On Thursday April 28th, frequent travelers and travel industry representatives from around the globe will converge for one night to honor the top loyalty points and miles programs. The awards are voted on by frequent travelers and if you haven’t done so already, submit your ballot here.
Since the event is being held in NYC at Citi Field in Queens, I thought it would only be appropriate to get a table for thepointsguy.com readers. I have 8 open spots at the table, so please email me if you’d like to be one of my guests and I’ll confirm attendance by the end of this week.
Below is an overview of the event. I went to the last one in Houston and had a great time – good food, good drink and good company.
- 6:00 pm Pre-awards cocktail hour
- 7:00 pm Dinner
- 7:30 pm Awards ceremony begins
- 10:00 pm After party
There are other events that weekend that I’ll be attending as well that you might be interested in checking out:
Friday April 29: 11am-2:30pm A special luncheon to commemorate 30 years of the American AAdvantage program. Sponsored by American Express and hosted by Flyertalk and Milepoint founder Randy Petersen. The heads of major loyalty programs like American AAdvantage, United Mileageplus and Hyatt Gold Passport will be there, so it should be a great event. Cost $49.
Friday Evening: Cocktail reception for Frequent Traveler University (included in FTU enrollment)
Saturday: Frequent Traveler University – attend workshops on maximizing your miles, points and elite status. $49
If you can’t attend, don’t worry – I’ll be recapping the key themes and tips here after the event, so stay tuned! With great transfer partners like United and Hyatt, 2x points on travel & dining and a 50,000 point sign up bonus, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great card for those looking to get into the points and miles game.
