I Haven’t Firmed Up My Schedule, so I Don’t Know Yet If I’ll Be Attending. But There Are Plenty of Other Excellent Speakers Already on the Roster!

Emily and I have attended (and spoken!) at conferences like this before and had a fantastic time!

Should You Go?

Frequent Traveler University’s Travel Expo is geared to everyone, including beginners.  And the Signature sessions are for folks who already know the basics.  

If you want to learn advanced techniques and dig into the details of miles & points, I’d suggest getting a ticket for the full weekend (FTU Signature).

If you’re new to the hobby or just want to learn from and network with other points enthusiasts, check out the one-day FTU Travel Expo event.

And don’t forget, tickets have sold out very quickly in past years, so get them while you can!

These events are a fun way to spend a weekend learning how to get more Big Travel with Small Money.  And it’s the best way to learn secret tips and tricks you won’t read about on the blogs.  😉

Bottom Line

The next Frequent Traveler University will be November 17 through November 19, 2017, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare.

Tickets are on sale now, and cost $39 for the one-day Travel Expo, or $249 for the Signature series that lasts the whole weekend.

Grab them while you can, because they usually sell out quickly!  And don’t forget to use the code “FTUEARLY” for $10 off through July 31, 2017.

Daraius,

Just like you and Emily liked to travel and gained worldly knowledge together, I am sure there are lots of couples like you out there. You ever thought about offering a discounted package deal for husband and wife team?

Thanks for your time.

What happened to the annual FTU event occurring in DC every Aug or Sept?
