It is time for the the next Frequent Traveler University, which is coming up in Seattle on the weekend of February 23-25, 2018.  Originally it was at the Four Points Sheraton but it has been moved to the Crowne Plaza Seattle Airport

FTU Signature Seattle 2018

FTU Signature is what I think of as more of the “traditional” FTU – this is the whole weekend and your ticket includes

  • Coffee and tea on Saturday and Sunday morning until 10:30am
  • Plated lunch on Saturday and Sunday
  • Internet in the conference rooms

  • Tiffany on Beginner’s Award Travel
  • Ariana on Beginner’s Manufactured Spend

People are more likely to share tips at sessions like this vs. putting them out there on a blog / the Internet

Even people who have been in the miles and points world for awhile are likely to get at least one actionable item in addition to the networking tips
