The biggest show yet? Peter Rusbridge on what’s in store at this year’s Glamping Show.
The Glamping Show remains the only dedicated event in the glamping sector, acting as a hub for people across the UK (and even further) to get together and elevate the industry we all know and love.
It’s the most comprehensive one-stop-shop to discover the latest products and trends, all whilst networking with like-minded people. Be inspired by our community of suppliers, experts and experienced business owners to find solutions to any challenge and discover the ideas that will take your business to the next level.
Now that we’re officially face-to-face again, you will have the unique opportunity to meet the people behind the brand and see their products for yourself. These are the people that will assist in the future of your business, so to put it simply, try before you buy!
Find a huge range of every type of structure from pods to tipis, shepherd huts to safari tents, geodesic domes to yurts, bell tents to converted containers, and tiny homes to bespoke treehouses. There will also be brand new companies with brand new structures, and innovations from returning exhibitors who continue to develop their products every year.
TGS has continued to grow since its launch in 2015 and, quite simply, we ran out of space at the existing arena. To continue to improve the show we have moved to a new, bigger and better spot at the NAEC Stoneleigh with double the space.
And, for the first time ever, we’re offering VIP Packages available for visitors to purchase, including afternoon tea, a two-course lunch and overnight camping at the NAEC!
Seminars are back
We are so pleased to announce the return of the seminar program. In a new, specially built structure, we will host a range of sessions covering every aspect of the glamping business. This is not one to miss, with some of our sector’s biggest names in one room. Extended panel sessions will see experts discuss the major industry issues of the day and take a look into the future.
We hope you’ll join us in September – whether you’re seeking a fresh new look for your existing business or still have that faint “what if?” in the back of your mind. There’s no other place to find the most extensive collection of structures, products, accessories and services anywhere in the UK.
