Hands down, one of the best things about this hobby are the people in it. There’s nothing more enjoyable than talking miles and points face-to-face in a social setting with people who “get” this quirky hobby. There are two fun-filled events coming up that are open to the public for fellow points and miles enthusiasts to gather together, learn new tricks, and share travel tips. Here’s where we can meet:
- Friday, April 25 to Sunday, April 27 in Seattle: Whether you’re a new or old player in the points and miles game, there’s always room to learn more and meet some pretty amazing people in the process at Frequent Traveler University. Though this event is technically already sold out, there’s still a chance to score a ticket from someone who can no longer make it. I love going to weekend of points and miles seminars because you can’t beat being in an environment with some of the most influential people in the industry. I’ll personally be in Seattle from Thursday night (for the Freddie awards) until Friday evening for the cocktail hour/kick-off of FTU. You can learn more/discuss FTU here. Looking forward to chatting with all!
- Friday, October 17 to Sunday, October 19 in Elks Grove, IL: Tickets are already on sale for this year’s Chicago Seminars that is taking place in Elks Grove, IL during the weekend of October 17-19. The event is capped at 500 people, and has historically sold out in the past. I’ve attended for the past 3 years have always had a blast. I’m sure I’ve said this a thousand times, but this event was the true seed of inspiration for starting this blog, and I highly recommend you attend if you want to be with a group of like-minded individuals who enjoy traveling with points and miles as much as you do. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at the Chicago Seminars – my session about Best Rate Guarantees is on Saturday afternoon. As a natural deal-queen, I’m excited to share some great BRG strategies. This event is surely not to be missed!
Looking forward to meeting new faces and seeing familiar ones!
