The North East Industrial Strategy

A confident, creative collaborative and connected North East - making our mark on the world

About this event

On 16 July 2019, we hosted an Engagement Summit where over 350 delegates met to hear more about the Local Industrial Strategy and took part in thematic discussions around the context, evidence base and emerging priorities for the specific themes. You can read more about the Summit here.

We’ve pulled together all of the documents that you might find useful from the event and you can download these below, this includes the presentation slides from all of our keynote speakers and the booklets that were used during each of our nine  thematic discussion.

Attendee feedback


We have had an excellent day at the #northeastlis event day. Incredibly well organised, good speakers in the morning & interesting workshops later to help develop our Local Industrial Strategy.

Enjoyed #NorthEastLIS event today. Thanks to @northeastlep for all their great work.
