Tees Valley Business Summit expands again

Tees Valley Business Summit expands again

The sixth annual Tees Valley Business Summit is expanding on previous years to include a Tees Engineering Network (TEN) event.

Organised jointly by Tees Valley Combined Authority and Tees Valley Business Compass, booking is now open for delegates. 

Taking place on Thursday 6th July 2017 at the Olympia Building, Teesside University, the Tees Valley Business Summit is free to attend and features practical seminars, inspirational workshops, one-to-one advice meetings and networking opportunities.

The TEN event will feature two major companies and will highlight local procurement opportunities.   Business Compass is running seminars throughout the day, providing a wealth of information, advice and support.   New to this year is a series of sessions specifically targeting pre-starts, offering practical advice for inspiring entrepreneurs.   

Paul Booth, chairman of the Tees Valley Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “This is the biggest and best business networking event in the Tees Valley and it is growing every year.

“This year, one room will be dedicated to pre-start-ups to harness the region’s entrepreneurial spirit, which has been so much in evidence since the closure of SSI, with more than 270 former employees starting their own businesses so far.”

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “The aim of the Tees Valley Business Summit is to help our ambitious businesses grow and invest in Tees Valley; to connect companies to the support that exists and to demonstrate opportunities for growth.  The event has grown each year and is now the biggest business event of its kind in Tees Valley.”
