The outdoor floorplan is close to being finalised with over 90 % of space already sold. In addition to the usual Hillhead regulars, this year’s extension to the showground has allowed a plethora of new companies to attend including, among others: Yanmar; Hidromek; MB Crusher; Magni Telescopic Handlers; McLanahan Corporation; Merlo UK; Arjes (Doyle Machinery); BHS-Sonthofen; and DAF Trucks.
Meanwhile, demand for indoor space has been unprecedented with both the Main Pavilion and Registration Pavilion filling up quickly. Companies exhibiting for the first time include: Balluff; Criptic-Arvis; Petro-Canada Lubricants; Senseye; Bonomi Group; Crush+Size Technology; Twin Disc; Lubas; Simbas; Vulkan Industries; Henkel Loctite; Sulzer Pumps; Yudin Equipment; TCE Transmission; and many more.
Event manager Harvey Sugden commented: “We know that Hillhead is an extremely popular show in the industry calendar and we always have an excellent response from exhibitors, but this year the demand has been overwhelming.”
Hillhead takes place from 23 to 25 June at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton.
