Industry Relevance 

Held for the first time in 1985, Hillhead has risen to be the biggest construction trade show in the UK and over time it’s become truly an event of international importance. Unlike other events based in exhibition centres, Hillhead takes up the Hillhead Quarry outside of Buxton, UK, where visitors can see machinery operated in real working conditions. That’s the major appeal and selling point of the trade show. The product portfolio extends to the entire value chain including screens and washing equipment, stone working machines, ball and roller bearings, vehicles, shredders, rock processing and recycling, specialist crushers. Hillhead makes it possible to connect with buyers and experts from across the world. The environment is geared towards conducting business.

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Hillhead sees demonstrations from respected brands like ACE Plant, Kobelco - Molson Group, McCloskey, Powerscreen, QM&S, Rubblemaster, Sandvik, SMT Volvo, Terex Finlay and Tesab. Although most professionals are UK natives, close to a third are foreign nationals. The biggest percentage come from countries in the European Union then followed by the Middle East. There’s also good numbers from Asia and North America. In terms of visitors, you have a wide variety of professional backgrounds whether that’s deep mining, recycling or civil engineering. You get to meet with specialist contractors, plant hire, demolition and equipment suppliers. Digitalization is also an important topic at Hillhead and in 2018, we saw the launch of a Driver’s App, which was created for professional drivers. 

The Latest News on COVID 

COVID-19 might have led to the cancellation of Hillhead 2021, but there’s no stopping the major construction trade show from reappearing in 2022. QMJ Publishing Ltd. is optimistic the upcoming live edition will be a return to form as there’s already a lot of enthusiasm for physical trade events from professionals. Now that the vaccination initiatives are rolling out in the UK in great numbers, it’s going to be safer to host such a big event. The Hillhead Quarry in Buxton, UK will welcome trade visitors on June 21st – June 23rd. The quarry grounds will follow coronavirus health and safety protocols and compliance is mandatory.
