Expo Partner Sponsor: Invest South Tyneside return as long-standing sponsor

South Tyneside is a fantastic choice for automotive suppliers looking for premises. Uniquely positioned in the centre of the North East; home to the Port of Tyne with excellent access to main arterial roads.

The IAMP site adjacent to the Nissan plant offers bespoke industrial space in South Tyneside, primed for the automotive supply chain. Smaller scale industrial units are also available.

Cllr Tracey Dixon, Leader of South Tyneside Council, said: “We’re delighted to once again be sponsoring this flagship event, which continues to highlight the importance of networking, collaboration and innovation across the automotive sector in our region.

“South Tyneside is an ideal location for automotive businesses, with competitive premises including bespoke large-scale developments on IAMP and smaller industrial units.

“This event is a great forum to showcase our central location; excellent transport links; skilled workforce and pipeline of college and university graduates. It also brings to life the collaborative, industry-led approach to innovation and technology within manufacturing that is so important here in the North East.”

Paul Butler, CEO at NEAA, said: “Thanks to our continued sponsorship from Invest South Tyneside we are able to bring the Expo back each year, always looking to make key improvements and deliver a valuable, industry-led event that brings the North East automotive supply chain together. With so much to offer in South Tyneside and the significant IAMP development that has already attracted a number of major automotive companies, the NEAA continues to showcase what the area has to offer and the Expo is an excellent platform to do this.”
