On Sunday, Frequent Traveler University launched for December 5-7 in Northern Virginia — just outside of DC, and down the street from Washington’s National Airport.
This will be the largest gathering ever of frequent flyers, held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
There are actually two events held simultaneously — Frequent Traveler University and the smaller Frequent Traveler University Advanced. While the two events will share some speakers, they will be separated by several floors at the hotel.
Part of what will make this event so large is a partnership with USA Today. There should be some recognizable names added to the event soon with their help.
Already I’ve mentioned the following speakers:
- Ben Schlappig, One Mile at a Time
- Greg Davis-Kean, Frequent Miler
- Stefan Krasowski, Rapid Travel Chai
- Scott Mackenzie, Hack my trip
- Daraius Dubash, Million Mile Secrets
- Summer Hull, Mommy Points
- Ed Pizzarello, Pizza in motion
- Matthew Klint, Live and Let’s Fly
- The Miles Professor
And I’ve extended some additional invitations as well, some folks that will be great to get involved and will be able to offer excellent insight into travel, and making the most of miles and points.
Everyone purchasing a ticket can receive Hyatt Gold Passport Platinum status. Frequently asked questions and details on this are the linked Milepoint thread.
Frequent Traveler University Advanced sold out quickly, as we knew it would. There are still tickets left for the main event.
