Organised by the Tees Valley Combined Authority and Tees Valley Business Compass, the event featured practical seminars, inspirational workshops from everything from innovation, developing skills, exporting, marketing to workplace pensions.
A new campaign was also launched aimed at promoting Tees Valley as a place to do business. Live Work Play in Tees Valley, backed by leading business figures, highlights what Tees Valley offers companies already based here and those considering starting up, expanding or relocating to the area.
Andrew Lewis, managing director of Tees Valley Combined Authority, said: “This is the biggest and best Tees Valley Business Summit yet.
”We’ve got so many stands here, so many presentations, opportunities to meet, understand the support available, advice on how to access skills, business support and finance.
“All of that available in one place in the magnificent venue of Teesside University.”
Ian Wharton, business development manager at Owen Pugh, added: “I think the Business Summit is great for local opportunities and for local companies to get together and show exactly what they can offer.”
Tees Valley Business Summit is sponsored by Teesside University, North East Chamber of Commerce, Federation of Small Business, Lingfield Point, Tilly Baily and Irvine and Boho Print.
