FEATURE PRESENTATION: MARKETING TO MILLENNIALS WITH ERIN BURY

Erin Bury SpeakerMillennials are the largest generation in Canada, making up 27% of the Canadian population and have emerged as one of the fastest growing segments of our tourism sector. According to Destination Canada, not only are millennials apt to travel more frequently and off the beaten track, they are high-spending, long and frequent travellers, likely to recommend a destination and likely to be a repeat visitor over their lifetimes. As instigators of travel trends millennials play an important role in the tourism landscape and image of destinations. Erin Bury is the Managing Director at Eighty-Eight, a Toronto-based creative communications agency that works with high-growth tech startups and consumer brands including PayPal, Sony Pictures Television, and Telus. Named a top 30 under 30 by Marketing Magazine, she is a frequent speaker with Speakers’ Spotlight, writes a monthly column for the Financial Post, is a tech commentator on CTV News and has appeared in publications including The New York Times, Forbes, CNN, and Canadian Business. Erin will be highlighting tangible takeaways on how you can better target millennials and inspire them to make your Grey County tourism business part of their travel plans.
