Invest Newcastle has confirmed their involvement with the UK’s Real Estate Investment &

strengths on a national and international stage, with a range of regional sponsors from across the
supply chain.

Following a successful inaugural event in 2022, which saw Invest Newcastle lead a 100-strong
delegation to Leeds, UKREiiF is expected to grow with additional stages and content, and over 6,000
delegates predicted to attend the event. Invest Newcastle has confirmed they will be taking their
own pavilion in the Investment Zone, where they will deliver three-days’ worth of content and

Speaking of their involvement, Jennifer Hartley, Director of Invest Newcastle, said: “There isn’t a
more opportune time for our region to come together as one voice to spotlight our sector strengths
on a national stage.

“UKREiiF was a great success story for Newcastle last year, it was not only invaluable to collaborate
and learn from other UK cities and regions, but it was a brilliant platform for our regional sponsors to
showcase their expertise and the opportunities in the North East.

“Our plans for next year are just underway, and we are building an exciting programme of events
which will be even bigger and better than last year’s, exploring UKREiiF’s themes of levelling up,
sustainability and inclusivity. To find out about what our region has to offer, you will be able to find
us at pavilion 19.”

Keith Griffiths, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of UKREiiF, said: “We’re thrilled to be working
alongside Invest Newcastle on delivering their own pavilion at the UKREiiF event this year.
“We have seen the exponential growth of the event since May, and we look forward to giving a
platform for an organisation such as Invest Newcastle to showcase their projects and share insight
into investment and development plans to a collection of investors, developers, end-users, and local
authorities. We can’t wait to see what Newcastle has in store for 2023!”

Led by property events company Built Environment Networking and supported by some of the
biggest UK property and infrastructure companies, the annual UKREiiF event will be held in Leeds on
16-18 May 2023. The forum will attract inward investment, generate economic growth and drive a
