Locate in Kent - the county’s investment promotion agency

Location, Location, Location

Brief

  • To promote Kent as a business location.
  • Maxim is tasked with highlighting the county’s commercial opportunities presented by its connectivity to London and mainland Europe through HS1, the ports and airports, alongside the county’s cost-effective and modern property offering and work-life balance.

Results and hightlights

  • Maxim has successfully promoted Locate in Kent’s involvement in securing new businesses and jobs for the county, as well as highlighting its work in helping to safeguard employment opportunities, via media coverage and interviews.
  • Key projects to date have included promoting the annual Kent Property Market Report, announcing the results of a major research project into Kent as a business location. Maxim has also managed an editorial roundtable with senior representatives from the county’s burgeoning renewables sector.
  • Locate in Kent has - through Maxim’s work - engaged with the media and commented on major issues influencing the attractiveness of the county as a home for business, including Enterprise Zone at Discovery Park and the availability of millions of pounds for business support through the Regional Growth Fund in east Kent, west Kent and the Thames Gateway.
  • Kent will inevitably remain in the spotlight as the government, its agencies and work of the county and local authorities, alongside the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, seek to drive economic development and regeneration.
