With the event celebrating its 40th anniversary, and after a 4 year COVID induced hiatus, Hillhead 2022 was always going to be a celebration of all that is admirable about the quarrying, construction and recycling industries. Set in a working quarry, in the heart of Derbyshire, the exhibition confirmed its standing as the biggest event of its kind in the world.

Not only does Hillhead boast stand space for 600+ exhibitors in the Main Pavilion, Registration Pavilion and Quarry Area; it’s also home to four separate demonstration areas - Quarry Face, Rock Processing, Recycling and Registration. In these areas there was a variety of machinery in action including excavators, wheel loaders, dozers, screening buckets, tracked and skid-mounted crushers, screens, shredders, screens and washing equipment.

For ATG, Hillhead 2022 proved to be a resounding success, not only for showcasing our global sourcing expertise to our target markets but also being actively involved in sponsoring various areas of the exhibition. Our support included hosting the Hillhead Café, sponsoring the branded lanyards and goodie bags, and supplying thousands of cups to the various eateries across the site.

4 Onsite Branding for ATG

It was particularly rewarding seeing the attendees carrying the various goodies in their ATG & A-Trax branded bags whilst wearing their lanyards. We supplied 20,000 lanyards and 8,000 bags, all of which were distributed by the excellent staff in the reception pavilion.

In addition, not only did we have our ATG, Global Sourcing Specialists, stand in the main Pavilion we also had stands for ATG Conveyor Components division and for our crawler track system manufacturer, A-Trax. This ensured that all of our business interests were represented at ATG with our key Technical and Sales Teams available to answer questions about our goods & services.

9 Benefits of Working with ATG

There’s always great speculation about what the weather will be like at Hillhead. The general consensus is that it will rain cats and dogs or be glorious sunshine! Fortunately, the latter prevailed this time, with blue skies across the site for the entire 3 days. This made the Hillhead Café, sponsored by ATG Conveyor Components, the ideal place to retreat to for a little bit of rest and recuperation.
