The North East’s biggest engineering celebration is returning to the Beacon of Light this autumn.
Following the phenomenal success of the 2018 Bring It On North East event, RTC North and Foundation of Light are delighted to announce this year’s exhibition will take place on the 9th and 10th October.
The event is a winning combination of exciting interactive workshops and exhibits, careers information and a live show, welcoming over 80 businesses and 2,500 pupils from across the region through the doors of Sunderland’s most innovative sports and education facility.
Bring It On is the only event of its kind in the North East aiming to provide a grand arena for schools and industry to engage with each other, collaborate and build a passionate community feel around Engineering and the fantastic career opportunities it offers.
Hosting events such as The Bring It On North East exhibition is exactly why the Beacon was built: to engage and educate thousands of young people in activities which will inspire them to achieve.
We are delighted RTC North have once again chosen the Beacon of Light as the venue for this year’s exhibition and can’t wait for October.

Carol Harrison, Bring It On Project Manager said: “Bring It On has established itself as the unique opportunity in the North East for both local children to interact and learn from real-life engineering professionals, and businesses to showcase the very best of their services and to inspire the engineers of tomorrow.
“I’d implore anyone who has yet to experience this event to get in touch!”
In addition to the main exhibition, which will exclusively feature North East Engineering companies, Bring It On will host the North East Regional Heat of the ‘Big Bang’ a national competition which aims, amongst other things, to build transferable skills by providing opportunities to take part in project-based activity.
The Beacon of Light is the North East’s newest sports, education and events venue, housing a versatile indoor arena which can host national sporting competitions and exhibitions as well as a suite of classrooms, offices and informal learning spaces.
