About Us

WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO

Bring It On, The Exhibition for Future Engineers in the North East and the Tees Valley is about to enter its fifth successful year. Three live exhibitions have been run, in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we delivered Virtual Bring It On, a series of 20 videos featuring North East based engineering companies and the engineers that work for them.

Bring It On Limited was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in December 2019, as a vehicle to take Bring It On forward into the future. It became a Registered Charity in August 2020.

The Bring It On team are incredibly grateful for the financial backing we have received over the last 4 years and the backing of our supporters gave to enable delivery of Virtual Bring It On. All the companies featured in Virtual Bring It On have been previous exhibitors at Bring It On and we are especially grateful to them.

Looking forward to 2021, in light of uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we cannot deliver a face to face exhibition this year. We are therefore planning Virtual Bring it On Live for 4th November 2021. Resources created by our North East companies will be available to use year round and will be accessed on our website.
