There are just 10 days left to register for the Kent and Medway Business Summit - the traditional curtain-raiser networking event in the county.
Held annual at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus, this year the event is going entirely online.
It takes place next Friday, January 15.
The event will feature a host of high-level regional political figures and academics discussing some of the key issues impacting on the county.
In addition, there will be interactive workshops on the food and drink sector; the shape of our high streets and town centres; the creation of sustainable green infrastructure and economy; and the jobs opportunity created by the digital creative sector.
Now in its fourth year, the summit is a partnership between the university's Kent Business School, the Federation of Small Businesses, the Institute of Directors and Locate in Kent.
Dean of the Kent Business School, Professor Marian Garcia, said: “The summit was born from a round table discussion in 2017 with business leaders about the implications of Brexit. Those around the table called for a place where businesses, politicians, local government and academics could come together and build a roadmap for sustainable economic growth.
“The need for a strong direction and focus for our region has arguably never been greater which is why this summit will be one like no other.”
Tickets for the online event cost £10 and are limited to 400. To register click here.
Headline sponsor of the Summit is Kreston Reeves, with supporting sponsors British Business Bank, Southeastern Railway, Canterbury AI and Kayo Digital. The KM Media Group - publishers of this website - and KMTV are official media partners.
