28 – 30 June 2016, Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, Derbyshire

Hillhead is the world’s biggest exhibition for the quarrying, recycling and construction industries. Internationally-renowned, this three-day exhibition is held every two years near Buxton, Derbyshire. It showcases the latest products, services and equipment for the above industries, while also providing visitors with a valuable opportunity to view specialist plant first hand, via live demonstration areas.


Part of the event’s unique appeal springs from its picturesque setting in a live quarry in the English Peak District. Held during the month of June, the event often coincides with pleasant Summer weather and is increasingly popular as providing a sun-soaked, educational, fun and action-packed day out!

Despite unusually inclement weather bucking that trend this year, the 2016 event was the biggest yet and official records show that a bumper 18,655 unique visitors (from 71 countries) attended – representing a 7.1% increase in attendance over the previous show in 2014.

Once again this year, Corgin were the “dust suppression provider of choice” for the show’s organisers and we demonstrated our MistCannons and DustLayers in two different areas on site, while also helping to check fugitive dust emissions from the machinery demonstrations in progress.

We’ll be back again with an even bigger and better showing at Hillhead 2018!
