Visit Kent is the official destination management organisation for the Garden of England. In 2019, we helped to attract an estimated 65 million visitors to Kent and ensured that the county was the UK's third most visited destination outside of London for foreign visitors. Not surprising, when you consider that we are the only county with a High-Speed Rail service providing excellent connectivity to London, the rest of the UK and Europe. Kent also has a rich heritage, areas of outstanding natural beauty and its diversity offers an unrivalled lifestyle to suit everyone.
The pandemic has impacted our visitor economy of course but it’s recovering and growing quickly again – well above national trends. In addition, many businesses are moving to Kent or starting up, bringing with them demand for corporate nights, meetings and events. This is why we work closely with colleagues at Locate in Kent who help and support businesses to set up and expand in the county. To date, they have helped thousands of companies to realise their ambitions.
Come and talk to the Visit Kent and Locate in Kent teams about our latest hotel accommodation research, current operating statistics, available sites and how to connect with the right partners and suppliers. We can also provide funding advice, help with property searches and development plans, introductions to professionals that will get your operations up and running quickly, connections to local and global business networks and access to cutting-edge academic knowledge.
Come and be part of the Kent success story.
