Register For Chicago Seminars 2015: October 16-18

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:


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!


  1. I think you mean “homey” not “homely.”

    hom·ey — ˈhōmē/
    adjective — 1. (of a place or surroundings) pleasantly comfortable and cozy.

    home·ly — ˈhōmlē/
    adjective — 1. (of a person) unattractive in appearance.

  2. Actual Brits chime in here, but… My English husband and his family say “homely” when they mean cozy and nice… like a home.
    In this case, I think that Ben is using the American sense of the world homely… kinda ugly, (but somehow in an endearing way)

  3. Hey Ben – I picked up a Rimowa amenities kit from my EVA flight last month (still unwrapped). Would you like it? I would gladly accept a drink at the bar during this conference.

  4. @ Jeroen — It’s not at all just about credit cards, so I certainly think there are plenty of tricks to be learned for someone from Europe. That being said, not sure I’d fly from Europe just for this.
