Bring It On, The Exhibition for Future Engineers in the North East and the Tees Valley, is targeted at young people aged 9-14. It aims to raise the aspirations of North East youngsters and contribute to closing the engineering skills gap in the region.
We exclusively showcase North East based engineering companies. They range from large multinationals with a presence in our region to small SMEs. Engineering companies exhibit in five zones representing the five major engineering sectors in the region; Automotive, Rail and Aerospace; Creative & Digital Technology; Civil, Structural and Construction Engineering; Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables and Energy and Chemicals & Processing.
Three live exhibitions have been run, in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, and 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we delivered Virtual Bring It On, in 2020 this featured a series of 20 videos featuring North East based engineering companies and the engineers that work for them.
