LMR was invited, within a mix of key influencers and local businesses, to promote the excellent things already happening in Swale and the very significant opportunities for investment and regeneration the borough has to offer. The conference discussed the funding that was available to local business with the local council giving an insight into their plans to regenerate the area. There were a number of themed workshops and exhibitors.
The Keynote speakers were, the Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP, Minister for Business and Enterprise, and Lord Digby Jones.
Lord Jones was knighted for his services to business in 2005 and in 2007 was appointed Minister of State for UK Trade and Investment. He is well known for his candid up-front attitude in his many media appearances.
