The current iteration of the schedule for Frequent Traveler University in Northern Virginia, April 26-28, is now up on the FTU website.
Last I checked there were about 30 tickets left for Frequent Traveler University. There will be 650 people total in attendance, the largest gathering ever of frequent flyers in one place.
But not to worry , for folks who wind up shut out and unable to buy a ticket, the tickets are not refundable by they are transferable and I do frequently see folks on Milepoint looking to find a good home to a ticket when a business commitment or family obligation gets in the way of their attending. So al hope won’t be lost once these last handful of tickets sell out. Which will happen very soon.
Events begin Friday April 26th with evening cocktails. The substantive program gets underway Saturday morning at 9am where I’ll welcome everyone in attendance.
There will be three concurrent session throughout much of the weekend, and general sessions as well. For instance the morning will start with a choice of
- Introduction to Miles & Points: with Daraius Dubash & Summer Hull
- Mileage Running 101: with Ben Schlappig
- American Airlines Status, Upgrades, & Awards: with Edward Pizzarello
General sessions will include participation by Starwood Preferred Guest, a talk by Chris Guillbeau who will have just two weeks earlier completed his quest to visit every country in the world, and the famous ‘Secrets & Lies’ panel on all of the tricks and tips that don’t get posted in online forums.
We’ll have Brian Kelly hosting the Ultimate Showdown for the Most Awesome Credit Card in the Galaxy, a panel on Using Technology to Improve Your Travel, and discussions of credit card churning, making the most of flying Delta and flying United, family travel, and the current state of earning 5 points per dollar on all of your spending everywhere.
And that’s just a sample, the full current schedule is available here.
