With a potentially transformative General Election looming before the end of this year, the 2024 Spring Budget will send a vital message to businesses and consumers across the North East.

As part of the Northern Echo's Level Up campaign, we will be holding a live event on Thursday March 14, with panel of business leaders discussing what happened and what the implications are for a full range of sectors right across the region - how it affects their plans, what went right and what went wrong.

Hosted by believe housing at their offices in Seaham, you can put questions to our keynote speaker and a team of experts drawn from our Level Up partners, bp, Razorblue, Durham County Council, Cummins, Darlington Building Society, North East Chamber of Commerce, Tees Valley Combined Authority, Womble Bond Dickinson and Teesside Airport.

As usual, there will be plenty of chances to network before and after the event, free parking, tea,  coffee and a light lunch. Tickets are free, but limited, so get yours by CLICKING HERE

The Northern Echo's Level Up North East campaign provides the volume for the leading voices of our region, demonstrating that we are united in working together, while continuing to demand that promises and pledges are more than just headlines and soundbites.
