The Glamping Show Team is very excited to be launching a new service this year called Meet The Experts!
This new show service is being kindly sponsored by
Success Matters is the business consultancy that helps you earn a living doing what you love through business coaching, workshops seminars and events for business owners.
In addition to having the opportunity to attend a vast range of seminars at The Glamping Show, you can now book an individual 20 minute mini-meeting with one of our industry experts, to pick their brains about your own specific issues and get some top on-the-spot confidential advice.
These mini-meetings will take place on the Thursday and Friday of the show, with limited morning and afternoon time slots available with each of our experts. The meetings are expected to be very popular, so to ensure you get to meet with the expert you wish to speak to pre-book your time-slot in advance now via the Success Matters’ Eventbrite booking system by clicking on the links below.
There is a small charge of a £10 donation, going to (less the Eventbrite transaction charge) our chosen charity; The Family Holiday Association. The Family Holiday Association is the only national charity dedicated to providing breaks and day trips for families struggling with some of the toughest challenges life can bring.
