Africa’s first Glamping Expo slated for October in Johannesburg

DURBAN – South Africa will host Africa’s first glamping event in October 2024. Glamping Expo 2024 is a unique platform for businesses along the whole glamping value chain. These include suppliers, glamping operators, innovators, manufacturers, architects, insurers, investors, government agencies and many others.

Glamping Expo will take place at the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec between 28 – 29 October. Organizers of the event believe this is a timely intervention in this niche tourism sector that is on the rise in popularity, necessity and appeal.

“We realized the growth trajectory in the glamping sector over the past five years and this platform will be a constellation of all glamping players under one roof. They will showcase, reflect and chart the future of the glamping industry,” said Dave Mudzingwa, spokesperson of the Glamping Expo.

Statistics show that glamping will grow exponentially, with a forecast of almost US$6 billion to be generated globally by 2030, with an impressive 10% growth annually. 

“This projection is in tandem with more research done showing that travellers now prefer to be outdoors but still enjoying the creature comforts, glamping is satiating this market need,” Mudzingwa added.

The Glamping Expo is an annual platform for businesses across the glamping sector and support services sector. Participants will showcase their glamping innovations and products, network with industry peers, and seek potential collaborations and investments. Attendees will have access to market and research intelligence.

The Glamping Expo is designed to empower businesses in the glamping space with insights, connections, trends and innovations that drive success in the luxury outdoor accommodation sector.
