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:
After years of preparation, Rugby World Cup 2015 finally arrived in the Host City of Newcastle last month, bringing with it international fans from around the world and a global audience of millions.
Tens of thousands of rugby fans will again descend on NewcastleGateshead as the Super League Magic Weekend returns to St James' Park next year.
Upcoming key regional business events including events from the North East Chamber of Commerce, Entrepreneurs Forum and more.
