Million Mile Secrets is one of the sponsors of the Frequent Traveler University miles and points conference at the Sheraton in Meadowlands, in East Rutherford New Jersey on April 27 & 28, 2012 where I’ll be leading a session on “Introduction to miles & points – How to get started.” Tickets are still available!
I’ll also be attending the Randy Petersen Travel Executive Summit on Friday, April 27 at the Renaissance Newark, and tickets are available for $99. I encourage you to buy tickets ($99 each) since the proceeds go to charity.
Randy Petersen is usually regarded as THE authority on miles and points, and is usually never wrong. I go out of my way to read what we writes and to listen when he speaks.
The event starts at 9:30 am and ends at 1:30 pm and includes brunch. The first session is “Cash, Credit or Miles — Miles As an Emerging Payment Currency” and the second session is “Inventing the Present and the Future: What Makes Hotel Loyalty Programs Tick.”
For more details check out Gary’s post on the Randy Petersen Travel Executive Summit.
I’d like to give away 3 tickets to the Randy Petersen Executive Travel Executive Summit to Million Mile Secrets readers!
Just answer this question:
