What you should see at Hillhead 2024

In a matter of weeks the Hillhead 2024 equipment exhibition in the United Kingdom, which in 2022 attracted 18,000 visitors, will once again return its Buxton Quarry showground, taking place from 25 to 27 of June.

While the event is smaller in terms of visitor numbers than the likes of ConExpo and Bauma Munich, its focus on quarrying, material handling, recycling and demolition, ensures that those who do attend are guaranteed to find exactly what they need.

But with over 200 product categories, finding things can be a bit of a challenge.
