Should you go to FTU Washington?
I’ve had fun at conferences like this. For many of us, we are the only “miles and points” people in our area, so it can be fun to spend time with other people who “get it”. If you’re starting out, you will probably get tips from the different sessions, but you’re likely to get even MORE value from networking with people before, during and after the sessions. 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
