Exhibit 3Sixty announced as lifting contractor for Hillhead 2024

Exhibit 3Sixty has been chosen as the logistics contractor for Hillhead 2024, at Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, June 25-27, 2024.

Hillhead is the UK’s largest quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition, with over 60,000m² of saleable space and a total site area of approximately 175,000 m². In 2022, the show celebrated its 40th year and welcomed around 600 exhibitors and 18,500 visitors. This year Hillhead will display thousands of indoor and outdoor exhibits, including live plant and equipment demonstrations from the quarrying, construction and recycling industries.

Exhibit 3Sixty Logistics’ director, Matthew Williams and logistics manager, Stephen Stewart, are both veterans of Hillhead, first providing logistics to the show in 1990. This year, they will return to the exhibition as Exhibit 3Sixty Logistics for the first time, calling on decades of experience and knowledge.

Harvey Sugden, event manager, The QMJ Group Ltd, commented, “We have worked with Matthew and Stephen at Hillhead for many years, and we are delighted to welcome them back, as they bring valuable skills, experience and expertise to this landmark event.”

Exhibit 3Sixty will be storing and transporting exhibitors’ equipment to their stands around the site to keep roads clear of traffic and to account for the limited access to and from the quarry. Requiring a multi-skilled team of 10 people for the 8 days of build-up and 4 days of breakdown, Exhibit 3Sixty will be deploying, 8 forklift trucks (4 x telescopic, 2 x counterbalance and 2 x all terrain), two Mercedes sprinter vans and other lifting equipment, including pallet trucks, jibs, and ancillaries.

Hillhead is a large-scale event with a combination of tricky loads and variable terrain. Williams and Stewart’s long track record of managing logistics will be essential to the smooth build-up and breakdown of the show.

Matthew Williams, Exhibit 3Sixty Logistics director said, “We’re looking forward to returning to Hillhead in 2024 – the terrain and relief of the quarry is a big challenge, and the weather can change road conditions in an instant. Our success relies on meticulous planning and booking ahead of the event, and having detailed contingency plans ready for the most common problems we’re likely to be facing. Like with every large outdoor event you have to be ready for anything.”
