This year sees the return of the North East Automotive Expo, the region’s only event focused solely on the automotive sector. Offering visitors a chance to keep up to date with all things vehicular, it takes place on Thursday 26 September 2019 at the Exhibition Hall Level 00, Beacon of Light, Sunderland.
The event kicks off at 9am with an introduction and keynote speech, and gives companies from across the UK the chance to showcase their latest products and services. This year’s expo features a new Tech Zone, which provides a glimpse of some of the cutting-edge technologies that are set to shape the automotive industry.
Some 140 exhibitors will be manning stands, and over 100 one-to-one Meet the Buyer appointments will be available, enabling businesses to connect. The 2018 expo saw some 271 companies attend, and this year is set to be even more successful, with many industry representatives from outside the north east attending.
Delegates looking for a prime networking opportunity should sign up for the Expo Pre-Event Dinner on Wednesday 25 September, at the Montgomery Suite, Stadium of Light. It’s a chance to meet some of Britain’s most influential professionals, gain insights into the current developments in the automotive sector and entertain clients and VIPs. Tickets to the dinner include a three course meal, half a bottle of wine and a drinks reception, with prices starting from £75 + VAT.
Delegate passes are free to NEAA members, with non-members able to purchase them for £50 + VAT.
