9:00am – 9:50am KEYNOTE: Food and Beverage Outlets - What Baby Boomers and Millennials Want Jeff Dover, FsSTRATEGY Inc.
In 2014, Millennials surpassed Baby Boomers as the biggest spenders in restaurants in Canada.

This has implications for casinos. The core gamer in Canada belongs to the Baby Boomer generation. Millennials, on the other hand, represent the future and a market segment that casinos must attract for long term viability. The rub is that restaurant dining preferences are very different for these two groups. In this session, we will discuss the differences and how your casino can develop food and beverage options that meet the expectations of both generations.
