Troya shares, “Something that we are really happy about is having Axon on our side from here on. Axon’s valuable investment experience with digital companies and commitment to explore new markets are crucial to our growth. It is the kind of partnership that will allow us to focus on performance and strengthen our brand.”
With Glamping Hub in the midst of glamping, the market is trending. “Experiential travel is on the rise and we are a reference in this sector. Our demographic is more interested in purchasing experiences rather than assets,” said Troya.
