Business bosses praise “brilliant” summit as it returns in person for 10th year

The tenth Tees Valley Business Summit came back as an in-person event for the first time since 2019.

Business leaders applauded the return of one of the biggest days in the region’s calendar, held once again at Teesside University.

The event coincided with the launch of SeAH Wind Ltd’s £400mmammoth offshore wind monopile facility, and companies were told about the latest developments at Teesside Airport, which is currently capitalising on its land and assets with a £200million business park.

How firms can access the funding and support they need to thrive via Tees Valley Business was also the subject of another of the 15 seminars.

It also provided a valuable networking opportunity, with more than 90 exhibitors on hand, including national and international companies such as WSP to local firms like Square One Law, fabricators Katmex and Active financial planners.

Simon Green, CEO of Edge Innovation Ltd. said: “There is more opportunity than ever before brimming in our region and this is the ideal platform to get together with the local business community, investors and innovators to find how we can collaborate and move forward together.”

Tees Valley mayor Ben Houchen said: “Iit was fantastic that our businesses could hear about all of the opportunities available at our Freeport and the sites it covers, like Teesworks and our airport.

“With everyone back in one place once again, there was a real buzz and enthusiasm which shows how important the Business Summit is in supporting our companies, helping them to forge new links and grow.

“Thanks to the huge developments driving forward good-quality, well-paid jobs across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, our region is facing a period of unparalleled opportunity.”

The event was held in partnership with UMi, Tees Valley Business, the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority, North East Enterprise Agency Ltd, Square One Law and Teesside University.
