Tickets for the 2016 Chicago Seminars, scheduled for October 14 – 16, 2016, went up for sale this morning. The Chicago Seminars is an annual event that takes place in Elk Grove Village, IL – about 15 minutes from O’Hare Airport. Some of your favorite points and miles bloggers will be there to talk about their areas of expertise in this hobby, along with fellow hobbyists ranging from newbies to the guy who’s been doing this since before some of us were alive. I’ve attended twice so far and had a great time. It’s too early for me to know for sure if I can make it this year, but I’ll probably buy a ticket anyway and then try to make it work.
Ticket prices are very reasonable: For $105, you get admission to all sessions over the 3-day event, lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and coffee/snacks throughout the event. If you haven’t attended a points and miles conference before or are new to this game, I would definitely recommend the Chicago Seminars. If nothing else, you’ll meet a lot of great people (and a few not so great ones) and feel normal for a weekend.
The event organizers have arranged a $94 group rate at the host hotel, Holiday Inn Chicago Elk Grove, which includes breakfast (group code CHI). Last year I chose to stay at the Hyatt Centric the Loop, but I would definitely stay at the host hotel this time around, just for convenience sake. Be sure to check out the Chicago Seminars 2016 FlyerTalk thread for details about speakers and topics being covered.
