Cluster Connect is your opportunity to catch up with members, hear the latest news, promote developments and network with your target audience.
This free, monthly meeting brings together members and offers the opportunity to make introductions, develop connections and gain support and inspiration from industry colleagues, along with helping to raise your personal and business profile.
Theme – Consider New Markets for 2023
As we head into 2023, are you looking at ways your business could “spread you risk” ?
Having a website allows for “global” visibility – are you prepared for overseas interest in your products & services?
Post Covid & Brexit are you looking to challenge your business and enter a new market?
Our January Cluster Connect will allow you to hear from export professionals to talk you through what a journey to global growth could look like for you and your business; for you to understand the support and guidance available to increase your sales using international markets.
This event is open to businesses who have never exported before and those who are already exporting. The aim is to grow the aspirations of our North East business community by providing tangible information and advice no matter what stage your business is at.
Presentations from Nepic Members and DIT with support organisations from across the region attending to answer your questions.
We look forward to seeing you there!
This event is open to NEPIC Members & Supply Chain North East participants.
Supply Chain North East brings together four key partners to work with over 800 businesses through to 2021, supporting them to identify opportunities in new and existing markets. An integral part of the North East Strategic Economic Plan, that has a vision to create 100,000 more and better jobs between 2014 and 2024. , Supply Chain North East is delivered across the region by RTC North, Generator, North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) and North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC).
Supply Chain North East is a multimillion programme aimed at revolutionising the way SMEs diversify their offering and embrace new markets. The programme has received more than £3m of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund, which is part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
Trade association meetings have, in the past, been used as a forum for the establishment of cartels and they are therefore the subject of scrutiny by the UK Competition and Markets Authority.
For the purposes of remaining compliant with competition law, members should not discuss commercially sensitive strategic information (including but not limited to, details of proposed or actual pricing, information about target or key customers or expansion plans) in or around NEPIC meetings, including at unofficial get-togethers or over coffee/lunch.
