Business bosses are being urged to sign up for the tenth Tees Valley Business Summit as it returns as an in-person event for the first time since 2019.
There are just two weeks to go until the region’s largest business event takes place at Teesside University’s Student Union on 7 July.
More than 750 delegates are expected to book their free tickets for the Business Summit which will welcome more than 90 exhibitors of all sizes, from national and international companies such as Natwest and WSP to local firms like Square One Law, fabricators Katmex and Active financial planners.
There will be 15 seminars on the day, with Tees Valley Business giving information on how they can support business growth ambitions. Presentations will also be held on the latest exciting developments at Teesside International Airport, and how businesses can take advantage of all the opportunities coming as part the Teesside Freeport – the UK’s biggest and first operational.
Free tickets are still available for the event now at www.teesvalleysummit.co.uk.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “Ever since last year, when the event had to be paused due to lockdown restrictions, business leaders have been asking us when the next Business Summit would take place, showing just how popular it is, and the massive appetite people have to take part.
“Now that restrictions have been lifted, we can come back with an in-person event that promises to be every bit as successful as previous years, with a host of top companies exhibiting, a packed programme of informative seminars and a great chance to network.
“Obviously the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic are still being felt by many, and this will be a great way for our innovators, job creators and entrepreneurs to come together and share their experiences.
“But it’s more positive than just recovery – transformative projects are taking place right now across Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool, with massive multibillion-pound investment in our region creating opportunity like never before, and this year’s Business Summit will help firms get in on the ground floor to take advantage of everything happening here.”
The event is being put together 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.
