The £150k campsite facility, which launched this week, will offer corporate groups a rural alternative to the venue’s hotel accommodation, as well as a range of teambuilding and outdoor activities, including archery, shooting, surf simulating, human table football and bungee running.

Alison Wallington, manager, Kent Event Centre, said: "We’re really excited to be offering something quite unique. Giving the average residential conference a festival type of feel is something that we feel would be a great way to shake-up the routine conference, offering a greater variety to the event itinerary.

"Kent Event Centre gives delegates the perfect opportunity to switch off from the everyday corporate environment and enjoy the fresh air and scenery of rural Kent.

"The new site will be the perfect add-on for the teambuilding packages we offer or for conferences with a teambuilding aspect as it gives delegates the perfect opportunity to bond with fellow colleagues."

The new development follows the £2.4m investment Kent Event Centre made last year, which included the new Maidstone Exhibition Hall.
