You're invited to learn about the opportunities which the Heathrow Airport Expansion can offer local supply chains and potential support from Supply Chain North East. There are real opportunities to feed into this multi-billion pound project, and the Expansion Team is committed to ensuring that the investment benefits all areas of the UK, creating investment and business opportunities for suppliers, manufacturers, and consultancies in the North East.
The session will be used to understand what the opportunities are, and what support people and organisations feel they need to access them. We want to support a strong NE presence at the Heathrow Business Summit in Newcastle on 3rd May, so there is a clear message that the NE is a region that is ready and willing to do business.
