SOCIABILITY PREFERENCES BY GENERATION AND LIFE STAGE

People of different generations and at different stages in life socialize differently.

Safe, vibrant and sustainable hospitality zones provide social opportunities for different generations and people in various life stages. They may socialize at different times of day in the same or different social spaces. A diverse patron base can have a social-calming effect by offering a continuum of social experiences at various times of day.
