Huge Win! New Speakers Added to Frequent Traveler University DC

Frequent Traveler University, December 3-5, Hyatt Regency Crystal City (near Washington’s National Airport)

I wanted to share an update on the lineup for December’s Frequent Traveler University.

Chris Guillebeau, host of the annual World Domination Summit who shared his story completing his question to visit every country in the world at Frequent Traveler University last April, had his book on quests debut at number 3 on the New York Times best seller list. He combined travel acumen with a passion for life and experiences.

Nomadic Matt will help round out the presentations, Frequent Traveler University isn’t just about earning the most points so you can use them for luxury travel, Matt is one of the really knowledgeable people about how to stretch your dollars when you travel, getting the best deals on everything.

And we’ll get an insider’s view of what airline executives really think about frequent flyer programs, and why they always claim devaluations are ‘enhancements’ — the behind the scenes things that guide airlines in the way they message to you — from USA Today‘s Ben Mutzabaugh.

The event is compelling enough that travel personalities like JohnnyJet are planning to attend, just to be there. And that’s before I confirm one other really special surprise..

And that’s on top of already-confirmed speakers like:

  • 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
  • Randy Petersen, founder of Flyertalk, MIlepoint, and BoardingArea
  • Hans Mast, expert on earning hundreds of thousands of miles a month while buying and selling online at a profit.

Truly a can’t-miss event and promises to be the best Frequent Traveler University ever! The room block is filling up, so I’d suggest signing up now…
