Three days of live demonstrations, over 600 exhibitors and thousands of products for the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.
Held in a limestone quarry, Hillhead has maintained its reputation as the UK's largest quarrying exhibition, welcoming 20,000 visitors from across the world who come to experience the show's unique atmosphere, meet suppliers and see the latest equipment, products and services on offer.
Hillhead would not be complete without its live demonstrations. The Quarry Face, Crusher Alley, Recycling and Registration Demonstration Areas will once again showcase a host of plant and equipment, all being put through its paces in a live quarry environment. See our dedicated demonstration page for details.
We look forward to seeing you at the next show in 25-27 June 2024.
Hillhead is free-to-attend. Visitors are advised to pre-register for their free entry badge online to ensure fast-track entry and avoid queues onsite.
