David Troya is the founder and CEO of GlampingHub.

Growing up in Triana, a popular working class neighborhood of Sevilla (Andalucia), David struggled to find opportunities to express and expand his global entrepreneurial mindset. Luckily, he took advantage of scholarship opportunities and studied abroad in Germany and Hawaii during college, and he ultimately completed his MBA on a full-ride scholarship at the University of San Francisco. In between college and graduate school, David worked in the hospitality field and he managed an international travel agency in Sevilla.

The idea for Glamping Hub was born out of a class discussion on new trends and travel while David was completing his MBA in San Francisco. Given his background in travel and hospitality, he was rapidly drawn to the idea of a new breed of accommodations that combines comfort and access to the outdoors (glamour with camping).

Since starting Glamping Hub, David has remained engaged with the international community, as well as the local entrepreneurial community in Sevilla. Recently, he received the Medal of Honor of Sevilla, the highest honor given by the city, for his commitment to entrepreneurial development in Sevilla.

About GlampingHub:
For some people, nothing beats getting dirty and exploring the “great outdoors”. Others prefer more glamorous accommodations: room service, hot showers, etc. Glamping Hub is a booking portal that combines the best of both worlds, where travelers can book over 14,000 unique outdoor accommodations from tree houses overlooking the Sacred Valley in Peru to luxurious campervans off the coast of Portugal. Glamping Hub has tapped into a $50Bn highly fragmented sector, hand-selecting an exclusive directory of luxurious outdoor accommodations in over 80 countries based on comfort, proximity to nature, and affordability.
