Over the next two months, I’ll be appearing at both the New York Times Travel Show (January) and the Los Angeles Times Travel Show (February), so if you are around either city on the dates listed below, I’d love for you to come by and hear me speak and for the chance to meet some of my readers in person.

The New York Times Travel Show, January 18-20, 2013
Following my appearance at the New York Times Travel Show last year, I was invited back again this year to give not one, but two seminars over the course of the weekend, which is coming up next month.

This year, the 10th Anniversary New York Times Travel Show runs from Friday, January 18 – Sunday, January 20, 2013 with the Saturday and Sunday sessions open to the general public and travel professionals.

Tickets are $12 until January 17, and then $17 if you buy them on January 18 and after. Children are free. You can buy your ticket here.

On Saturday, January 19, I’ll be giving a talk entitled “Beating the System – Travel Points Pointers for a First Class Lifestyle on a Budget” at 5:00 pm in Seminar Room 1.

On Sunday, January 20, at 1:30pm, I’ll be giving another talk in Seminar Room 1 geared towards credit cards specifically, “Maximizing Credit Cards for Free Travel.”

Los Angeles Times Travel Show, February 22-24, 2013
The LA Times Travel Show is being held at the end of February this year at the LA Convention Center.  Admission is $10 per day and you can buy tickets here.

I’ll be speaking on a panel with Gabe Saglie, the founder of TravelZoo, and Johnny Jet, moderated by LA Times Travel Editor Catharine Hamm. The topic will be budget travel and the best tips for traveling in a cash-conscious way. We’ll be speaking both days for about an hour starting at 11:15 am.


I’ll have more details on the show as the date approaches, but for those of you in the LA area, put it on your calendars and I’ll see you there!

For both events – it means so much to me to have my readers there. You have supported me, taught me and continue to inspire me, so it’s always a pleasure meeting you, and I hope you can make it to any of these great events.

    are the seminars for advanced or beginners?

  • Marlene

    I just happen to be going to New York that weekend. Using strategies you’ve outlined here, I got my flight with Chase points, and though I have to switch hotels, the two nights cost me a whole $29 in total for some pretty nice places. I will see if my friend is up for your Saturday seminar. Could really be worth the $12.

    The audience is more of a general travel audience, so the talk will be more for beginners, but don’t worry, I’ll have some tips for the advanced points collectors in the audience as well!

  • thepointsguy

    Great job! Looking forward to meeting you.

  • Mike

    Im hoping to make one of your NYC talks. There’s no way I can make both of them. Which seminar do you think I would get the most out of considering the following: I’ve been collecting points for about two years, my wife won’t participate, and I always have to buy four tickets when traveling (two children). Thanks.

    I will try and stop in to see you at the NY Travel show. Wanted to compare notes on South Africa – and any hints on how to upgrade on SAA….

    I just bought tickets to the NY travel show- how do I register for seminar? Looking forward to this weekend!

  • thepointsguy

    No need to register- just show up! See you there

  • thepointsguy

    Saturday is general tips and Sunday more advanced/credit card.. Probably Sunday?

  • thepointsguy

    Star alliance upgrades are usually pretty expensive.. So it may be cheaper to just buy us airways miles and book a biz award
