During my 30-plus years in the gaming industry, I’ve certainly seen a lot of exciting changes and tremendous innovation in what our hotel and casinos offer to you, our valued guest.
Today I’m excited to share with you our latest evolution that taps into the growing popularity and interactive fun that can be found online.
Station Casinos is once again embracing innovation by reaching out to you in a new way with Facebook, Twitter and blogs to name a few. Not that the old way doesn’t work, but it’s one-way communication where we share news, special events and promotions with you in traditional ways such as newspaper and TV ads, emails and direct mail delivered to your home.
To usher in this new era, I’m pleased to welcome you to my very first blog. Not just for Station Casinos, but my very first blog EVER! This will, more than likely, shock my children that I actually have a blog.
The new way gives us a chance to meet and interact with you in real time, before you even step foot inside one of our casinos. We wanted to use these exciting platforms to learn about what’s in the hearts and minds of our guests; find out what’s important to you and get your feedback so we can continue to deliver on our promise to provide you with great value, an array of entertainment choices and extraordinary guest service.
Our philosophy is to be “good listeners” and to help create entertainment experiences for you that are memorable, fun and a great value.
I hope you will check us out and become our Facebook Fan, follow us on Twitter, check out our videos on YouTube and share your photos from your fun times at our casinos on Flickr. Come back and visit my blog from time-to-time as well. In my next posting, I’ll fill you in on what my kids said when they saw my blog.
Before I go, let me close with wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday season.
