Space for your Corporate Event to succeed

Entertain staff or clients in a stunning setting

The South of England Event Centre is an inspiring location for any corporate event, business conference, AGM, meeting, training or team building day. Whether you’re looking to hire a single meeting room or to create a bespoke package of indoor and outdoor events, our unique hospitality facilities will exceed your expectations, and offer space to grow.

Supported by a professional team of highly-qualified staff, we care as much about your business event as you do, which means we’ll go above and beyond to make it a huge success.

Experienced at working with event organisers and agencies, we understand what it takes to host business events both large and small.

Set in the beautiful Sussex countryside, our centre is only 36 miles from London and 20 miles from Brighton, via the M23 and M25 motorways. With London Gatwick Airport on our doorstep and Haywards Heath railway station nearby, our venue makes a refreshing alternative to the norm for delegates and guests.

We have a range of cost-effective indoor and outdoor spaces for 10 to 50,000 guests, plus free WiFi, the latest presentation facilities, and all the support you need for a productive business event.

As a conference centre, the showground at Ardingly has always delivered a first class service. The venue is large and provides sufficient car-parking spaces. Being in the centre of Sussex - its easily accessible - no matter what direction you are coming from. The conference facilities are clean, spacious and elevated overlooking the grounds. The catering is exquisite and always served at the appropriate time. I would highly recommend this venue to those that run seminars, training days or management meetings.

Our first impressive of the room (Ardingly Room, Norfolk Pavilion) when we walked in was impressive, it was beautifully laid out. The food was excellent and there was nothing that could have been improved upon.

We have had so much positive feedback, including “the venue was great” and “the refreshments were excellent”. We can’t thank you enough for all your support – it made all the difference and I know it will lead to many more local events. This was a great start to the scheme in a fantastic setting.

I just wanted to say very many thanks to all involved with organising and catering for Mother's funeral tea. From our perspective, from set up to close, it could not have been smoother and, given the circumstances, it was lovely to know that everything was in hand so that we had nothing to worry about. We cannot think of anything that could have been improved upon and it was exactly as we had hoped for. Our guests were comfortable and relaxed and they obviously enjoyed the food - some very favourable comments were made with recommendations to others along the lines of 'you must just try.

The hire of the Abergavenny barn, Stockman’s building and outdoor space at the South of England Showground provided an excellent venue for our recent charity fund raising day that included trading stalls, family fun activities, donkey rides, sports events and a music concert. The large car park facilities and flexible use of the buildings lent themselves perfectly to our requirements. The showground staff were most helpful and obliging and we wouldn’t hesitate to use the facilities again in the future.
