Ruben Martinez, the co-founder of Glamping Hub and the founder of the American Glamping Association (AGA), joined WCM’s Outdoor Hospitality Update on Tuesday (June 7) at 3 p.m. EDT to talk about the growth of the association and the growth in the glamping industry.
Martinez noted that the association continues to work with its growing member base to assist in the development of new parks, as site demand is currently outstripping the available number of glamping sites on the market. Martinez also highlighted the investment opportunities in the glamping industry and spoke about its Glamping Investment Connection that the association will be hosting the day before The Glamping Show USA kicks off from Oct. 4-5 at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds in Aurora, Colo.
Other topics included how traditional RV parks and campgrounds can integrate glamping, how glamping park developers can work with local officials to fix any perception issues that may be slowing down the permitting process and more.
WCM’s Outdoor Hospitality Update is hosted by Ben Quiggle, editor of Woodall’s Campground Magazine (WCM), and Mike Gast, former vice president of communications at Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) and a senior writer for RVTravel.com.
The show airs every Tuesday at 3 p.m. EDT.
