In their recent book, "The Experience Economy: Work Is Theatre & Every Business A Stage", Joseph Pine, Jr. and James Gilmore describe how we are in the transition of moving from an economy of goods and services to the "experience economy". The White Hutchinson Leisure & Learning Group has assisted many location-based consumer facilities with developing strategies and remodeling and designing facilities to integrate entertainment, recreation and enrichment experiences as part of their offerings.
Hotels and resorts
Today, more and more hotels and resorts are adding special facilities to attract the family market. This includes family entertainment and recreation, both wet and dry; children's play areas; and adult and family enrichment facilities. With our extension and broad experience with all types of family and children's leisure and learning environments and facilities, WHLLG can assist owners of hotels and resorts with developing strategies and designing facilities to attract this important niche market. Our experience includes work with the Bavarian Inn and Restaurant in Frankenmuth, MI and the Concord Hotel in upstate New York.
