Frequent Traveler University took place last weekend at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, and about 650 people were in attendance. For those of you that missed it (or those of you that attended and enjoyed it), the next one in will be at the Grand Hyatt Tampa on September 27-29.
Go figure it’s in Tampa exactly a year after I move to the other coast, though I do still take pride in “my” hotel, the Grand Hyatt. I’ve probably done over 100 nights worth of mattress runs at that hotel thanks in large part to the closed club lounge on weekends, which gets you 2,500 bonus Gold Passport points as a Diamond member.
Anyway, tickets are available for the two day event for $100 per person, and rooms at the Grand Hyatt are available at a specially negotiated rate of $119 per night plus tax. Speakers include Gary from View from the Wing, Daraius from Million Mile Secrets, Summer from Mommy Points, Greg from Frequent Miler, Seth from Wandering Aramean, and more.
The seminars should cover everything from earning to burning miles, and hopefully with content for a variety of skill levels. If nothing else these events are a great opportunity to network with other points obsessed people.
Hope to see lots of you there!
