It’s been a bumper year in the newspapers for Cool Camping. Backed by their best-selling guidebook series, including the ground-breaking Glamping Getaways title first published in 2011, Cool Camping have long been the go-to experts for the national and international press. Their industry-leading website and booking system has faired no differently this year either, arriving at The Glamping Show after an incredible few months in the limelight.
Working closely with the nation’s press, Cool Camping have, in the last six months alone, featured in every one of the UK’s leading newspapers, including The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, The Independent, The Mirror, The i, The Scotsman and many more, along with magazines and travel websites and live radio interviews, including BBC Radio 2.
“It’s been another busy year for us working with the media”, Cool Camping’s marketing manager James Warner Smith tells us. “From full length feature articles about glamping sites in France, to big, summer pull-outs in the weekend newspapers, we’ve been working closely with all of the major newspapers and magazines again in 2017”.
When it comes to their year-after-year press coverage, Cool Camping put their continued success down to the guide-book like approach they take to their website, coolcamping.com. The website now reaches over 3-million unique users every year and remains a carefully curated collection of the very best camping and glamping experiences, with the content written by their in-house travel writers. Readers and web users, it seems, along with the national press, view the Cool Camping team as the most experienced and knowledgeable experts in their field.
“From our early days writing guidebooks to today’s hugely popular website that processes thousands of bookings every year, we’ve continued to work really closely with the media to offer genuine expertise in the glamping industry”, James continues. “Whether it’s national newspapers like The Guardian and The Telegraph, or leading travel magazines like Wanderlust, we’re pleased to be able to recommend the best glamping sites on the basis of our years of experience.”
This year Cool Camping is returning to The Glamping Show to talk to glamping business owners and showcase their fully-integrated booking system. Their stand will include a number of computers where business owners can get hands on and try out the Cool Camping website, as well as testing the Cool Camping booking system which is free to use on glamping businesses’ own websites.
“We’re really excited to return to The Glamping Show again this year,” says Cool Camping founder Jonathan Knight. “Our website processed more bookings this year than ever before and we’re thrilled to be able to demonstrate the system to new businesses visiting the event for the first time”.
