We’re expecting glamping operators to have a good run as the economy opens up and Americans continue to deal with the Covid-10 pandemic these next couple of years. Why? Glamping provides physical distancing, natural ventilation, plenty of sunlight, its so different in a way that young travelers are seeking these days.
Glamping is in the early days of transition from a thoroughly mom-and-pop industry, to an accommodations sector that is beginning to see national operators. We expect this trend to continue as consumers continue to enjoy the unique settings that are available through these national operators, along with the implied operating standards of a national company.
Here are some of the new breed of glamping industry players:
