MC Fireside Chats’ glamping industry-focused show is set to return for another episode next week September 14, following its successful debut last August.
According to one report, the glamping industry generated USD 2.6 billion in revenue just last year with this value projected to balloon to USD 7.1 billion by 2031.
With this anticipated continued growth of glamping, it is key for camp owners and other industry stakeholders to understand how the industry is shaping up. This is why MC Fireside Chats is bringing some of the leading voices in the glamping industry together next week for a lively discussion on the trends, challenges, and opportunities facing the industry today.
The show will feature American Glamping Association Founder Ruben Martinez, Outside Capital Founder and Managing Principal David Smith, and The Fields of Michigan Founder and CEO Irene Wood. They will be joined by special guests The Glamping Show USA’s David Korse, and BaseGlamp ReVivify owners Mark Kirkendall and Kyle Koch.
Next week’s episode of MC Fireside Chats will be sponsored by Let’s Camp, a campground reservation service that enables campers from all over North America to find new campgrounds and plan their trips in one easy-to-use platform.
