One of the longest standing annual miles & points “events” is the Chicago Seminars, which has been held at the Holiday Inn in Elk Grove, Illinois (near Chicago O’Hare Airport) for the past four years.
The Chicago Seminars will be returning this year, October 16-18, 2015. Registration opened earlier today, and spots are going quickly, so be sure to register soon if you’d like to attend.
Registration costs $100 per person, and includes access to all sessions (based on space availability), lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and coffee breaks. Breakfast is not included with registration, but rather is included with a reservation at the host hotel at the group rate, which is $94 per night.
Here are the links with all the most important info:
- Chicago Seminars ticket registration link
- Holiday Inn Elk Grove group booking link
- Chicago Seminars speakers list and schedule
For what it’s worth, I’ll be speaking about how to find cheap premium airfare and how to make last minute award bookings on Saturday afternoon, though there are tons of other topics being discussed as well.
While the Holiday Inn Elk Grove is rather homely, there is something charming about this event, in my opinion, given that we have the entire hotel to ourselves.
Hope to see lots of you there!
