The interest in having a pop-up glampground in your region is quickly growing and service providers for this unique offering are few, and far away. Life inTents can help you to successfully start an event glamping business right out of your own home.
What is the business model?
This is an event business that primary caters to backyard birthdays and off-grid wedding and festival clients that would like the option for guests to sleep onsite for a couple of nights - typically in a beautiful and remote location. This is where you come in.
You travel to the event venue location and set-up spacious and beautiful canvas bell tents and furnish them with beds, lights, chairs and linens. Once the event is over, you’ll remove the furnishings and take down the tents and accept numerous gushing compliments about the fabulous experience that you created.
What does it take to be successful?
Amazing customer service
You agonize over the small details
Interest in interior design (or at least at least the ability to fake it)
Love of life, people and the outdoors
Space to store your equipment
What will you need to invest in?
Bell tents (3-8 is a good number to start out with)
- Beds, linens, rugs, lanterns, and a few other comforts.
Storage and organization
- Racks and containers - Storage unit or warehouse
- A truck or van with towing capacity (or renting as needed)
