2 In conversation with…

Loek van de Loo

Doing business in times of COVID-19 Video conversation with Loek van de Loo, camping entrepeneur

About Loek van de Loo Loek van de Loo is an entrepreneur with a proven track record in this sector. As the - now former - owner of Vacanceselect he grew the business from a single campsite on Lake Garda to an internationally operating holiday company. Loek also introduced unique glamping accommodation opportunities almost every year and was a pioneer in the field of international online camping portals. Since the acquisition of his business by French company Vacalians he has remained active in the holiday market, launching a new business - Vacanze Col Cuore - and providing glamping holidays in Italy and, as from 2021, in the Netherlands. When most of Europe’s borders closed in March this year, bookings dried up. How do you cope with a crisis like this when your key foreign markets fall away completely? The ANWB will be talking to Loek about the challenges faced by the camping sector in general and, in particular, in a time of corona.
