Hillhead embraces digital challenge

The organizers of Hillhead 2022 have confirmed an ambitious site-development programme for this summer’s event, which will see hard-wired fibre-optic broadband installed strategically across the showground. The new solution will deliver three times the bandwidth provided at the last event, increasing capacity from 300 mb to more than a gigabit.

Event director Richard Bradbury explained: “The application of digital tools in quarrying and construction is becoming increasingly prevalent, so it’s important that Hillhead keeps ahead of the curve, enabling our exhibitors to showcase the latest technology available to the industry. This investment will allow exhibitors to book more powerful internet packages at a lower cost than before. Free Wi-Fi hotspots will also be available around the site for visitors to download their e-mails and go online.”

Richard Bradbury continues: “We would like to thank our Wi-Fi sponsor for 2022, Spillard Safety Systems, who will be launching their next-generation Spillard.Live, a video telematics and management platform built from the ground up for the industries they support.”
