BRINGING A WORLD STAGE TO THE NORTH EAST
Sage’s partnership with ASM Global will deliver a community and customer
focused international arena and convention centre in the heart of Newcastle and Gateshead.
The partnership will commit to providing access, support and promotion to all businesses and communities across the North East and Sage customers around the world.
A central resource for small to medium businesses which will not only offer co-working facilities but will be shaped by local small businesses – a venue designed by the people, for the people.
WE’RE INSPIRED BY THE NEXT GENERATION
We’re committed to working with local education providers to offer young people work experience and apprenticeships so that the next generation of talented workers don’t have to leave the region behind to fulfil their dreams.
We’re backing music and performance organisations in the region working with local bands and artists who could be our future headliners.
We’re pioneering special access passes to people on low incomes and from a disadvantaged background who might otherwise miss out on events.
We’re knocking down barriers to business success, supporting companies and entrepreneurs from across the region with work space options and opportunities to showcase their products and services to a global audience.
WE’RE GIVING BACK
A place for the world to gather, The Sage offers genuine access for all with an approach that puts the community first, right from the start.
We are committed to supporting local charities and initiatives to
volunteering in community projects in and around the NewcastleGateshead area.
WE’RE THINKING ABOUT TOMORROW
The Sage will care for the planet as much as its many audiences and will be built with climate-conscious engineering in mind.
In addition the development will be supplied with heat and power from the Gateshead District Energy Scheme, fed by urban solar parks and naturally heated mine water extracted from ancient mine workings 150 metres below the site – powering the future with the help of the past.
Electric vehicle charging points will be available on site and The Sage’s superb location in the heart of the Gateshead and Newcastle quayside means major transport links are only a short walk away.
The site will have an array of new planting and creatively landscaped green spaces to boost biodiversity and enhance the iconic river views, creating a place where eco and entertainment meet.
WE’RE PROVIDING A PLATFORM FOR GROWTH
We’re committing to providing each and every business or individual the opportunity to showcase their work, services, talents or products on our global stage right here at The Sage.
With plans in development to serve our communities with
co-working or flexible work spaces, advertising forums,
meeting rooms with riverfront views, business networking hubs
and providing opportunities for growth to each and every one
of our Sage communities – we’re putting you and your needs
at the heart of everything we do.
