A look back to the DLEP Conference 2019

DLEP Conference 2019

Dorset LEP would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your attendance and sharing your views during our Business Conference on 24th May at Bournemouth University.

We really hope that you enjoyed the event and found it as useful as we did. For those of you that didn't get a chance to attend, this page hosts the materials used on the day.

Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)’s annual conference also gave an update about development of its Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) during the event at Bournemouth University. Delegates also learned about exciting proposals to capitalise on the county’s rich potential for aquaculture.

Other highlights included an update about the Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Cultural Enquiry to shape a long term vision for the area and the re-launch of LEP’s Dorset Ambassadors scheme to champion the county.

Jim Stewart, Chair of Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “If we want Government to invest in Dorset, they have to know that we are an ambitious county.

“We have an aim over the next 20 years to double the size of the economy, taking us up to £36bn in terms of productivity and output and creating 80,000 jobs.

“We want a thriving local economy that is sustainable, innovative and inclusive.”

Dorset LEP is leading on the production of a Local Industrial Strategy that will capitalise on the county’s unique qualities to realise its economic potential.

We invite you take a look at the materials below, and please take part in our post-event questionnaire!
