Save the Date for the Next Frequent Traveler University

Announced on Milepoint, the next Frequent Traveler University will be held April 26-28 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.

Ticketing for the event, and hotel booking at a special rate, will open shortly. But for now I just wanted to make sure the date was out there so that folks could block it off on their calendars.

The next Frequent Traveler University will be held at the Sheraton LAX, November 30 – December 2, and is sold out. 400 folks will be attending to talk about frequent flyer miles earning and burning with Ben Schlappig of the One Mile at a Time blog, Frequent Miler, MileValue, Pizza in Motion, Million Mile Secrets, and Wandering Aramean. And talking talking travel with Cranky Flier and representatives of loyalty programs. And the incomparable Randy Petersen.

Details on the spring event forthcoming, but some of the same speakers and some additional, bigger names along with hundreds of your closest friends talking about all the tips and tricks that you won’t find on the blogs or frequent flyer forums for a few days of fun.

  1. Gary i would like to be a speaker at the april event and discuss one off issues such as fraud alerts, real time limits, money orders, deals that dont make blogs or ft, and other way out there ideas that have brought success to only the few that will listen

    Kindly inform me as to how to become a speaker

    Thanks mm

  2. So I’m not really working on the schedule until after the Los Angeles event but will keep all of these suggestions in mind (since they’re memorialized in the comments section). Thanks!

  3. If MM speaks then I’ll have to attend. I’ve been standing at the bottom of the local South Texas ski run in my Hawaiian shirt and shorts for hours and have yet to have anyone let me buy their lift ticket to get miles on my credit card like he did. Gotta learn his secret. 🙂

  4. Follow the thread on Milepoint, generally folks who can’t attend can transfer their tickets to someone else i believe

  5. >>>>>all the tips and tricks that you won’t find on the blogs or frequent flyer forums

    Really? Do you realize all these tips & tricks will end up in the MMS blog with screenshots & all? He really believes it is the mission of his blog, NOTHING is to NOT to be withheld.

    Marathon Man, stick with FT man, ok? 😉

  6. YES! Another vote for Marathon Man to speak.

    If he speaks the way he posts,better make it
    April 26th – 30th.

  7. …. But I have a ticket to the LA university ans can’t attend. Would love to sell it if anyone is interested.

  8. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the FTU event in LA (due to work travel). I spoke with Tommy of Milepoint, while he doesn’t offer refunds, he said I can resell the ticket. If any one is interested, please reply here. Thank you!
