As I mentioned last week, I’ll be speaking at the upcoming Frequent Traveler University, which is one of a series of events intended to share the intricacies of the miles and points hobby. The next major one will be held at the Hyatt Regency DFW April 17-19, 2015.
While I’m not responsible for organizing the event, I do choose and put together my own presentations. For the most part, I’ve stuck to “tried and true” topics, and have generally focused on mileage running as a way to earn miles, along with tricks for redeeming miles.
That being said, there’s a huge range of topics in this hobby, and I’m always up for exploring new concepts in more detail. The other speakers feel similarly, but it’s hard to gauge what people find most interesting when there’s such a diverse group of attendees.
So I’m interested in hearing what’s most interesting to you!
What would inspire you to attend FTU, or if you’re already planning on joining us, what are you most excited to learn about? If you have things you’re hoping to learn about, or just don’t understand presently we’d love to hear about those ideas too.
As an incentive, I have a $400 Hyatt gift card to give to a randomly selected respondent. I also have an $100 Hyatt gift card to arbitrarily bestow on the most constructive comment. 😉
As I mentioned at the beginning, neither myself nor the other presenters are involved in the organization of the event, so let’s keep the conversation focused on the topics of the presentations as much as possible.
Please tell me:
- Whether or not you’ve attended a Frequent Traveler University in the past?
- If Yes, what topics have you most enjoyed learning about?
- If No, what topics would you most like to learn about or discuss at a FTU?
You have until 11:59PM Pacific on Friday, February 13, 2015, to respond. Thanks for the feedback, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
And if you haven’t yet purchased your ticket for FTU but would like to attend, tickets are still on sale.
