I’ve been helping out with Frequent Traveler University for awhile, and annually we put on about 4 or 5 different events teaching folks about the wonderful world of miles and points and how using these can dramatically reduce the cost of travel.
Instead of writing up another description for this event, here’s the email that went out this morning (that yours truly wrote anyways… 😛):
We’ve been working on something for quite awhile that we’re REALLY excited to share with you!
This November, Frequent Traveler University is proud to bring you two very exciting events – Frequent Traveler University Travel Expo, and Frequent Traveler University Signature, bringing together the best and the brightest in the travel industry.
What is the Frequent Traveler University Travel Expo?
On November 18, 2017, over 50 vendors will gather in 36,000 square feet of convention space to bring you a variety of tools, apps, demonstrations, products, services and more that will help improve your travel experience.
With our Main Sponsor AwardEx, you’ll see many great brands on display, such as ExpertFlyer, Cashback Monitor, Million Mile Secrets and more.
Throughout the event hall, there will be ongoing featured speakers presenting the hottest topics in the miles, points, and travel genre. Rudy Maxa, Nomadic Matt, Frequent Miler, Chris Guillebeau, Johnny Jet and Chris McGinnis are just some of the big-name speakers you’ll get to hear.
This one-day event for just $39 will be a hit for both the long time traveler and those wishing they could take their family on the trip of a lifetime.
Formerly known as FTU Advanced, our Signature event November 17-19, 2017 will bring all of our most popular sessions to an intimate setting where attendees will learn from such experts as Greg Davis-Kean (Frequent Miler), Tiffany Funk (One Mile at a Time), Matthew Klint (Live and Lets Fly) and Stefan Krasowski (Rapid Travel Chai), just to name a few.
- With a Signature ticket, you’ll enjoy these included benefits: • Cocktail reception on Friday
- Coffee, tea, and seasonal breakfast breads Saturday and Sunday mornings
- Two full days chock-full of classroom-style sessions, on Saturday and Sunday
- Plated lunch on both Saturday and Sunday
- Free wifi in the conference rooms BONUS – complimentary access to the Travel Expo!
Attendees will hear our cadre of knowledgable educators explain the intricacies of many of the major airline programs, hotel reward schemes and credit card currencies, all while within a smaller group setting.
In partnership with Marriott Rewards, both events will be held at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare.
Attendees of either event will receive a special day parking rate of $3 (overnight rates are standard).
