If you’re attending the TMI Convention, we want you to enjoy Tees Valley as much as we do (even if it is only for a short time).

Here you will find some practical information about the location of the Convention –  Middlesbrough and some great places to eat and drink and things to do if you find yourself with some spare time.

The Tees Valley is located in the North East of England cushioned between County Durham and North Yorkshire. The region is made up of five towns which include Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees and Redcar & Cleveland.

We are delighted to be hosting the Tourism Management Institute Convention 2022 in Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough, located in the heart of the Tees Valley, is a town undergoing a major transformation. An area set to be designated a Mayoral Development Corporation giving the Tees Valley Mayor and Tees Valley Combined Authority further powers to transform and regenerate the town.  This will lead to rapid change, making the region even more attractive for both locals and visitors, creating a once-in-a-generation opportunity to unlock the full potential of its assets and supercharge investment in place.

These assets include Mima, an internationally recognised exemplar in contemporary museum culture; The Auxiliary Warehouse, a new hub of contemporary art production and presentation; the High Street Heritage Action Zone, reimagining the future of the high street by breathing new life into historic buildings and establishing the railway station as the most creative station in the country; and Teesside University, which works with us to host world-leading events like Animex – an international animation, VFX and video game festival – supported by creative and ambitious businesses in the industries of the future.

We’re a region at the forefront of driving investment and we look forward to showcasing this.

See you soon
