Supporting innovation in tourism, food, drink and hospitality across the North of Tyne.
Visitors come from near and far to experience our region’s attractions, food, drink and hospitality, but the pandemic, cost-of-living crisis and rising energy costs have left many businesses in these critical sectors facing significant challenges.
Funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA), the HITS programme will help businesses of all sizes in Northumberland, Newcastle and North Tyneside meet these challenges by accessing and developing new ways of working through targeted expert and financial support.
The programme will also offer expert training to boost skills in the sector and invest in supply chain developments to raise awareness of local products and independent businesses with a wider audience.
To ensure you receive the most up-to-date information on the project, including exclusive event invitations, project updates, details of the business grants and industry news, you must sign up to be part of the programme.
A series of face-to-face events and webinars centred around important issues effecting business within the Tourism, Food, Drink and Hospitality sectors.
