As the summer draws to a close, the glamping season continues … and it’s time for the annual Glamping Show at the NAEC, Stoneleigh Park, Birmingham.

This year’s dates are 21st, 22nd and 23rd September, and Wigwam® Holidays will be there on Stand 56.

Glamping is as glamping does: glamorous camping allows home comforts yet the ability to enjoy the great outdoors.

This year’s show includes a number of exhibitors covering all aspects of glamping, so if you’re considering setting up your own glamping business, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

This year’s three-day event includes advice on start-ups; digital marketing; green glamping and tourism quality benchmarks, to name but a few of the subjects.

Wigwam® Holidays has attended the show for three years, yet has been at the forefront of glamping for nearly a quarter of a century.

With over 80 sites across the UK, Wigwam® Holidays has developed not only their state-of-the-art cabins, which are built right here in the UK; they have also worked tirelessly to create a successful business Franchise model for site owners.

So … you have some land … what type of accommodation do you go for? The trendy shepherd’s hut? The quirky geo-dome? The extravagant air stream trailer?

And choosing which type of glamping that’s right for your business is just the start!

Once you’ve got your tent or hut, what about the infrastructure? Planning? Bookings? Marketing? The list goes on … and on. You will encounter aspects of the business you’ve never even considered!

They key thing is, the Glamping Show is one of the few events of its type that is dedicated to this lucrative business phenomenon.

It’s a one-stop shop for getting your glamping business up and running.
