Success for Mentor at Hillhead Exhibition
5th July 2018
After exhibiting at the world’s largest quarrying and extractives exhibition last month, we are very excited to share that the Hillhead exhibition in Buxton, Derbyshire was a huge success for Mentor! There was a tremendous turnout over the three days along with the beautiful weather, throughout which, we were able to showcase our expertise, knowledge and the training services we provide.
The exhibition had an array of live demonstrations and interactive stands for attendees to visit, including the biggest mechanical puppet ever to be constructed. The working demonstrations provided visitors with an insight into the workings of a live quarry environment whilst also being able to marvel at the vast array of companies providing machinery for the shows. Hillhead not only demonstrated equipment for quarry faces, but also showcased the inner workings of rock processing, recycling and registration.
In addition to live demonstrations that surrounded the central exhibition, there was a multitude of stands and pavilions for visitors to explore. Amongst the hub of exhibitors, Mentor were based in the centre of the Main Pavilion; we received a great amount of interest and were able to network with a whole host of businesses and visitors. Our Head of Apprenticeships, Tracy Colton, was also at Hillhead talking all things apprenticeships and discussing the programmes that we are currently offering under our lead provider status.
Mentor Director and MP Futures ambassador, Emily Bonsall, was part of the MPQC stand on the final day of the exhibition to give insight into the way in which we are inspiring futures and attracting new talent into the industry. Emily was on-hand to discuss the ways in which we are bringing the next generation of talented young individuals into the minerals and mining industry.
After having such a great time exhibiting this year, we are eager to see what the next couple of years has in store for us before the next Hillhead event.
