Moving away from traditional tourist accommodation

Holiday Park Innovation Show blog post 2 Holiday Park Innovation Show blog post 4

Holiday parks now need to try and keep ahead of the pack when it comes to their accommodation offerings. Diversifying your accommodation by investing in innovative spaces like lodges, pods, chalets or even yurts is a great way to attract more guests to your holiday park or resort, whilst giving existing customers a reason to return.

The idea of glamping is growing in popularity and the modern day glamper is looking for the most avant-garde places to set up camp for a truly unforgettable experience that is both practical and luxurious. This year's Holiday Park and Resort Innovation show includes some of the industry's top speakers such as Clear Sky's owner Mark Scott, who will be giving advice on how to break into the world of 21st century glamping.

Another way the leading holiday parks and resorts are diversifying is by offering accessible accommodation and adapting their parks to be more inclusive to everyone. Tom Yendell, Chairman of Trustees at Flat Spaces Foundation, will be talking through his company’s concept; to erect accessible holiday accommodation equipped with all the facilities needed by people with disabilities.

Complimenting the advice and guidance from the industry experts are this year's unique range of exhibitors, who will be bringing their latest strucutres and designs to help owners and managers of the UK's holiday park scene transform their accommodation offering. From Willerby Innovations' one-of-a-kind off-site modular buildings to the stunning and unique pods created by Future Rooms, this year's show is set to be the most innovative yet.

Diversifying from traditional tourist accommodation is the latest trend with those looking to add something new, exciting and alluring to their existing business. The Holiday Park & Resort Innovation show has been designed to put the most cutting-edge products and services in the tourism and leisure sector under one roof in order to create a one-stop marketplace designed for the owners and managers of the most ambitious holiday parks, caravan parks, glamping sites and resorts to help them grow and develop their business.

Come to the Birmingham NEC on the 8th and 9th of November to be able to meet with Tom Yendell, Mark Scott, and the rest of the speakers at the event, as well as the most innovative alternative accommodation providers in the industry.
