• Our Corporate Partners

About the scheme

Through our Corporate Partner scheme, Visit Kent builds mutually beneficial strategic partnerships with businesses that have links to or interest in working with the tourism industry.

By supporting our work as a not for profit organisation, our corporate investors are helping to support an industry that brings £3.4 billion to the local economy and supports over 65,000 jobs in the county. Where relevant they also actively share their expertise and knowledge with our network of leading tourism businesses.
