In 2009 Flexotels was officially launched and 22 rooms were made. Because of all the free publicity, for such an innovative product, enquiries from all over Europe and the rest of the world were made. This resulted in the first events in 2010. Events like Tomorrowland, 24H Le Mans, Lowlands and Zwarte Cross were the first that offered, what is known now as Glamping, to their guests.
From 2010 till 2016 our stock grew more and more and contained around 350 rooms. And because we’re an innovative company and due to clients demand for more comfort we launched a new accommodation that took glamping to another level. In 2016 the Comfotel was launched. The first foldable accommodation with toilet and shower.
Nowadays we do business all over Europe and provide every year more than 10.000 guests with a comfy bed during a festival, sportevent or wherever a good night of sleep is needed. And there is more to come, because we keep on innovating!

Hubert von Heijden
CEO & Founder
Leader of the pack and also known as the Godfather of Glamping. Has been in the business so long that it is said that even Napoleon himself stayed in a Flexotel. A pioneer and always full of ideas. Known for his very bad jokes and his words of wisdom.
Manager Buying & Planning
Without her we would fail big time. Every project begins and ends with her. Be very kind to Stephanie from mid June till end of July or she will bite. A tireless worker, undiscovered interior design talent and everyone’s favorite girl at the office (we only got one). Even checks on us when she’s on holiday.
Manager Sales DHCH
Our German Dutchman Ole doesn’t have it easy all the time. Yet he drives 1.5 hours to the office 3 times a week and still gets across the border unnoticed. With his trading experience from motorsport, he is going to ensure that Flexotels becomes the market leader in Germany.
Manager Sales and Marketing
With Emma, the question is not what she eats tonight, but where. Easy target to fool because she believes almost everything. Socially there is nothing wrong with it so, as our sales and account manager, she likes to make sure all Flexotels end up well.
Our latest teammember and close friend of the Von Heijdens. Drove from LeMans to Defqon.1 in 3 hours to bring keys. Is crazy about fireworks. Doesn’t stop before the work is finished. Fan of Dumpert. One of those guys you need in your team.
This councillor of the municipality of ‘Peel and Maas’ is also seen as the leader of production. As the only woman among the tough guys, still everyone is listening to her. Her secret? Just talk a lot and pretend to know a lot about Formula 1 and soccer. She started as a trainee and now the project manager at Flexotels.
Tom De Schoenmaeker
This hospitality tiger said goodbye to his friend “Pardoes” at the Efteling to work as a project manager by Flexotels. He passed his first festival season with flying colours which is partly due to his scouting skills. Survival in harsh conditions is therefore in his blood.
With his sixth sense, he managed to get ahead of everyone’s thoughts. So you don’t have to explain much to him. For lunch, he eats at least three sausage rolls and two grilled sandwiches and isn’t even full yet. Furthermore, you can recognise him by his bucket hat, nobody knows what’s under there.
Assistant project manager
Our newest addition to the production can be described as technical but not that handy. If this will be usefull for us, we have to find out later in the season. This former pizza baker knows his way around. Recently, he has shown that he dives into everything and no project is too crazy for him.
Assistant project manager
You shouldn’t have any arguments with this butcher. He knows better than anyone how to slice the knife on both sides, so we are very happy with this all-rounder. He does function better in higher temperatures and a point for logistical planning, chauffeur required when Koen has to go to location….
