According to a press release, the first-of-its-kind event will take place on October 3 during The Glamping Show USA at the Arapahoe Country Fairgrounds in Aurora, Colorado.
“This is a unique opportunity for members of the AGA to pitch and present their businesses to a room full of hospitality investors, real estate groups, banks, manufacturers, and other organizations that are actively deploying capital in the travel space,” said Ruben Martinez, AGA’s founder and Executive Director.
Six applicants will be selected to give a live pitch and receive feedback on their pitches from a panel of experts. Qualified applicants will get exposure to the investment audience.
Event participants will be able to learn what investors and lenders look for in a pitch. In addition, they will have the chance to connect with investors, operators, manufacturers, and strategic partners in the glamping industry.
“The glamping industry globally has seen record growth that drastically accelerated during the pandemic–turning the travel space on its head with large numbers of travelers rushing to the outdoors. Therefore, there’s a lot of demand for capital investment by operators and those who are interested in entering the business. The Glamping Show USA is the perfect venue to launch The Glamping Investment Connection and connect glamping entrepreneurs with active capital options,” Martinez said.
The American Glamping Association was established to provide tools, resources, education, and a community for a rapidly expanding glamping and unique outdoor industry.
The AGA acts as a network and neutral organization with a mandate to serve anybody and everybody in the space to assist in getting everyone to their version of their finish line.
Members consist of aspiring and industry leader operators to manufacturers, investors, banks, services, and products.
The Glamping Show USA is happening on October 3-5, 2022, at the Aurora Fairgrounds in Colorado. It is the only US trade event dedicated to the glamping industry.
