Glamping Summit USA, Announced In Aurora, Colorado For 2019


The Glamping Summit USA has been announced to support the luxury outdoor and experiential industry. Research indicates that the glamping market will grow beyond 15% between 2018-2014 and is projected to be a $1 billion business by 2024* This means it is no surprise that business owners are starting to claim their share of the growing market and seeking out expert advice, products and services to help them.

Added to this is the fact that ‘The Journal Of Outdoor Recreation And Tourism’ stated that although glamping is an area in need of academic research, it did show “stellar performance” during the 2009 financial slowdown. The same report also noted how as the industry moves forwards it needs to consider how it will respond to the growing market and attract new clientele.

To meet the needs of glamping business owners in the luxury camping and outdoor hospitality niche, The Global Glamping Summit, USA, was born. David Korse, Event Director said…

“This is the only event in the U.S. specifically for the glamping market.”

From 22-13 October 2019, the third Glamping Summit will take place at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds in Aurora, Colorado. We have attended all three events, loved every one of them and are very proud to be an Official Supporter of the Glamping Summit team.

We’re even more excited now as the next one is going to be bigger and better with exhibition space and industry education on topics developed to help business owners attract more guests and increase their profits. David said…

“The 2019 event will be larger and more comprehensive than our two previous events,”

The hub of this industry event is a conference that extends over the two days of the event to help a variety of luxury camping and glamping business owners to move forward rapidly with their ideas while avoiding costly mistakes.

“There will be inside and outside exhibit space in addition to a two-day conference presented by industry experts.”
