A business networking breakfast to celebrate the role of businesses in Great Exhibition of the North.

Please note the change of venue to the Great Hall at Discovery Museum.

Held at the Discovery Museum, a major Great Exhibition of the North venue located on the innovation trail, this event will not only celebrate the involvement of all businesses to date – including through sponsorship, content provision and attendance at events – but will also look ahead to future opportunities.

The GX Project, which includes an exciting series of B2B networking events, innovation challenges and workshops, aims to support North East SMEs and scaleups before, during and after the Great Exhibition of the North. Join us at this event where we will launch an exciting new grants scheme, designed to help accelerate the growth of small businesses and ensure a long-term positive impact on the region.


The GX project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Growth Programme 2014-20 for England.
