Northern Powerhouse Business Summit

The event was the central experience during the Great Exhibition of the North and explored the creativity and innovation of northern businesses.

HemingwayDesign teamed up with Newcastle-based events management company BeaconHouse Events in July 2018 to deliver the first ever Northern Powerhouse Business Summit, during the Great Exhibition of the North.

The summit brought together small businesses, government ministers, city region mayors and business leaders from across the North of England. Together they have helped to shape the next stage of the Northern Powerhouse through panel discussions, presentations, workshops and speeches.

There was also a number of workshops, delivered by Northern businesses, designed to provide a more in-depth look at the themes of growing the Artificial Intelligence and data driven economy, clean growth, the future of mobility and an ageing society. Workshops included practical sessions on designing for an ageing population, the future of work, digital transformation and building a Northern industrial strategy.
