There are still some tickets left for Frequent Traveler University in Las Vegas. The event runs from April 29th to May 1st and I’ll be speaking twice with Summer (Mommy Points).
I’ve been speaking at FTU for quite a few years and I’m always meeting people who are learning new things. The great part is that I always learn something new myself! This time, the folks at FTU have put together a hybrid event that offers a combination of beginner and advanced sessions.
The dates are April 29th to May 1st in Las Vegas, NV.
Here’s a peek at what’s already on the docket:
- What is it like to live in hotels full time?
- Finding Cheap Premium Fares
- Introduction to Mileage Running: Costs and Benefits
- International Upgrade Methods and Strategies
- Using ExpertFlyer
- Live Award Bookings
- Advanced booking techniques for revenue tickets
- Non-traditional awards and miles
I’ll be there, along with a host of other bloggers, including:
One Mile at a Time (both Ben Schlappig and Tiffany Funk)
Frequent Miler (Greg Davis-Kean)
Million Mile Secrets (Daraius Dubash)
Mommy Points (Summer Hull, aka my partner in crime)
