Demonstrating confidence in the future of the North East of England, the region has been attracting attention from national and global investors who are committed to making a social and economic impact, as well as levelling up the UK.

Three transformational projects are in the pipeline including a £300m investment into Newcastle United Football Club, a £350m investment in ‘The Sage’ an international venue for world class business and entertainment and £25m investment from BBC over the next five years.

This event will put a spotlight on these investments and discuss their role in the region’s future. This event is sponsored by transatlantic law firm Womble Bond Dickinson (WBD) who have 27 offices across the UK and US. They have deep roots in the North East, noting the city as one of the best places in the UK to live, work and do business.
