First US Glamping Summit Success

The team behind The Glamping Show and International Glamping Business is thrilled with the response to the first US Global Glamping Summit in Denver, Colorado which took place at the end of April. The event was organised in association with Glamping Hub – the largest glamping online booking resource in the US.

The event was sold out and took place over two days. Keynote speakers included Sarah Dusek co-founder of Under Canvas – one of the biggest glamping groups in the US and Peter Mack, Founder and CEO of Collective Retreats – incredible tented camps in some of the most beautiful locations, including California, Colorado, Yellowstone and Governors Island, New York. They were joined by an array of speakers from all over the Continent and beyond who kept delegates enthralled over two days.

Such was the success of the inaugural event, that Swan Events and Glamping Hub has now announced a second US Summit, which will take place in California later this year. The exact dates are yet to be finalised, but it is believed that this event will incorporate an outdoor space in order to allow for accommodation to be exhibited. In addition, an event in New York State is tabled, as well as a return visit to Denver in April 2019.

“This is just the beginning, we are on the cusp of a huge revolution as glamping becomes more widely recognised and popular in the US,” said Ruben Martinez of Glamping Hub at the event. A full report on the Denver Summit will appear in the May issue of International Glamping Business Magazine, due to be published later this week.
