Building on the success of our North East Digital Economy

11 May @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Newcastle Gateshead Initiative, NE8 3AE

The very recent Tech Nation Report singled out Newcastle and Sunderland in the North East as centres of positive Digital Growth. Newcastle now has over 20,000 jobs in the sector with an annual value of £1bn to its economy.

As Digital Leaders consider topics for the coming year, this is a great moment to review the digital landscape in the North East and to consider the challenges and opportunities that now exist.

Join our lead discussants including Catherine Walker, Inward Investment Director at the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative and Hans Moller, Innovation Director at North East LEP to discuss:

  • What the Tech Nation report says about the region
  • The importance of the tech sector to the region’s future
  • The conditions and infrastructure needed by the sector to be a success and
  • Immediate threats and actions needed for continued growth
