NEAA Membership Services

As a proactive industry-led cluster group, the North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) is here to represent and work on behalf of the whole North East automotive sector, whether a company is making cars or components, working in commercial, off-highway or engine manufacture.

AVID Technology have been a member of NEAA since its establishment as well as a key part of the NEAA Trade Group since its launch in 2019. The Trade Group brings together several diverse businesses to share industry experience and knowledge. AVID has significantly benefited from the insights provided both by the NEAA Team and its Members which has opened up new opportunities for AVID in new markets such as Defence/Marine and new territories such as Eastern Europe.

The NEAA is a not for profit organisation limited by guarantee and membership is restricted to companies and not personal membership. Fees start from as little as £220 + VAT per annum... Join here
