Case Study

Venue & Events Expo

The Kent Event Centre was proud to hold the first Venue and Events Expo Southeast, a one-day exhibition for event professionals to network and connect outside of London.

The event showcased over 100 venues and event suppliers from all over the Southeast, held a variety of talks from inspirational industry experts and networking workshops from wine tasting to building toys for gorillas!

The Clive Emson Conference Centre proved the perfect setting for the Expo’s first year. The main hall offered enough space for all exhibitors, a small restaurant and even a bar, with the adjacent Chilham, Bredhurst and Cornwallis rooms used as breakout spaces for workshops and speakers.

"Thank you to you and your team for all your help over the last few days. The event was a huge success and we are really happy."
