The Pavilion Centre replaced the former Members Pavilion and Royal Pavilion which dated back to the 1960’s. It was officially opened on the second day of the 2008 Royal Cornwall Show by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal where a plaque of Cornish granite, to commemorate the opening, had been specially made by Cornish craftsman Christopher Wearne of Frederick Wearne and Sons, based near Helston.

Since its opening The Pavilion Centre has grown in business as well as reputation. It now holds on average 150 events throughout the year.

Billed as a venue "for business and pleasure", the Pavilion Centre has been designed to meet the needs of gatherings from ten to 300 people. Its versatile design along with its modern stylish décor, means it can accommodate conferences, lectures and business meetings as well as parties, and dinner-dances and wedding receptions.

The Pavilion Centre comes under the Royal Cornwall Events Centre, along with Royal Cornwall Outdoor spaces and Royal Cornwall Exhibition Halls.
