International Endeavors Corporation (IEC) has entered the wildly popular and fast-growing global “glamping” market with the opening of its first eco-friendly, social distancing glamping resort located in California’s Temecula Valley Wine Country (www.GlampingTemecula.com). IEC’s move into the industry is well-timed as more people in the U.S., Canada, and around the world are relishing the outdoors and camping, and more specifically, discovering glamping, according to a press release.
IEC began its push into the glamping arena when the company entered into a partnership agreement with Eco-Camps (www.Eco-Camps.com). According to the release, the move was none too soon as according to Grand View Research, the size of the global glamping market, which was valued at $2.1 billion just two years ago, is growing exponentially and is expected to more than double to $4.8 billion by 2025 as the industry enjoys ever-expanding demographics.
The company’s initial glamping resort, opened under the partnership with Eco-Camps, is a rural resort nestled on six acres of IEC-owned real estate in the Temecula Valley Wine Country and features off-the-grid canvas cottages and micro-cabins, each with full bathrooms, showers, and eco-friendly amenities. The property is comprised of both agricultural land and existing commercial structures in a prime Southern California location with easy access to Old Town Temecula and several popular wineries. Because of the resort’s size and location, and Eco-Camp’s intellectual property, design, and operational methods, guests are able to enjoy a safe, social distancing travel experience during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, noted the release.
Additionally, the company plans to grow its operations in Temecula with further development of the property, including increasing the resort’s glamping accommodations so even more travelers can enjoy the retreat and the creation of a small retail center that will include an outdoor café/bar and tasting room.
IEC’s footprint in the global glamping industry will expand through its partnership with Eco-Camps, a company that is building and offering eco-friendly resorts and accommodations all over the world. Eco-Camps, which also owns Eco Resorts of the World, a community of eco-friendly resorts and accommodations, is a provider of off-the-grid, eco-friendly, social distancing glamping. Under the partnership, IEC and Eco-Camps have multi-year contracts for the operations and development of glamping properties within North America, including; Santa Barbara, Calif., Caldwell, Idaho, Cooperstown, N.Y., and Coachella Valley, Calif.
Additionally, through a long-term multi-year partnership with the luxury hotel company, Karma Group (www.karmagroup.com), the company is opening a 10-unit glamping resort within the grounds of a luxury chateau near the Medieval walled town of Carcassonne, France.
