    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The director of communications for Niagara Casinos has resigned from his post to accept a position as vice president of external relations at Niagara College.

    “It’s not easy to leave a workplace you love…20 years of friendships and incredible work experiences,” Greg Medulun said Thursday.

    “But, I could not be more excited to join the Niagara College team under president Dr. Dan Patterson and help them build on the already phenomenal reputation they have.”

    Medulun joined Niagara Casinos in 1996 as a member of Casino Niagara’s opening team.

    CLOSEUP: Banner year for Canadian operators

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Let the good times roll.

    The lower Canadian dollar is encouraging more Americans to visit and more Canadians to stay at home.

    At Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, business has been “solid since the spring of last year” and they have continued to experience measurable growth in the summer and fall of 2015.

    “January is following the same trend,” said director of communications Greg Medulun.

    The favourable exchange rate and lower fuel costs, he added, is “definitely encouraging more Americans to visit.

    “It also deters Canadians from crossing the border – an important factor for us when considering the significantly larger size of the Canadian market relative to the U.S. market.”

    Medulun said they have a “great” product and “excellent” service standards, which puts them in a good position to make the most of the favourable economic factors they are experiencing.

    Still, it’s been a bumpy 15-year ride for U.S. and international tourism to Niagara.

    It’s also a sector vital to the region’s health.

    Falls casinos cash in on 2015

    From Niagara Falls Review:

    When October and November are “banner months” for a prime tourist attraction — and not the typical July and August — you know you’ve had a good year.

    “We’ve enjoyed a very solid year. The fall season has been especially good, with October and November being banner months for us,” said Niagara Casinos spokesman Greg Medulun.

    “In fact, October was one of our top 10 revenue months of all time. This includes Julys and Augusts over the past 19 years as well.”

    It was a year to savour for the city’s tourism industry.

    Niagara Falls Tourism said this past summer was the best season in years, with many businesses and hotels reporting significant increases in business from last summer.

    Visitors flocking to Niagara Falls

    This is an old article, but the flow of visitors certainly seemed to continue through the whole summer.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara’s two casinos are cashing in thanks to a weaker Canadian dollar and more Americans crossing the border.

    “Business was solid April through June,” said Greg Medulun, director of communications for Fallsview Casino Resort. “The casinos have experienced favourable conditions including a weaker loony that has translated into a spike in business.”

    In addition, he adds, fewer Canadians have been crossing the border, while more Americans have been coming our way.

    From the Buffalo News:

    A high-definition LED sign 13 stories tall now drapes off the side of Niagara Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ont.

    The three-sided digital billboard is purported to be the largest of its kind in Canada.

    The new sign, which went into operation in mid-May, is roughly as tall as the static “Casino” sign that hung on the building since it opened 11 years ago, said Greg Medulun, director of communications for Fallsview.

    Bieber and Co. leave Falls casino after pal denied entry

    From the Toronto Sun:

    Pop star Justin Bieber and his entourage hit the Niagara Fallsview Casino on Saturday night, but it appears they didn’t get very far.

    Fallsview Casino spokesman Greg Medulun said Bieber and “a number of others in his company” arrived at the casino around midnight by limo.

    When one of the people in his posse couldn’t provide ID, he was denied entry onto the gaming floor.

    I’m not sure if you saw it or not, but the Clifton Hill blog used that as an opportunity to talk about some of the figures they have at Movieland Wax Museum of Stars (including Bieber):

    Fans that missed the opportunity to see Justin Bieber in Niagara Falls can at least get their photos taken with him and many other film, tv and music stars hot in the news currently such as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and another recent hot topic, Jennifer Lawrence.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Canadian Auto Workers union is hoping the fifth time’s the charm.

    Management with the two Niagara Falls casinos hope this latest disruption is over.

    Both sides have done this dance before, and now comes the waiting game after thousands of employees cast ballots this week in the CAW’s latest drive to unionize the biggest workforce in the city.

    According to casino spokesman Greg Medulun, about 93% of 2,900 eligible voters cast a ballot.

    Polls at Casino Niagara and Niagara Fallsview Casino closed at 1 a.m. Saturday.
