Join us at the start of the new year, as we kick off our member networking events for 2024 at Nissan Sunderland.

Get together with fellow members for an informal catch up and update on the sector. Find out more about the latest industry news, learn more about maximising your membership and talk to the NEAA team and fellow cluster participants. You will have the opportunity to introduce and promote your company to the network as part of the member introductions.

Hear from our host Nissan, whose Sunderland Plant is the UK’s largest car manufacturer and one of the North East’s biggest employers with over 6,000 staff. With nearly a 40 year history in the North East of England, the plant has built over 11 million cars since the first Bluebird rolled off the line in 1986 and is the fastest UK car manufacturer to meet this milestone. The plant is now home to a fully electrified line up of the Qashqai e-Power, Juke Hybrid and 100% electric Nissan LEAF.

Nissan Sunderland is now driving forward with the EV36Zero project.  This exciting project consists of three main elements: a new electric vehicle, a 12GWh gigafactory with the company’s battery partner Envision AESC, and a microgrid to deliver 100% renewable energy to Nissan and suppliers, setting a blueprint for the future of the automotive industry.

So, join us to hear more from the sector, maximise your membership and connect with like-minded businesses who make up the UK’s largest automotive cluster.
