Glamping Business Workshops

Throughout 2017, Kate is pioneering a world first – a series of glamping business workshops, sharing her expertise

with companies and individuals who are interested in starting a glamping business.

Carefully selected guest co-presenters who are already running successful glamping businesses

will also share their experiences, the pitfalls, and inside tips.

Our mission: to provide impartial, pragmatic knowledge for those interested in starting a glamping business.


There’s a lot going on in the glamping industry right now, it’s developing at a rate of knots with increasing guest expectations, new structures, business models, and dedicated services entering the market. It’s an exciting time, but it can be a tricky labyrinth to navigate as not all ‘glamping glitter’ is gold. There are many variables to consider, we want to help you get it right.

These glamping business workshops will give you the information, guidance and tools to help you create your own successful enterprise – and save you making mistakes already experienced by others. We’ve called them ‘workshops’ rather than seminars because they are practical as well as informative, as such numbers are limited to facilitate time for discussion and questions.

Feedback From Previous Workshops:


“driving home I had my ‘eureka’ moment regarding my U.S.P, I also now have a name which has driven me mad for the last 2 years and I really think that was down to your workshop and seminars. I am now chomping at the bit and have to quickly get all these ideas down. Thank you Kate for all your help, positivity and enthusiasm”

“really helpful in so many ways, among other things it’s got us thinking about our mouse and cheese!”

“I arrived with hopes and dreams but no clue how to get it going – left with a clearer view of how to start and shape my glamping, which I didn’t think was possible in an hour.”

“put me firmly on track, can’t wait for the full day workshop in October, going by today I’m pretty sure I’ll leave with a good chunk of my business plan! many thanks, it was brilliant’
