About The Venue

The Kent Event Centre is situated in the city of Kent, UK. It was founded in 1991 at the Kent Showground to provide a location for the Kent County Show. A show which continues to be hosted every year in addition to over 40 other shows. Some of these shows include the Antiques and Collectors Fair, the Kent Wellness Festival, The Wedding Experience. The Kent Garden Show as well as the Festival of Bees is also among the shows which are hosted at this location.

The Kent Event Centre is maintained and rented by the Kent Agricultural Society. The organization donates all profits from the venue and events hosted to projects focused on improving the agriculture, rural crafts, and horticulture of Kent. The Event Centre consists of 7000 m2 of indoor and 200 acres of outdoor space. Said available space is divided into 9 meeting areas, including a large outdoor space. This allows the venue to be able to accommodate business events of various forms such as exhibitions, conferences, expos, and others. Besides the large available space, the Kent Event Centre has a large parking space capable of holding 30000 cars. The venue furthermore is a short drive from both Gatwick Airport and Maidstone East Railway which makes reaching the location less challenging.
