"In the past decade Visit Kent has been a dynamic DMO; proactively engaging local public and private stakeholders and providing leadership for the sector within Kent. Nationally, the organisation has worked in partnership with VisitEngland and other destinations to collectively grow England's visitor economy by actively supporting (and leading parts of) the Strategic Framework for Tourism in England."

James Berresford, Former Chief Executive, VisitEngland

"If Government looked closely at Visit Kent it could be a good template for the country. We are very lucky here and we have not had a lot of public money invested. Other areas all compete with each other. In Kent we are all working together."

Duncan Leslie, Hever Castle

"Visit Kent campaigns are set to deliver a great return on investment for both public and private sector stakeholders. The county should be proud and shout loud - Kent is the Garden of England for all ages and for all tastes. And it's yours!"

Juliana Delaney, Continuum Group

"Kent and Pas-de-Calais have been partners in sustainable European projects for nearly 25 years; creating links between local people, developing understanding of our cultures and boosting the tourist economy across the Transmanche region."

Diana Hounslow, Directrice, Pas-de-Calais Tourisme

"We could not do what we do without Visit Kent. We invest in them and they invest in us."

Sarah Wood, Mulberry Cottages

"Thanks to the Visit Kent team assembling a significant bid for grant aid to the EU, the massive support that the company gets from Kent's leading tourism businesses and the support we are able to lend from the public sector, Visit Kent has proved itself to be an effective and efficiently run partnership."

Barbara Cooper, Kent County Council
