As a member of the Association of Event Organisers, the Hillhead 2021 team has already begun planning the event to fulfil the 'All Secure Standard'.

This is a programme of enhanced measures, approved by the government, that set out industry best practice and guidance for working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19). Set around the cornerstones of Social Distancing, Cleaning & Hygiene, Protect & Detect and Communication, an overview is available here

Show director Richard Bradbury explains: "Whilst it is likely that some of these measures will be relaxed by June 2021, Hillhead has taken the decision to plan for them at the earliest opportunity, ensuring visitors and exhibitors will be supported in the most effective manner. A comprehensive framework for a safe show is already being put in place, which we look forward to sharing with you in the New Year."

Meanwhile, Hillhead 2021 welcomes a host of new exhibitors that have signed up during the lockdown, including LiuGong Direct UK, Barford, Fox Brothers, John King Chains, Kelly Tanks and DXB Pump & Power. 

Exhibitor enquiries should be directed to Charlotte Stacey: Email: charlotte.stacey@qmj.co.uk; or tel: +44 (0)115 945 4376. 

The popular bi-annual event will take place from 22–24 June 2021 at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, Derbyshire, England. View the current list of exhibitors here.
