Tees Valley summit attracts record numbers

The Tees Valley Business Summit attracted the most delegates and exhibitors since it was launched, with nearly 1,000 attending the keynote event in the area’s business calendar.

The event, held at Teesside University in Middlesbrough, provided an interactive platform for delegates to understand opportunities that will emerge during the coming months, both in Tees Valley and across international markets, as well as offering extensive networking opportunities.

Another element was the launch of the Tees Valley Business Compass - a new business support service.

The Tees Valley Business Compass is made up of a number of organisations who each offer support to growing businesses in Tees Valley.

Through an online tool, business support helpline and a dedicated team, companies can get up to date information on the latest support programmes and initiatives available and can find out where to go for help.

More than 650 delegates signed up to the summit, which included practical seminars, inspirational workshops, one-to-one advice meetings and networking opportunities, featuring more than 320 representatives staffing 80 stands.

Stephen Catchpole, Managing Director of TVU, the Local Enterprise Partnership for Tees Valley, said: “The aim of the Business Summit, which is the area’s largest networking event, was to enthuse, motivate, inform and provide business-generating and networking opportunities for companies across Tees Valley.

“The summit provided the ideal forum to highlight the support available to growing businesses in Tees Valley with many of the Tees Valley Business Compass partners delivering workshops and being on hand to meet companies in the exhibition and networking sessions.”
