Recognising automotive excellence

The North East Automotive Alliance Annual Awards dinner will be held on Friday 21 February 2020 at the Roker Hotel, Sunderland. Join us to celebrate automotive excellence in the North East of England, with the added bonus of excellent networking opportunities!

Now in its third year, the awards which are sponsored by MAKE It Sunderland, are designed to recognise some of the brightest talent and outstanding achievements of companies shaping the North East automotive industry.

Donations will be awarded to schools and school engagement programmes to help raise awareness of the importance of STEM and the attractiveness of a career within the automotive sector. The NEAA awards are supported by some of the region’s most dynamic, forward-looking and successful automotive companies and to date, have donated £33,000 which has gone towards supporting our future talent.

These automotive awards present an excellent opportunity for companies and individuals to be publicly recognised and rewarded for their achievements.


Keynote Speaker

In a further boost to the awards evening, guests will be joined by Mike Hawes, Chief Executive at The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) who will deliver the keynote address. SMMT is the trade association for the United Kingdom motor industry and represents 800 automotive companies.
