In the two years I’ve been chasing points, I’ve failed to attend a single frequent flyer event. I’ve read lots of blog posts about these events and the consensus tends to be “If you’re a newbie it will be helpful, otherwise just show up for the networking opportunity.”
No matter where you are on the points/miles spectrum, this seems to be a rite of passage you can’t escape (after all, it seems to happen every other weekend now).
With that said, I am looking forward to attending the Chicago Seminars on October 11-13 and meeting others who are as obsessed with this hobby as I am. If you’re interested in attending, tickets for the event are still available. All proceeds from the event are donated to charity and your meals are covered for the weekend.
Are you attending the Seminars this year? Any advice for a first-timer?
