Following a review of the UK government roadmap to ease Covid-19 restrictions announced on 22 February 2021, The QMJ Group has made the decision to postpone Hillhead by 12 months.
Hillhead event director Richard Bradbury explained, ‘Under these guidelines, it is clear that the show will not be able to operate legally in June this year.
“Our priority is to provide the Hillhead experience that our exhibitors and visitors have come to expect but, with the continuing uncertainty around travel restrictions and social distancing measures, this is not achievable in 2021.”
Hillhead is the UK’s largest quarrying exhibition, targeted at professionals involved in the quarrying, construction and recycling industries. The show was due to take place from 22 to 24 June 2021.
“By delaying the show until June 2022, the full benefits of a completed vaccination programme will have filtered through, allowing us to deliver a safe and vibrant event,” said Mr Bradbury.
“The team look forward to welcoming you back to Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, from 21–23 June 2022.”
