Join Nick at The Travel Summit in Toronto in April 2024


Update 4/19/24: Reminder that this event is next weekend. If you can make it to Toronto, it should be a great opportunity to learn from some great speakers.

In April of 2024, I (Nick) will be speaking at The Travel Summit in Toronto, Canada and there are just a couple of hours left to get early-bird pricing for those interested in attending. Greg spoke at last year’s event and he not only enjoyed it very much but also picked up some useful information. This conference is at the higher end of the pricing spectrum, but it looks like it’s going to be a great time.

Is it worth it?

Readers always wonder whether in-person events are worth the cost in terms of the ticket price and also the cost of hotel and travel expenses. That’s always a tough question to answer (in large part because the answer isn’t universal). Personally, when I got started in miles and points, I had spent about a year reading as much as I could and then I was in the midst of a year of collecting miles and points when a friend of a friend told me about a miles and points conference. I hadn’t even known such a thing existed. I attended thinking that I knew everything I needed to know but curious to see what I might be missing. Suffice it to say that there were far more holes in my game than I had realized. My mind was blown — and a few years later, I ended up here at Frequent Miler.

In the years since, I’ve always enjoyed getting to miles-and-points events both for the camaraderie of being in a group of folks with a common interest and for the networking opportunities of building relationships with people who can help you succeed. Many of the best tips I’ve gotten over the years have been thanks to connections made at conferences like this.

The Travel Summit takes place in Canada, though many speakers are US-based, including names readers may know like Spencer Howard of Straight to the Points, Julia Menez of Geobreeze Travel, Senitra Horbrook of PointsTravelher (and formerly of TPG), and Matt Kepnes of Nomadic Matt. You’ll also likely know some of the Canadian names like fellow Boarding Area blogger Anshul Singh of Points Miles and Bling and Ricky Zhang and the team from Prince of Travel. There are more than 20 confirmed speakers thus far.

If you’re new to the game, I’m sure you’ll get a ton of value out of a weekend of focused sessions with top-notch speakers. And if you’re farther along, I expect that you’ll still learn some new tips but you’ll also have a chance to hone your networking in the lobbies and social hours. As Greg has written before, a lot of things in this game are easier with a network of friends ((travel with friends, learn underground manufactured spending tips, find friends with Hyatt Globalist status who can share their benefits with you, find out about deals that haven’t yet hit the blogs, etc.).

It is hard to compare one conference against another and I have not yet personally attended The Travel Summit, but I look forward to the chance to connect with others who love the hobby at this event. If you do join me at this event, please stop me and say hello — I love to meet readers!

I love FM – I can’t stand the Prince of Travel team. Being a Canadian based hobbyist and knowing Ricky and team through the years. What started off as a great blog and fun enterprise – are seemingly run by visions of becoming the next TPG… cringe.

I just can’t stomach supporting their event any longer but you being there is giving me conflicting feelings! You guys should organize a FM on the go while you are up in the Great White North!


Bravo *applause* summed up perfectly regarding the PoT “team”

Pretty disappointing Nicko, is anything you’ve said correct ?
