Expo Sunderland Briefings

Attend one of our next Expo briefings at City Hall to hear the latest from us, ask questions and network with city partners and businesses.

What is Expo Sunderland and how can you get involved?

Each briefing will look to be scheduled during an Expo event in 2024 to allow attendees the opportunity to see it for themselves.

Each briefing will include a panel of short presentations from us and city partners that are involved in Sunderland's transformation. 

All invited City Partners can be found here

Our Briefing on the 29 May 2024 is now fully booked

Please contact Sarah Gilley if you would like to be added to the waiting list or to register your interest in the next briefing.

 

Complimentary refreshments will be provided and presentations distributed after the event to attendees.

BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE HERE

Briefings will take place regularly but if you can't attend, why not contact Clair Cogdon to book a 30 minute 1-2-1 meeting on Teams or in person at City Hall instead?
