“We have been arranging wedding exhibitions at The Kent Showground since April 2006 and now host three events each year at Detling ¬†…¬†without a doubt, the winning formula is the Showground Events Team, led by Allison Wallington, who work in harmony with our own team before and during the event to ensure that our exhibitors have the best possible support on the day. The level of service and customer care is unrivalled and is one of the reasons we have enjoyed the success and ongoing growth of the business to create the largest and best attended wedding show in the South East.”
