Hillhead 2012 – The major show for the extractive and construction industries
We have been visiting manufacturers and some of our suppliers at the Hillhead Show. This show is the UK’s major event for the extractive and construction industries. It is held every two (2) years and runs for 3 days. This year there were over 17,000 visitors seeing product, plant and machinery from 459 exhibitors.
The next show is in 2014. Link for information on this year’s event and the next Hillhead is at www.hillhead.com
Major companies such as JCB, Case, CAT, New Holland, Doosan, Hyundai and Komatsu all attended to name just afew. The event is held at Tarmac’s quarry near Buxton Derbyshire. Majority of stands are outdoor. In addition there are a number of covered halls and several demonstration areas where live demonstrations were occurring throughout each day of the show. Well worth attending in 2014.
We have attached a number of photographs of our visit.
