Millennial travelers are on the rise. You can spot them with their smartphones waiting for a flight, working on their Macbook in a hotel lobby, or maybe even hailing a taxi while still in a meeting.

By 2030, this generation of travelers is expected to reach 78 million and outnumber baby boomers by 18 million, according to hospitality consulting firm HVS.
