Globizen refers to Gen Xers and Yers, 35-50, at the peak of their earning potential, who consider travel part of their lives, both for business and pleasure. According to a recent column, globizens are demanding, have high expectations, get their travel recommendations from people who've been there or know other people who've been there — for months. They want to "experience" a place like a local — but a high-end local (upscale local apartments, for instance).
They also have an "incessant desire to share," and because you cannot pry their fingers from their gadgets, they'll be documenting their venturing (they want to "chart new territory, push themselves to the limit") via, well, you know the litany …
"They are the most sophisticated and demanding group of travelers the industry has seen — far more than either baby boomers or millennials," according to Luxury Daily columnist Tammy Smulders.
