Welcome to our summer update!

July was an eventful month for our team and the highlight was undoubtedly the reopening of our event space. This had been closed over the past couple of years due to the Covid 19 pandemic, so we’re thrilled that we can once again welcome our connections into our event space and host some great events!

We were delighted to exhibit at NOF’s Energy a Balanced Future (EBF) Networking event in Hull on 14 July. At the event we heard about supply chain opportunities in offshore wind, oil and gas, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen. It was also a great opportunity to network with the energy sector supply chain.

Our July Marketing Lunch and Learn event in partnership with the Engineering and Manufacturing Network was hosted by our client 3t Transform, an innovative technology company which provides a range of fully connected workforce development software. At the event, the 3t Transform team gave an insight into the power of digital twins and VR technology, and their industrial applications. Attendees were even able to try out the technology for themselves!

In this issue of our newsletter, you will find our monthly industry Q&A with the Engineering and Manufacturing Network, our latest blog on digital marketing tools, a spotlight on our exclusive event space @Horizon Works and the upcoming events that we are sponsoring and supporting.


Digital marketing tools – VR, AR, AI and more…

Applying a range of digital marketing tools to help sell your products and services can have huge benefits to your business – particularly if you operate across the manufacturing, engineering, automotive, energy, technology and life science sectors.

The pandemic was a key accelerator for businesses who, often overnight, had to change their strategies and implement new digital marketing approaches in order to reach customers and showcase products and services.

Our blog highlights the wide range of digital tools that are available and provides tips on applying these tools as part of your wider business, sales and marketing strategies.


We’ve reopened our Event Space
@ Horizon Works

Over the past couple of years, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we made the decision not to host or organise any external events in our bespoke event space, which is part of our headquarters in Cramlington, Northumberland.

We’re excited to announce that it has now been reopened and we will be organising events in our event space once again. In addition, we’ll be offering the space out to our clients and business contacts/ partners for hire – with the first partner event taking place in September.

Our event space is perfect for a range of different business events, from seminars, strategy away days and networking events to product launches, workshops and presentations. It features The Hub, The Snug, a Boardroom and a 48-seat theatre style Seminar Room – all with high quality facilities, free Wi-Fi and large presentation screens. In addition we have a limited number of hot desking opportunities in our office space which include exclusive access to our event space.

Ideally situated close to the A19 and A1 road links on the outskirts of Cramlington, and 15 minutes drive from Newcastle Airport, our space offers a convenient and comfortable environment with the added benefit of free parking. Contact us if you are interested in hiring our event space or hot desking!
