What we've seen is that the under-34 crowd wants to be downtown, near an urban center, and close to where life happens. They're very interesting in knowing everything they can, right there at their fingertips.
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Kyle Baker, director of business development of Priority Corporate Housing, recently spoke with Rudy Maxa of Rudy Maxa's World about the findings of Expedia's Future of Travel Report. The report, comprised of 8,535 employed adults in 24 countries, uncovered the vast difference in travel habits between younger and older businesspeople.
According to the report, "[Millenials] are more likely to extend a business trip into a personal vacation than older employees are." Also, when booking hotels, millenials place more emphasis on hotel location than they do on hotel price, travel time, and air fare.
But, according to the report, what sets millennial business travelers and older business travelers farthest apart are mobile devices and how they interact with them. Rudy Maxa, who was broadcasting live on February 15 from sunny Fort Meyers, asked Baker what he thought about these findings.
"Being a millennial myself, I think it's important to note that we're on the go. We do things on a tablet, we do things on a phone. And we like to experience things, too. We're very experiential," said Baker of Priority Corporate Housing, a Richmond-based company that provides furnished housing solutions to people who travel to Richmond, VA on business.
Baker also spoke about the trends he and his company notice among younger business people who rely on Priority's housing solutions.
"What we've seen is that the under-34 crowd wants to be downtown, near an urban center, and close to where life happens. They're very interesting in knowing everything they can, right there at their fingertips."
