My Award Booking Talk at the Chicago Seminar is Now Completely Booked Up

A week and a half ago I shared that my talk on booking frequent flyer awards at the Chicago Seminar was 90% full.

Rick (aka Frugal Travel Guy) emails this morning to let me know that my session is completely booked. Anyone who was still planning to sign up for my talk at the October 29-30 event is too late.

While the seminar itself appears at about 70% capacity so far, there are multiple concurrent sessions throughout the weekend and no one of those sessions can go over 300. Of the 370 people or so that have signed up so far, 300 chose my award booking talk.

The point in sharing this is, if you’ve been considering signing up for the Chicago seminar (details here), it’s best to do so asap so that you’ll still have your choice of the rest of the sessions. You can still hear from Ben (Lucky) and Brian (The Points Guy), Pudding Guy, United’s Captain Denny Flanagan, Steve (beaubo), and Rick himself.

  1. It would be great a few weeks after the presentation if you could share some video of your presentation (if you can and would like to). Thanks

  2. @cheaplee I am not organizing the event, and I do not believe the organizers will be videotaping, sorry! Besides, not sure who would want to watch video of *me*!
