Industry Insights: Holiday Park and Resort Innovation Show

19: An insight into the Holiday Parks/Glamping sector

Holiday parks, holiday homes, park homes and glamping are an important part of the Caravan Industry. To get a deeper industry insight into this sector, I visited the Holiday Park and Resort Innovation show at the NEC (last week).

It’s a B2B show with over 500 exhibitors – ranging from cool glamping units and safari tents to dinosaurs (for entertainment) and robots to deliver table service or collect dirty dishes – and everything in between.

There was also an impressive number of talks passing on wisdom from professionals as well as owners of parks or other businesses in the sector.

I was delighted to see some people I knew and also make some new contacts. I recorded quick catch-up interviews with several of these people, including:

Cathy Chamberlain, MD of Barefoot Caravans

Michael Hold, Sales and Marketing Director of Adventure Leisure Vehicles, there launching his new Mooble House tiny houses.

Mark Scott, CEO of Clear Sky Safari Lodges.

Bella Brodie, editor of Holiday Living magazine.

And others…
