Taking place at the Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough on Thursday 18th November, the Grow Tees Valley Conference is designed to help local businesses access the expertise, market opportunities, support and finance they need to grow. The Conference is free to attend.
Full details of the Conference programme will be published in September. It will include:
The Conference will include an exhibition and showcase as well as plenty of opportunities to make new connections with customers, suppliers, support organisations and potential partners. A big part of bringing 200 ambitious business leaders into one event is the learning and new opportunities this creates.
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.
Teesside University has appointed ed/ge to develop and deliver the Conference. ed/ge is a specialist provider of innovation, business growth and finance support across the Northern Powerhouse and the team previously developed and delivered the VentureFest Tees Valley and VentureFest North East conferences.
There will be a limited number of free exhibition spaces for business support organisations and for small and medium sized Tees Valley businesses to showcase their successes. As demand is likely to be high and space limited, we will be assessing which organisations are provided with space in September. To be considered for a space, register for the event and complete the required information in Eventbrite before 24th September 2021. One of the team will get back to you following assessment of all submissions.
Further information about the Conference will be published in September.
