Time is running out to buy tickets to Frequent Traveler University in Dallas. If you haven’t bought yet, tickets are just $129 when you use the promo code MILEPOINT, and rooms at the host hotel are $99. The event will be held on April 17-19 and is the largest of its kind this year, including both FTU Advanced (already sold out) and the original FTU.
A few readers have asked if it’s better to attend FTU or hold out for the next FTU Advanced. FTU will have three sessions at any one time, so even if you’ve been to one before, you could probably attend again and learn completely different things. Something else to remember is that holding FTU and FTU Advanced together creates an opportunity to do some bigger activities that aren’t possible at a smaller event. I’ve been working especially hard with the event sponsors to create some special benefits for attendees:
A variety of discounts will be available from ExpertFlyer, Hyatt, LoungeBuddy, Silvercar, AwardWallet, and PointsHound. In addition, Silvercar is offering new customers $50 off their first rental during the event if you use promo code FTU50 to sign up.
Silvercar, Loungebuddy, and PointsHound do amazing things with mobile technology to make your travel experience better. Gary Leff of View from the Wing will be hosting a special panel discussion to learn more about their successes and what’s coming next.
In addition to the Friday night cocktail reception, time will be available on Saturday to meet with sponsors and also some of your favorite bloggers. Hopefully this will be more convenient than trying to catch them in the hallways.
PointsHound will be organizing a special focus group, with invitations to be sent out as the event approaches. Silvercar and LoungeBuddy are also investigating ways to do something special to share their brands.
I look forward to meeting with all of my readers, and Tahsir will also be there to talk about manufactured spend! More information is available on the FTU website.
