WorkCast's new headquarters at the Northern Design Centre

WorkCast, a market-leading virtual events platform and Queen’s Award for Enterprise winner is moving to the bustling creative community at the Northern Design Centre.

WorkCast, founded in 2009, was previously based at Rainton Bridge Business Park in Houghton le Spring. They will make the move on 16 August 2021 to the Baltic Business Quarter at the centre.

WorkCast founder and CEO Stewart Kibby explains: “WorkCast has grown exponentially over the past 18 months. Our revenue is up almost 100% compared to last year and we increased our headcount significantly. As a business, we needed to find the right solution for the next period of our evolution.

“Gateshead is fast becoming the first real tech hub in the North East and WorkCast is excited to be a part of that future. This location and the great facilities will allow WorkCast to engage with the wider technical community in the North East, as well as increase our visibility as a business across the country.”

The Northern Design Centre is the newest icon on the Newcastle/Gateshead skyline and has quickly become the premier location for creative and technology businesses in the North East of England. The move is being hailed as the next phase in WorkCast’s continued evolution. The virtual events company is coming off a year of record growth, with over £5 million in revenue for the 2021 financial year.
