All Set to Attend the Chicago Seminars in October

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?

  1. Ooh! Can you please do a “trip report” on the event? I’ve never been to one either, but I’m thinking of going. One one hand, it might be an opportunity to meet like-minded travelers, on the other hand, I already spend a ton of time on my travel life, and I feel like I should focus more on my “real life”.

      Yes, definitely doing a trip report. Totally understand your point about making it your life. In my case it is, and I’m loving it! I think it’s fun to do at least once.

  2. Can’t wait to meet you! Tip…put your blog name on name tag and mingle and have fun!

  3. Chicago will be my first official event as well. See you there! 🙂

  4. I have been in the point game for over 20 yeas plus…

    Went to Chicago last year, and will be back, always something new,

    The lady got fat eating an extra bite of food, same way with getting rich and getting points…

    You got to prime the pump to get the water flowing….

    BS walks, and money talks…
