NewcastleGateshead Initiative markets NewcastleGateshead on a national and international stage; its mission is to inspire people to visit, and to live, learn, work and invest here.
The focus of all activity is economic growth; the organisation works to change perceptions and create positive profile in order to attract visitors, major conferences and events, students, new investment and jobs.
Established in 2000, NewcastleGateshead Initiative is a public-private partnership supported by Gateshead Council, Newcastle City Council, and over 170 private sector partner organisations across North East England. Over the past decade, the organisation has established a strong track record of successful delivery and as a result has grown both its partnership base and portfolio of work – all with the aim of creating a supportive environment for wider economic development.
Key areas of activity include:
This year we celebrate 15 years of successful public-private partnership. Partnership underpins everything we do and achieve at NewcastleGateshead Initiative.
Businesses are being encouraged to have their say in the debate about the devolution of power, funding and responsibilities to the North East. The North East Combined Authority and the think tank IPPR North are seeking views to inform discussions.
Upcoming key regional business events including events from the North East Chamber of Commerce, Entrepreneurs Forum and more.
