Man Engine is powered by a
The Man Engine – a miner wearing a miner’s hat – was created to celebrate the history of mining in the south-east English county of Cornwall. The Hillhead show is one of many events for the Volvo-powered Man Engine as it tours England and Wales this summer.
With only a handful of outdoor stands left to allocate, Hillhead 2018 will host more than 500 exhibiting companies for the first time. The area around the demonstration area at the top of the showground has been redesigned to accommodate additional static stands and demonstrations showcasing working plant.
Companies already booked in the newly expanded area include, among others: Weir Minerals Europe, MDS International, Red Rhino, Rees Machinery Group, MEKA Crushing and Batching Technology, Renault Trucks, Gap Hire Solutions and Indeco.
A new 70m-long structure will be sited alongside the existing registration pavilion to boost its capacity to 90 exhibitors.
“With the main pavilion selling out before the end of last year and enquiries still flooding in, we have made the decision to extend again, creating the opportunity for an additional 30 exhibitors to attend,” said Richard Bradbury, Hillhead event director.
