Frequent Traveler University has been featuring events for the past 5 years or so in an effort to help folks learn more about the world of miles and points. While it’s harder to earn free travel nowadays than when I first started in this hobby, it’s still possible. That’s what makes an event like Frequent Traveler University so valuable.
The FTU folks are launching a new event, FTU Expo. They’re expecting a few thousand attendees in Chicago for the first FTU Expo on Saturday, November 18th. The FTU Expo events are geared towards folks who are getting started in the world of miles and points as well as folks that might have a bit more experience.
If you’re a bit more advanced, you might consider the FTU Signature event. This is for folks looking to learn from the foremost experts on earning and burning points in an extreme way. That event is also taking place in Chicago at the same time, from November 17th-19th. Folks who purchase a ticket to the FTU Signature event will also have access to the Expo.
So far, there are a number of speakers confirmed for FTU Expo:
- Rudy Maxa (Rudy Maxa’s World)
- Matt Kepness (Nomadic Matt)
- Greg Davis-Kean (Frequent Miler)
- Chris McGinnis (Travel Skills)
- Chris Guillebeau
- Johnny Jet
- Stefan Krasowski (Rapid Travel Chai)
- Erica Ho (Map Happy)
- Tiffany Funk (One Mile at a Time)
- Matthew Klint (Live And Let’s Fly)
- Nick Reyes (Frequent Miler)
- Howie Rappaport (Award Wallet)
- Becky Pakora (SightDOING with Girl and Globe)
And, I’ll be there speaking as well! There are sure to be more speakers added as we get closer to the event.
For folks who register early, there’s a $10 discount when you use code FTUEARLY and register by July 31, 2017.
FTU Expo tickets are $29 with the $10 discount ($39 after July 31st).
FTU Signature is $239 with the $10 discount ($249 after July 31st).
Why You Should Attend
I have conversations almost every day with folks who aren’t earning all the miles/points they could be. Many of these folks think that they’ll never be able to redeem those miles or points, that they’re wasting their time. When I sit down with them and share a few simple things they can do to earn free travel, their eyes light up.
It’s not difficult to travel the world for very little investment. But, you need to know where to start. A weekend at Frequent Traveler University is an easy way to get started.
Hope to see you there!
