The dates for the next Frequent Traveler University were just announced, and I have tentative dates for the Chicago Seminars 2013 as well, so I thought I’d post them so all those interested in learning about miles and points firsthand can mark your calendars.
Although the upcoming edition of Frequent Traveler University taking place Friday-Sunday, November 30-December 2, 2012, at the Sheraton Gateway LAX is sold out, you’ll have another chance to attend FTU in April now that the dates and location have been announced on Milepoint. The spring 2013 FTU will take place Friday-Sunday, April 26-28, at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner outside Washington DC, which is reputed to be one of the nicest Hilton properties in the US. Although they haven’t announced the speaker line-up yet, there are bound to be some big names and interesting talks going on, so keep an eye out for an announcement on TPG for when tickets go on sale because it should be an interesting weekend! It will also piggy back on the Freddies award ceremony for the top loyalty programs, so it should be an action packed weekend.
Chicago Seminars 2013
This year’s Chicago Seminars were a ton of fun, and a great learning experience for everyone there – including me!
It looks like the dates and location have already been set for Chicago Seminars 2013 already as well! They’ll take place Friday-Sunday, October 11-13, 2013, at the Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village near Chicago O’Hare again.
Although tickets and hotel rooms won’t go on sale until the spring of 2013, keep your eyes peeled because once they go on sale, they go fast. Of course I’ll give you the heads up on here, and I hope to see many of you again next year – and some new faces among those of you who weren’t able to make it this year.
