Trade Fairs & Exhibitions

Our range of undercover spaces are ideal for stand-based fairs, shows and exhibitions and can be hired individually or jointly. Because our facilities are set in 150 acres of grounds there’s no need to set a limit on the size of your event, it can be as big or as small as you wish. Your event can be indoor, outdoor or both, with total space available of 8,500m².

For smaller exhibitions the Norfolk Pavilion offers 1,100m2 of five flexible spaces on two floors that can be used on their own or in conjunction with another. With integrated bar and catering facilities, the light and airy Ardingly Room (462m²) and Balcombe Room (336m²) in the Norfolk Pavilion present a welcoming environment for your visitors. For larger scale events we have the 1,150m² Queen’s Jubilee Hall with internal toilets and kitchen facilities, the very spacious 3,300m² Abergavenny Building, the 495m2 Stockman’s Building and two further covered buildings.

With free parking for over 6,000 vehicles and plenty of on-site catering facilities your visitors will enjoy a great day out.


International Antiques and Collectors Fairs

“We have been holding one of Europe’s leading antiques fairs at the South of England Event Centre for many years now and the event just keeps going from strength to strength. The venue offers everything we need to accommodate over 1,500 undercover and outdoor stands. The facilities are of the highest standard and all the staff are so helpful and professional that it makes organising such a huge event a real pleasure.”

Rachel Everett, International Antiques and Collectors Fairs

BPEX Roadshow

“The South of England Event Centre has sufficient space to enable us to process and judge hundreds of product entries from butchers in the area, plus it also provides us with the perfect backdrop to host the awards. The central location makes it easy for butchers to get to and we have entries from right across the South East – from Berkshire to Bognor – as a result!”
