Hillhead: A Decade of Experience and Sales Excellence

Hillhead is the UK’s biggest Quarry, Construction and Recycling Exhibition. MVIS has the honour of returning after 2 years.

Two years ago the MVIS team attended Hillhead for the first time. This provided the perfect opportunity to explore the market in greater detail. After showcasing at the event and gaining new customers, 2024 gives us the chance to return to Buxton for the next instalment of Hillhead, becoming part of the UK’s biggest Quarry Exhibition show.
