Here’s a review from CNBC on attending Frequent Traveler University.
The schedule hasn’t been announced as yet, but will likely feature introductory and advanced sessions. The organizers manage to get hotel rooms for less than the regular rate, and ticket prices are reasonable ($99 for the next Frequent Traveler University in Los Angeles).
If you’ve been collecting miles and points for more than a few years, I wouldn’t attend solely to learn something new (you might learn a new trick or two), but to meet other folks who won’t roll their eyes when you talk miles and points (and share something new with you). In my experience, the connections and conversations together with the presentations are what makes miles and points seminars great!
The next Frequent Traveler University will be held at the Sheraton LAX, November 30 – December 2, and is sold out. 400 folks will be attending to talk about frequent flyer miles earning and burning with Ben Schlappig of the One Mile at a Time blog, Frequent Miler, MileValue, Pizza in Motion, Million Mile Secrets, and Wandering Aramean.
And talking talking travel with Cranky Flier and representatives of loyalty programs. And the incomparable Randy Petersen.
I’ll be presenting at Frequent Flyer University in Los Angeles and Emily & I look forward to meeting you in Los Angeles or Washington, DC – or perhaps in both locations!
