From army tent to total supplier for European festivals, events and weddings
It started twelve years ago with an army truck and four army tents. Together with brother Mark Leuven and two friends, Wouter Leuven started a company next to his then job. The first summer was immediately very busy, but during the fall and winter we had to be creative! We then started producing and selling tents ourselves. We then produced an entire tent camp for the Apenheul in Apeldoorn.
The focus on festivals caused a breakthrough in 2015 when we were able to devise and implement a concept for Down The Rabbit Hole by Mojo: various tents, a webshop and ticket sales. The director of Lowlands, also organized by Mojo, asked immediately if we wanted to do this for his festival that year. Other organizations came to look there and before we knew it, we also worked for Parookaville in Germany and Rock Werchter in Belgium. A really nice opportunity.
In 2018, we suddenly became the largest provider of temporary sleeping accommodation worldwide, after we took over the bankrupt G3 Presents in both the Netherlands and England. With over 5,000 tents and more than 8,000 beds, we can build gigantic festival glampings. From now on, international festivals also find us, such as Sziget in Budapest and Tomorrowland in Belgium.
Above all, we want to exceed expectations and create the wow effect. New partnerships were concluded in 2019. For example, we use the special sailing structures of Black Sheep for hospitality at festivals. They give a very cool atmosphere with which we really create a distinctive experience. With the facilities of the Room45 pop-up hotel, organizers can offer many visitors a luxurious overnight stay. With the 45ft containers it is possible to create multiple floors and they even contain sanitary, Wifi and a TV.
Together with our clients and employees, we are always looking for innovative concepts and products. These partnerships ensured that CampSolutions has developed from a sleeping accommodation partner into a total supplier of luxury short-stay accommodations. The new partnerships also open doors in other segments, such as KNVB, Formula 1 and a company like ECCO.
Partnerships and collaboration are fundamental to us. We always look at what they need together with the clients and respond to this. We advise them from practice: which tent suits them and which atmosphere do we want to create. The goal is to create something really cool together. From passion for the profession.
We work hard. Always with the ultimate goal in mind. And then enjoy together what we have achieved together.
Together we create spaces for memories.
