Muck the Fillennials!

Marketers are missing the largest business opportunity by virtually ignoring active aging consumers who control over 70% of the wealth and account for 40-50% of consumer spending across most categories. Yet marketers are only spending 5-10% of their budgets to market to this group, choosing instead to spend 5 times more against the younger millennial group who account for less than 20% of all consumer spending. In his presentation, Jeff Weiss will highlight the opportunity in targeting active aging consumers, defining who they are and what makes them tick. He will reveal the Dirty Dozen Myths associated with aging and crush the myths and break the stigma and stereotypes attached to older consumers.
