The latest in a series of events aimed at boosting Middlesbrough’s business community has taken place at a key city centre venue.

And local entrepreneurs are already lining up to attend the next quarterly Breakfast Exchange to share ideas and make the most of networking opportunities.

Middlesbrough Council’s Invest in Middlesbrough 2018 business breakfasts kicked off on Thursday, June 7 in the spectacular surroundings of the newly refurbished Middlesbrough Town Hall.

The Breakfast Exchange offers local businesses, companies and individuals an opportunity to hear first-hand about the Council’s current and future regeneration plans, and to meet up with counterparts from a wide range of sectors and industries.

This month’s event saw more than 80 attendees welcomed to the event’s new home in the renovated Middlesbrough Town Hall to hear the latest news on Middlesbrough’s ground breaking new development the Teesside Advanced Manufacturing Park (TeesAMP).

Middlesbrough Council’s Head of Economic Growth Sam Gilmore, along with TeesAMP developer Geoff Hogg, agents Dodds Brown and Logic Architecture provided an overview of the public/private partnership and the progress of the initiative.

Middlesbrough Mayor Dave Budd said: “Middlesbrough’s future success and growth relies in no small part on a vibrant, thriving city centre economy.

“We’ve made great strides in the last few years to establish Middlesbrough as the city heart of the Tees Valley, and our business community has been key in driving that forward.

“The Breakfast Exchanges are rightly popular as an informal forum in which find out what’s happening across Middlesbrough, share ideas and forge new partnerships.”
