North East Automotive Alliance Annual Awards 2023

Continuing our mission to celebrate and champion automotive excellence, the North East Automotive Alliance Annual Awards will return in 2023, with the winners to be announced at the dinner on Thursday 23rd March at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham.

The North East Automotive Alliance Annual Awards, featuring Sunderland City Council as headline sponsor, 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 over £47,000 which has gone towards supporting our future talent.

The awards categories are:
• Geoff Ford MBE Apprentice Award, sponsored by Gateshead College
• Graduate Award, sponsored by Marelli
• Innovation and Technology Award, sponsored by Newcastle University
• Sustainability Award, sponsored by Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK)
