North Tyneside Business Forum - Fish Quay History

North Tyneside Business Forum

The Business Forum is a ‘One-Stop-Shop’. Any and all business issues can be swiftly channelled in the right direction and addressed by the appropriate person or organisation.  The Business Forum can put you straight to the heart of local business by accessing the most relevant networks, mentors and experts.
The Forum aims to support all North Tyneside companies from the smallest micro-business to the largest. Whether you’re a self-employed sole trader operating from home, or a multi-national outfit with a branch in the Borough, the Business Forum hopes to be of assistance.  You can attend networking events and make new contacts, celebrate your business success in the Forum newsletter, on the website or the annual North Tyneside Business Awards. There’s also a dedicated Business Helpline on 0191 643 6000. The North Tyneside Business Forum is only open to businesses with a current trading address in North Tyneside.

The Business Forum has a busy events programme to promote networking and business support in North Tyneside. It is also closely linked to The Business Factory which provides up to 12-hours FREE support for businesses through workshops, seminars and 1-2-1 support. All of the information on this support can be found at

The Forum wants your views to be taken into account in the forward-planning processes of local and national government - whether it’s to do with major regeneration projects or the future of the region’s road networks, you can be part of the debate.

The Forum has forged important strategic links and is managed by a private-sector management group with ongoing support from North Tyneside Council and other business groups and support organisations.
