The North East’s Thriving Sectors – The Landscape
The North East of England is home to thriving industry clusters. We have the largest single cluster of process, chemicals, and energy companies anywhere in the UK; we are globally renown as a centre of excellence for automotive manufacturing and home to one of the fasting growing digital and creative sectors anywhere in the country.
For decades, supply chain businesses have successfully delivered vital services and innovative product solutions directly into these key sectors – supporting one another’s growth whilst ensuring that the value and expertise is retained in the North East. However, as we slowly emerge from the global pandemic of 2020 and seek to get back to business, it is critical that we stay a breath of the changes that these sectors have seen and ensure that we as businesses are primed and ready to react when the latest opportunities present themselves.
Join us at 11am on Wednesday 10 February 2021 to hear from the North East’s trade associations leaders representing the chemical processing, automotive and digital sectors. Guests will gain insight into the trends, challenges, and opportunities into the region’s key industry sectors.
The purpose of the event is to enhance your sectorial knowledge by providing the insights and understanding needed to empower you to diversify your offering, expand your customer base and unlock untapped opportunities in new markets.
Target audience: Businesses from across the North East that currently supply, or are seeking to diversity, into these key sectors and are looking to increase their knowledge and understanding of the landscape and opportunities.
