This marks the end of our long hiatus from similar events due to the pandemic. In fact, our last in-person event was at the Washington, D.C. Travel & Adventure Show two years ago this past weekend.
The Travel & Adventure Show isn’t just a points-and-miles themed event but rather an event aimed more broadly at those interested in travel and destinations. There are multiple stages and a broad range of speakers this weekend including Pauline Frommer of The Frommer’s Guides, Peter Greenberg of CBS, and Brian Kelly of The Points Guy and a number of other notable authors, tourism board representatives, and expert travel writers.
This is an event broadly aimed at all travelers rather than specifically at the miles-and-points community, so our talk will be a broad overview of the best hotel and flight awards bookable today aimed at people who are newer to the idea of maximizing points and miles. This is a good chance to get a taste of the world of points and miles conferences at a very reduced cost. In addition to our presentation, the other FTU-related speakers at this event include Melanie Lieberman of The Points Guy and Victoria Walker, who you may have seen recently in the mainstream media after leaving The Points Guy (it looks like Travel with Vikkie is coming soon!). We look forward to sharing with the crowd and hopefully running into some readers while we’re there!
