Discounted Attendance at Randy Petersen Travel Executive Summit for Milepoint Members

This past week I wrote about the Randy Petersen Travel Executive Summit being held at the Renaissance Newark on Friday, April 27th.

I also mentioned it over on the Conde Nast blog where I contribute frequently.

Last year’s event was an opportunity to meet the heads of the major loyalty programs, and ask them tough programs. In my post earlier in the week I recapped some of the answers and impressions we got.

This year’s is even bigger, with more loyalty program execs. And proceeds from the event go to charity.

But it’s also important to make the event accessible to a wide range of frequent travelers. The $99 price (inclusive of lunch) is a barrier to some. So Milepoint has arranged a $49 price (you still get lunch…) with Milepoint making up the difference. Put a different way, you’re paying for your lunch and we’re covering the gift to charity that comes with attendance.

So for folks that are around the New York area on Friday the 27th, or could be, but where the $99 price was a barrier, the Milepoint member $49 price may help!

  1. I signed up at the regular price, just before I got the e-mail about the discount.
    Any refund to folks like me?

  2. @Bryce in other words will we come out of pocket to make the charitable contribution that you were earlier willing to make? 🙂

  3. @Gary-If I buy something from a store, and suddenly they lower the price, I expect to be able return it, get a full refund, and then buy it for less.
    Wal-mart does it all the time. 🙂

  4. Gary,

    By the way I am not opposed to giving to charity, that is not the issue.

    I just feel that I should be able to get in on the same deal others are, and that I am being “punished” for signing up about 2 hours early.

  5. @Bryce i certainly don’t want anyone to feel badly over this, i’m not involved in the money at all so was just tweaking, email or message tommy777
