The next edition of Hillhead - the UK’s largest quarrying exhibition - will take place from 22 to 24 June 2021, announced the organiser. To be held at the Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, the exhibition is targeted at professionals involved in the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.
As a member of the Association of Event Organisers, the Hillhead 2021 team has already begun planning the event to fulfil the ‘All Secure Standard’ - a programme of enhanced measures, approved by the UK government, that sets out industry best practice and guidance for working safely during Covid-19. It is set around the cornerstones of social distancing, cleaning & hygiene, protect & detect and communication.
“Whilst it is likely that some of these measures will be relaxed by June 2021, Hillhead has taken the decision to plan for them at the earliest opportunity, ensuring visitors and exhibitors will be supported in the most effective manner,” said Richard Bradbury, the show director. “A comprehensive framework for a safe show is already being put in place, which we look forward to sharing with you in the new year.”
The organiser said that Hillhead 2021 would be joined by several new exhibitors that have signed up during the lockdown, including LiuGong Direct UK, Barford, Fox Brothers, John King Chains, Kelly Tanks and DXB Pump & Power.
