Earlier this week I announced a Twitter contest to be my guest at the Conde Nast Traveler 25th Anniversary Visionaries Gala in NYC on September 18. You had to Tweet me with your choice of which visionary you thought was the most impactful and hashtag it with #tpgguest. I used random.org to select one winner of the 52 entries, which was @TheDJK Who tweeted “For continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible while never giving up & always giving back: Richard Branson #tpgguest

If for some reason @TheDJK can’t attend the alternate is @gbriana whose entry was “all honorees are inspiring but gotta say Ai Wei Wei. particularly considering we’re on twitter. #tpgguest

I’ll be in touch directly with more details of the event. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @thepointsguy because I’ll be live Tweeting from the event on September 18th, in addition to Tweeting top deals and answering your questions every day!

Stay tuned next week for our next giveaway- to be my seatmate on the sold-out Star Mega Do 4 this November!
