Business engagement series launched by Teesside International Airport
Teesside International Airport will host a business engagement dinner to support the Tees Valley’s business community.
In a first-of-its-kind dinner, business leaders from across Teesside will join Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen and airport operator Stobart Group’s Kate Willard at Teesside International Airport later this month.
“I’ve always said that now the airport is back under public ownership, it should work for the good of our brilliant businesses as well as providing great links for local people,” said Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said. “I’m delighted to be welcoming some of our amazing business leaders to this dinner, where they will be able to see first-hand how our ten-year rescue plan is getting on and the improvements we’ve made. They’ll also learn about the opportunities on site and how we can work together to help them, and the airport, succeed.”
The meeting will showcase Teesside International’s stress-free and business-friendly facilities first-hand as the airport continues to support the Tees Valley’s vibrant and striving business community. It will also focus on how Teesside International can become a hub for the 17,500 businesses in the region.
“We are excited to launch our first business engagement dinner at Teesside International later this month,” added Kate Willard, Director of Partnership Development at Stobart Group. “We are very keen to work closely with the region’s companies and entrepreneurs and show how Teesside International can take their business to the skies. Having run similar programmes at our other airports, we have found that these events are a great way to celebrate hard-working business leaders, while informing them about our strong offering.”
Teesside International was rebranded from Durham Tees Valley Airport earlier this year, owing to its global ambitions and worldwide links.
