Frequent Traveler University is bringing another event to the DC area this year, just in time for Christmas.
The weekend starts Friday evening, December 5th, but the meet of the program is Saturday and Sunday, the 6th and 7th.
I was fortunate enough over a decade ago to meet a bunch of folks that helped me learn about the world of miles and points. I’m eternally grateful for that help and it’s one of the reasons I enjoy speaking at Frequent Traveler University, to pay it forward, if you will. I will be speaking at this December’s event at the Hyatt Crystal City. To recap:
When is the event? December 5th-7th
Where is it? Hyatt Regency Crystal City (not technically DC, but nearby. Kinda like saying the Giants play in NY)
There are a handful of speakers already confirmed:
Gary Leff, View From The Wing (The Mac Daddy of Travel)
Ben Schlappig, One Mile At a Time (Dude doesn’t have a house, lives in a hotel. Fired up a Kickstarter project to fly in an apartment on an airplane)
Greg Davis-Kean, Frequent Miler (If There’s A Mad Scientist Of Miles, He’s It)
Summer Hull, Mommy Points (The Duchess of Points, If you travel with your family, you NEED to follow her)
Daraius Dubash, Million Mile Secrets (Mr. Bow Tie, Always Willing To Help A Newbie!)
There’s also an Advanced session for those that have moved past the beginner’s stage. Those tickets go quickly, so jump on them now.
Finally, as part of a new partnership with USA Today, there will be a Frequent Traveler Expo. Should be fun!
