QMJ postpones Hillhead expo

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 9:15 am

With a global pandemic in progress, social distancing high on the agenda for most people and major players in the sector shuttering operations for the foreseeable future, it comes as no surprise to learn that the QMJ Group has decided to postpone the 2020 Hillhead exhibition.

Hillhead, the biennial showcase for the quarrying and construction industries, was originally scheduled to take place from June 23-25. It has now been postponed until June 22-24, 2021. The proposed new dates would seem to clash with next year’s Plantworx, but it appears that the organisers of both events have come to an arrangement whereby the latter will now take place in 2022.

Back in the present day, and in explaining what must have been a painful decision, Hillhead Event Director Richard Bradbury said: “The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors, contractors and employees is our number one priority and with the peak of the epidemic predicted to coincide with the show in June, this would be severely compromised.

“Therefore, following an extensive consultation process, the decision has been taken to delay the event by a year to allow market conditions to stabilise and to best support the construction and quarrying industry during this challenging period.”

For his part, Rob Oliver, chief executive of the Construction Equipment Association, commented: “Whilst we are, of course, reluctant to change our plans for Plantworx 2021, these are unprecedented times.

“In the interests of both our sets of exhibitors and the industry as a whole, we will shortly announce our new dates for the next Plantworx in June 2022 at our Peterborough home.”

Our diaries are reset and a harmony of sorts is restored, then. Hopefully, the ongoing epidemic quickly abates and we can look forward to next year’s event at the Hillhead Quarry, Buxton. Keep an eye on www.hillhead.com for further information.
