Technology and skills take the focus at North East Automotive Expo with huge sector support
Taking place on National Manufacturing Day on Thursday 28 September, the North East Automotive Expo will put a spotlight on skills and technology. Organised by the North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA), the Expo, the flagship event for the region's automotive industry, generates support from major players in the sector along with a strong line up of sponsors and last year welcomed over 700 delegates.
The Technology Showcase area will demonstrate some of the innovative technology being designed in the region to support the evolution of the automotive sector. Meet the Buyer, which facilitates over 100 one-to-one meetings each year, along with numerous successful supply chain opportunities and awarded projects, will return with support from OEMs and tier one suppliers.
Alongside a planned Skills Panel to discuss future skills needs, the NEAA has partnered with Wardley Primary School in Gateshead to showcase its range of robotics. The NEAA and industry realise the importance of supporting and working with schools to boost the future talent pipeline as the automotive sector competes for skilled people.
