Returning for its fourth consecutive year on 27 September 2018 at the new Beacon of Light, the North East Automotive Expo is the region's only event solely focused on the automotive sector. 

The North East Automotive Expo plays a key role in increasing the profile of the North East automotive sector and showcasing the regions significant and growing automotive capability. It also provides companies with a platform to connect, do business and learn about the support available to them.

The success of the Expo over the previous three years demonstrates the importance of the North East automotive sector and has paved way to attract more senior figures and industry representatives from outside of the region.
