews.co.uk.

And finally, we’ll wrap up awards season in style with the Commercial Motor Awards Thursday 9 December at The Vox, Birmingham.

A guaranteed great night out, the awards celebrate the very best of those working in new and used commercial vehicles.

Entries open late May, with more detail on the 2021 categories being revealed soon so please do keep an eye out in these pages, and on www.commercialmotor.com.
