Hillhead Digital announces conference streams for 2021


Hillhead Digital has announced a two-day programme for its New Horizons – Building the Recovery conference, as the free online exhibition ramps up at the end of March.

Speakers and panels at the conference will discuss the key themes of digitalisation, decarbonisation and infrastructure.

A fourth stream on the importance of People will explore the new skills industry will need in order to develop necessary changes. The UK’s Institute of Quarrying will run both the People stream as well as an Industry Spotlight to provide visitors with a catalogue of content to learn from and interact with.

Hillhead Digital event director Richard Bradbury said the emphasis on transforming industry’s knowledge and skill sets moving forward is imperative.

“As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to come together as an industry to not only tackle the challenges ahead, but also celebrate our achievements and share good practice,” Bradbury said.

“The New Horizons – Building the Recovery conference will be a combination of pre-recorded presentations and live interaction that make the most of the Hillhead Digital platform. We look forward to welcoming you online at the end of this month.”

Attendees at the conference can pose live questions to industry leaders, pick up digital brochures and bounce ideas off peers in live chat rooms.

There will be 65 free seminars and 12 discussion panels at Hillhead Digital this year.

Keynote speaker Viv Russell is the managing director of Longcliffe Group, and Chair of the UK’s Quarries Joint National Advisory Committee (QNJAC).

Russell will speak to the role of QNJAC supporting the sector in building better.
