Glamping in the Event Industry – The Durango Tipi

by | Jun 30, 2021

Set Your Event Business Apart with a Tipi

Glamping in the Event Industry

 If you’re keeping up with market trends, you already know the glamping is taking over the event industry! In 2020 the global industry was valued at $1.88 billion. By 2028 it’s anticipated the market will be at nearly $6 billion, with the United States projected to be the fastest-growing sector.

However, that’s not all the good news. The glamping market is divided into consumers and events, and research shows that events are the fastest-growing end-user segment in the U.S. market – anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 16% during the forecast period. The report from Market Watch goes on to say that there is a growing demand for “fancy-yet-rural” experiences for both “personal and professional events.”

Whether you’re already in the event business, or just thinking about it, now is the time to incorporate a little glamp life in your business model. If you’re already all about combining glamping and the event industry? Upgrade your existing business and step ahead of the competition just in time for the market to soar.

  Adding a tipi-style event tent, like The Durango, to your event business brings many benefits! You can:

  • Provide extra space for seating, shade, dancing and more.

  • Offer modern wedding clients unique choice and variety.

  • Extend the popular outdoor event season longer into the year.

  • Diversify your current offerings and see an influx of new clients.

The Durango

The Durango is the product of a collaboration between Jim Stout, co-founder of Stout Tent, and Dave Ellis, owner of Ellis Canvas Tents and one of the last true tent engineers in the United States. Tucked away in a small shop in Durango, CO, Jim and Dave worked long hours together poring over the final design and hand sewing hundreds of yards of U.S. sourced canvas. Across the country in Vermont, Nordic Spruce trees were harvested for the tent’s poles.

The results speak for themselves. With its buttery, tan canvas, and soft wooden poles, The Durango is as beautiful as it is practical. Leave the sides down for a gathering and event space 34′ in diameter, easily kept warm on cool nights. Or, raise the sides for a dramatic 43′ in covered space. The spruce poles are perfect for hanging lights and other decor. With the sides lifted there’s close to 1500 sq. ft of decorating space!

We’re thrilled about the newest addition to our canvas tent product line and are confident you’ll love it as much as we do.

The Durango tipi glamping event tent is so pretty you just want to look at it.
