The Swale Means Business team were one of over 200 exhibitors at yesterday’s (11 May) Business Vision Live event, returning after a two-year hiatus.

The annual event was held at Detling showground and is Kent’s largest business to business event with around 2,000 people attending for the day to network and hear from keynote speakers.

The council has a stand every year to promote the benefits of being a business located in Swale and encourage others to relocate.

Cllr Monique Bonney, cabinet member for economy at the council, said:

“We do a lot of work behind the scenes to support established and start-up businesses in Swale with our free monthly “Starting in Business” workshops which help budding entrepreneurs flesh out ideas and create comprehensive business plans.

“We also offer existing businesses the opportunity to seek specialist advice on a specific issue with one-to-ones with a business advisor, and through our live property register, we’re able to showcase the wide range of properties available to businesses looking to grow, invest and relocate.

“At the Business Vision Live event yesterday, we promoted new business space at Master’s House in Sheerness, creative space at Murston Old Church, new units on Precision Park, Eurolink and High Street Road, Hernehill. Along with the toolkit designed specifically to support businesses operating within the visitor economy sector.

“There are many benefits to being located in or visiting Swale, excellent transport links to London and Europe, competitive business rates, it’s an attractive place to visit with a large of array of coastline and countryside.”
