What some of our sponsors are saying

“We have enjoyed a long and successful involvement with Devon County Show.  It gives us a great opportunity to show our support for the agricultural community in Devon and to meet and entertain our clients and friends old and new.” 

 

 

 

"Southernhay House is a happy sponsor of the Devon County Show and has been so for the last five years.  There’s literally no other county event like it. This is not a normal sponsorship relationship; as a central Exeter hotel, we are proud to host the annual press event for the Show but it’s more than that. Each year, the Show gives us a ringside seat at the best and most traditional spectacle in Devon. Well organised, with integrity and great humour, sponsorship of our County Show is a chance to get involved like no other.” 

 

“Coastal Recycling is proud to have been involved with the Devon County Show for several years as a provider of services and as a sponsor. The Show provides us with the perfect platform to showcase
our services and to meet existing, old and potential new customers.   
                                             With an average of 91,000 visitors over three days our sponsorship   
                                             has proven to be a very cost effective way of promoting our brand     
                                             and services. Sponsorship is not just visual, it brings with it many       
                                             opportunities to network with and entertain existing and potential       
                                             customers in a warm, friendly and family-orientated environment.”
