You can learn from some of your favorite miles and points bloggers at the Chicago Seminars from October 17, 2014, to October 19, 2014. Registration is now open!
How Much Does It Cost to Attend?
The tickets cost $95 per person and includes a buffet lunch Saturday & Sunday, coffee, and snack breaks.
The seminars will be held at the Holiday Inn Chicago – Elk Grove. Unfortunately, the rooms at this hotel are already sold out.
The overflow hotel is the Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago O’Hare Rosemont. It is located ~10 minutes away from the Elk Grove Holiday Inn, and there will be busses between the 2 hotels. You can book your room using 1 of 2 group codes.
For a room with breakfast included use code “CBY”
- A room with a King bed costs ~$99 per night
- A room with 2 Queen beds costs ~$102 per night
Code “CBN” for a room without breakfast:
- A room with a King bed costs ~$94 per night
- A room with 2 Queen beds costs ~$89 per night
You can also make your reservation by calling Holiday Inn at 1-888-551-3853 and mentioning you are with the “Chicago Seminars” or using the group codes.
However, you could save some money by staying at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare which costs ~$69 per night plus tax on TravelPony and is ~12 minutes away. Or you could book the Hilton Chicago O’Hare, which is also currently ~$69 per night plus tax on TravelPony and ~15 minutes away.
But you’d need a car to get to and form those airports, so the savings could cancel out.
And if you use my TravelPony link, you will get a $35 credit on your next booking and I’ll get a $25 credit.Should I Attend?
The seminars are mainly geared towards teaching beginners how to use miles & points for free travel. So if you are new to this hobby, attending the Chicago Seminars is a great way to learn how to get started.
Even if you have been in the miles & points hobby for a while, you still may learn a new trick or two. And the most rewarding part of attending this event is making connections with other folks who share your hobby!Emily and I hope to see you in Chicago!
