Hillhead back in business

Published 19/4, 2022 at 12:48

The last edition of the Hillhead show that takes place in a quarry south of Buxton in the UK was in 2018. Due to the pandemic, the show was postponed twice, but now the popular show is back again and is set to take place from the 21 to 23 June this summer.

It’s back to face to face business at Hillhead 2022, with more companies showcasing their products and services than ever before. Around 600 exhibitors will show their latest developments at the quarry located about 3km south of the town Buxton, Derbyshire, right in the centre of England.


A pent-up need

Even though it is mainly a show for quarry equipment, there are quite a number of suppliers of demolition and recycling machinery and attachments, with the majority of the big names being there. They are either exhibiting under their brand names or local UK distributors are representing them. The last time Hillhead was organised was in June 2018, with the show being postponed in 2020 and in 2021 due to the pandemic. So you can say there is a pent-up need for a visit to the show this year.

Hillhead is actually the biggest show in the world of its kind. The quarry is a perfect setting as long as the weather is on the side of the organisers. As the show takes place directly in a large quarry, it is the perfect place to demonstrate machinery and equipment when it is sunny and dry. Unfortunately, when the rain is pouring down the quarry easily turns in to a muddy hole. But that usually doesn’t stop contractors that are used to working in these conditions. With the right clothing everything works. However, usually the weather is rather good this time of year in England and it can become extremely hot.

In the selected list of exhibitors you will find some of the exhibiting companies offering demolition and recycling equipment at Hillhead 2022.   

The exhibition takes place from 21 to 23 June 2022 at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, Derbyshire. If you come from the United Kingdom it is quite easy to access the show as it sits on the A515 road from Ashbourne. If you are a foreign visitor, the best way to get there is to fly to Manchester, Birmingham or East Midland’s airport and from there take the train to Buxton, which is only 3km from the show and a quick taxi ride.
