This week, November 27-28, the Global Glamping Summit at the Westin Long Beach, CA will bring together hospitality owners and operators from around the world with diverse backgrounds.
“Glamping”, a term coined to describe “glamorous camping”, has become increasingly popular the last few years and is a large part of the wellness travel market, which is booming. Independent research presented in the 2018 Global Wellness Economy Monitor stated: “The $639 billion wellness travel market’s annual growth rate of 6.5% from 2015-2017 is more than double the growth rate for tourism overall (3.2%)”. Interest in active outdoor-centered vacations is fueled by the modern traveler who is constantly seeking unique experiential getaways.
Glamping is providing additional revenue for a range of businesses such as hotels, wineries, spas, festivals, ranches, ski resorts, activity parks, and traditional campsites. The Global Glamping Summit features speakers and exhibits specially curated to bring together operators of all these types of businesses so they can:
SOLVE how to develop a unique business value proposition that differentiates a destination from its competition. Work together to support each other as a community and unravel problems facing the whole hospitality industry. How does the industry respond to natural disasters? Are there lessons that can be drawn from other areas of hospitality?
CONNECT with likeminded people who share the same concerns and collaborate on hospitality solutions. Embrace support from people who have experience in a variety of tourism areas.
Be INSPIRED to create an enhanced vision for luxury travelers to see beyond current offerings.
LEARN about innovative solutions, products, exclusive discounts, and current industry tips.
The Global Glamping Summit November 27-28 agenda will be split into two channels to satisfy the distinct needs of both those established and new to glamping.
Glamping is still a budding industry without clear standardization in need of its own association in the U.S. The Global Glamping Summit is thrilled to announce that the American Glamping Association is launching at the Summit this week.
In addition to exclusive supplier offers on innovative products, Global Glamping Summit tickets include access to an impressive speaker line up of industry pioneers who will help the hospitality industry unite.
