While there are lots of frequent flyer “educational” events in the US, like the upcoming Frequent Traveler University in Tampa, I’m also pretty excited to be part of an upcoming event abroad.
On Saturday, September 21, 2013, TravelMagic will take place in Brussels. It’s being hosted by my friend Bart Lapers, and will be a lot less US-centric than the ones that take place in the US. I’m just hoping Bart lets me speak in English, or else we have a problem, since it doesn’t seem like it was in English last year. 😉
Here’s a pretty nifty video of last year’s TravelMagic:
Anyway, tickets are now on sale for €99, and include all the presentations, lunch, wifi, coffee, tea, and snacks. For what it’s worth I’m paying for my own transportation there, so I’m not getting any of that fee (which I believe is just covering the costs, as hosting these kinds of events isn’t cheap). It’ll be my first time visiting Brussels, so I hope to share some Belgium specialties with you guys — ideally waffles/chocolate, and not beer.
If you’d like to stay at the host hotel, The Hotel (no, this isn’t a game of “Who’s On First,” I promise), there’s a special negotiated rate for September 20-22. Rates are €100 for a Superior room or €125 for a Deluxe Panorama room. Breakfast, wifi, and minibar are included in both rates, and the Deluxe Panorama room includes access to the Panorama Lounge, which I’m told serves food and drinks (including champagne) all day — that seems like it could be dangerous! Anyway, the booking link for the hotel can be found here.
