This morning, thousands of attendees were descending on Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, in Derbyshire, England, for the first day of the three-day industry showpiece.

Throughout the exhibition, visitors can watch a wide range of premium quarrying machines being put to work by global quarrying equipment brands. Over 600 exhibitors, including major OEMs such as Metso Outotec, Sandvik, Terex Materials Processing, Kleemann, McLanahan, and Cummins, will be debuting new product ranges and showcasing their latest state-of-the-art solutions.

From heavyweight 'kit' to ancillary products and services, Hillhead serves the whole of the quarrying, construction and recycling industry. The 2022 show will feature more exhibitors than ever before following an extension to the showground, allowing a host of new companies to exhibit alongside Hillhead regulars. See who's exhibiting this year.

A forecast 20,000 visitors will also enjoy several new additions to the site, with a new-look registration area, reconfigured demonstration sites and the opportunity to get even closer to the live action in the Quarry Face demonstration zone.
