The North East LEP is inviting organisations to submit details of any forthcoming events which are designed to support economic growth in the North East.

Events which align with any of the LEP’s six key priorities, and its aim of delivering more and better jobs, will be promoted to the region’s business community via the organisation’s website and social media channels.

Kate Hargreaves said: “The North East LEP website is a hub of information for anyone who wants to find out about the plan for delivering more and better jobs here in the North East.

“We’re working to make the North East a place where businesses can invest grow and prosper and, as a part of that, we are providing an area of the site where people can view a selection of events coming up which are designed to help make the area a better place for business.”

Events which are aimed at members of the North East business community, and which fit with one or more of the following themes, can be submitted for inclusion on the website:

• Innovation
• Business support and access to finance
• Skills
• Economic assets and infrastructure
• Employability and inclusion
• Transport and connectivity

Kate Hargreaves added: “The types of events which we are helping to promote include conferences, seminars, mentoring and networking opportunities. We want to bring news of events like these direct to those who can benefit from them.”

Events can be submitted for inclusion on the website via the online form.
