The North East Automotive Alliance’s (NEAA) flagship Expo, an industry highlight for companies operating within the region’s automotive supply chain, will take place for an eighth year on Thursday 28 September at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland on National Manufacturing Day.

The 2022 was the biggest success to date, with a record-breaking 700-plus delegates, over 100 exhibitors, 100 1-2-1 meetings and the largest technology showcase – helping to facilitate vital business connections for the supply chain.

With skills becoming an ever-increasing challenge across the sector, this year’s Expo will put a spotlight on this topic, together with a continued focus on innovation and technology as we move the technology showcase into the centre of the Exhibition Hall where there will be a series of demonstrations scheduled across the day. We anticipate over 750 delegates will attend the event, and it provides a great opportunity to hear about the North East automotive sector, meet the excellent companies based in the region and see the technology that exists.

  • Over 750 delegates throughout the day.

  • Over 100 exhibitors.

  • Over 100 Meet the Buyer appointments with OEMs and Tier 1 companies.

  • Headline Speakers and Panel discussions.

  • Technology Showcase demonstrating new innovation and technology.

  • Drinks and Networking Reception.

  • Networking and more…
