South West and national businesses are invited to take part in Devon’s largest annual event – the Devon County Show on May 18, 19 and 20. 

Show Secretary Ollie Allen said: “The Show has made extra trade stand space available this year because of demand and, so very unusually, we are in a position to accept some last minute applications.” 

The 122nd Show offers a footfall of more than 90,000, several miles of avenues and a trade stand mix of large companies and small businesses. 

“We especially champion local businesses and artisans - it’s what we’re all about but it is also a great opportunity for national companies to promote their wares to the people of Devon and beyond.”

added Ollie. “The last research into the economic impact of the Show put our contribution at more than £10 million and we want to make that potential available to more.” 

The County Show is one of the South West’s most impressive rural shop windows, showcasing hand-reared livestock, the finest food and drink and rural living at its most vibrant all in a fun-packed day. 

Visitors will include Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex, who is the Devon County Agricultural Association President and will be at the Show for two days.  The Countess is a keen supporter of British agriculture in general and agricultural shows in particular.  

Businesses interested taking part should contract the Show’s trade stand co-ordinator - Kayleigh Burn on 01392 353706 or
