British dome manufacturer TruDomes has forged a distribution partnership with Glamping Japan Co., Ltd., establishing a new sales network in East Asia.
As the exclusive supplier in Japan, Tokyo-based Glamping Japan will utilize its strong position in the Japanese glamping market to sell TruDomes’ range of all-season geodesic domes. These domes are known for their high-quality manufacturing, including frames made from aircraft-grade aluminum.
Glamping Japan offers comprehensive glamping solutions, providing services such as planning and consulting, product development, site operation, and marketing.
TruDomes Director, Kelda Bassett, said, “TruDomes’ partnership with Glamping Japan is another exciting milestone in the global expansion of our business. Glamping Japan has become known as a pioneering company in Japan’s glamping market, with a passion to spread the culture and history of glamping in an authentic way. They have the expertise, reputation and resources to promote our award-winning range of domes and enable us to build a strong presence in this region.”
Glamping Japan CEO, Hiroshi Iwai, said, “Glamping Japan believe in providing glamping accommodation which stands the test of time and offers year-round performance for our clients – TruDomes provide those attributes in abundance with dome structures which are designed and manufactured for durability in the most extreme conditions. TruDomes offer another point of difference with a wide range of optional extras including enhanced insulation and openable portholes. They even offer a pet porthole, one of many bespoke features which reflect their all-encompassing attention to detail. We are confident that the Japanese market will respond very positively to TruDomes’ innovation and ability to personalise each dome.”
The partnership with Glamping Japan aligns with TruDomes’ growth strategy targeting markets worldwide. Their UK headquarters and manufacturing facility are in Nuneaton, and the company expanded into North America in 2022 with a US office in Utah and a warehouse in Salt Lake City, stocked with a range of domes ready for distribution across the continent. TruDomes has also expanded its business throughout continental Europe.
For glamping business owners, this partnership signifies an opportunity to access innovative and durable accommodation solutions, catering to the growing demand for unique and sustainable outdoor experiences. The geodesic domes manufactured by TruDomes offer a versatile option, adaptable to various climates and terrains, which can be an appealing selling point for businesses looking to attract a diverse clientele.
In addition, the collaboration between TruDomes and Glamping Japan emphasizes the increasing globalization of the glamping industry. As more companies form partnerships across borders, the market is expected to witness further growth and innovation. Integrating international expertise and resources can benefit glamping business owners by offering a broader range of high-quality products and services, ultimately enhancing the overall guest experience.
