In light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the organisers of UK quarry exhibition Hillhead 2020 have taken the step to postpone the event to next year.

The event, which was scheduled to take place between June 23 and 25 this year, will now take place 12 months later and be held over 22 to 24 June 2021.

Also following industry consultation, fellow UK construction show Plantworx – previously scheduled for 2021 – will now be postponed until June 2022, with dates to be announced soon.

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.

“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.”

As far as Plantworx is concerned, Rob Oliver, Chief Executive of the Construction Equipment Association (CEA), said, “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.”
