Full details of the Conference programme will be published in September. It will include:

  • High profile speakers from national and local organisations, providing insight to the latest thinking on business growth
  • Speakers covering the latest opportunities for businesses to access contracts, markets, support and finance
  • Case studies of successful businesses we can learn from
  • Direct contacts with large organisations who are seeking new suppliers
  • An exhibition and showcase of local success stories

The Conference is designed for small and medium sized businesses based in the Tees Valley, specifically those employing fewer than 250 staff with an annual turnover no greater than €50m per annum.

However, in order to create opportunities for these businesses to grow, we recognise the need to connect them with sources of expertise, potential customers and suppliers, support organisations and investors. With this in mind, the Conference is also open to other organisations with an interest in working with small and medium sized businesses.
