The move follows consultation with exhibitors and speakers, and the online event will now take place on 30-31 March not 9-10 March as initially planned.
Show director Richard Bradbury commented: "We appreciate that with schools now closed until at least half-term and much of the workforce working from home until the end of February, it makes sense to build in some more time to allow the industry to get the most from Hillhead Digital at the end of March."
More than 250 exhibitors have so far confirmed their participation, with the new Hillhead Digital platform being demonstrated to customers later this month and on track to go live from mid-March.
The organisers say the Digitalisation and Decarbonisation programmes of the New Horizons I Building the Recovery Conference are already oversubscribed, with plans in place to add a fifth ‘Industry Spotlight’ stream to accommodate wider demand for participation in the event.
Hillhead Digital is free to attend with 60 seminars being held over two days, as well as the opportunity to gain access to hundreds of suppliers and network with industry peers in an online, digital environment.
The Hillhead quarrying, construction and recycling equipment event is scheduled to be held at Hillhead Quarry, Buxton in Derbyshire, UK on 22-24 June this year.
