Hillhead 2020 set for record-breaking event

Hillhead will return from 23 to 25 June 2020 at the Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, the UK. The show organiser said that 550 exhibitors have now confirmed their participation, making it a record-breaking event.

Event director Richard Bradbury said, “With extensions to both the outdoor and indoor areas, we have been able to accommodate more exhibitors than ever before - providing our visitors with an unrivalled range of suppliers to source from.”

All the usual Hillhead regulars will be joined by a host of new companies including Prinoth, Cemen Tech, Sany Europe, Flogas, Shell International, Hidromek, Elkon, Kal Tire, Goldhofer, Aerzen, Magotteaux, Yanmar, Magni Telescopic Handlers, McLanahan Corporation, Merlo UK and Fruehauf, among others.

The organiser further announced an ambitious site-development programme, which will see hard-wired fibre-optic broadband installed strategically across the showground. This new solution will deliver three times the bandwidth provided at the 2018 event, increasing capacity from 300 MB to more than 1 GB. 

“The application of digital tools in quarrying and construction is becoming increasingly prevalent. It’s important that Hillhead keeps ahead of the curve, enabling our exhibitors to showcase the latest technology available to the industry,” said Mr Bradbury.

“This investment will allow exhibitors to book more powerful Internet packages at a lower cost than before. Free Wi-Fi hotspots will also be available around the site for visitors to download their e-mails and go online.”
