Kent businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs are invited to come together with local government representatives, MPs and academics to discuss how to sustain economic growth for the county.

This year's presentations focus on transport infrastructure, attracting businesses and visitors to the Garden of England, productivity and innovation and skills development.

Organisor Floortje Hoette says: “This year we have really pushed the boat out and are delighted to offer delegates the choice of 16 different round table topics, all highly relevant to Kent.
