Good evening everyone, I hope your Amazon Prime Day shopping is going well. A few hours ago, tickets for Chicago Seminars went on sale. They are $111 for 2.5 full days of travel advice, networking, drinking, more networking, more drinking, and maybe some sleep too. I love going to Chicago Seminars and I am so excited to go back. I just bought my ticket and airfare for the event. There are limited seats available, but when I purchased my ticket at around 5:30pm PT, there were 472 tickets available.
During the registration process, you need to fill out information about yourself and your travel preferences. This is a good ice breaker if you see someone else have the same airport code as you, fly the same airline/alliance as you, or prefer the same hotel chain as you. You then need to register for sessions. You can see all the detailed session info here. Unfortunately, there are several great topics going on at the same times, so you won’t be able to see, listen, or learn everything, which is where networking comes in handy. Make friends and share tips and tricks with others. Sunday’s sessions will be breakout rooms covering every major airline and hotel program available.
Tickets to the event are non-refundable but transferable for a $25 fee. I have been to several FTUs, Chicago Seminars, TravelCons, etc. and I think the Chicago Seminars are the best deal of them all. I hope to see you there, just look for the Travel with Grant shirt and say hi. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
P.S. I hope to see some familiar faces again this year :)
