    “The events organised by the Chamber have been extremely valuable to us at Glass Digital, particularly networking across the region. We have been able to build relationships with stand-out companies and have even secured a couple of business partnerships off the back of Chamber Local events, hopefully this will work towards growing both our and our partners businesses.

    Since becoming members we have also exhibited at the Teesside Expo and North East Expo. Both events were a huge success, putting us in front of complimentary businesses and potential clients. We hope to do many more of this type of brand exercise in future and it is great to have the team at NEECC that can help you along the way.”
