    The next Frequent Traveler University event is now a reality!

    It will be held in Seattle, starting the evening of Friday April 25th and running through the afternoon of Sunday, April 27th.
    Speakers include:

    * Ben from One Mile at a Time
    * Greg from Frequent Miler
    * Summer from Mommy Points.
    * Seth from Wandering Aramean (blog.wander.me)
    * Ed from Pizza in Motion www.pizzainmotion.com
    * Daraius from Million Mile Secrets (www.millionmilesecrets.com
    * Matthew from Live and Let's Fly upgrd.com/matthew/
    * Stefan from Rapid Travel Chai boardingarea.com/rapidtravelchai
    * Scott from Hack My Trip hackmytrip.com
    * Sam Weiler on Successful Priceline Bidding
    * Nathan and Michael on The Right Way to Get What You're Entitled to... Without Coming Off as Entitled.

    I’ll be sharing the rest of the speakers and schedule in the weeks and months to come.

    April’s event outside Washington, DC was the largest gathering of frequent flyers in history, with well over 600 people in attendance. It sold out months in advance. That actually seemed too big, and the September event in Tampa felt more ‘right’ — better able to get to know people, build relationships, share tips with other attendees — at just over 400.

    So the Seattle event — since our goal is about quality of interaction, learning, and relationship-building — will be capped at 400 attendees.

    I’m looking forward to being back on the West Coast, and to bringing Frequent Traveler University to a new city!

    You have to put an @gleff in front of that, Gary ;)

    We're not in charge of the Freddies room block and the prices are quite different for Thursday night, aka double. I'd use my megabonus night for that one, Randy

    I will contact the hotel and ask about Sunday night

    I am all booked for the host hotel and the ticket to the event!

    Now let me see if I can convince work that I need to work in our Seattle office a couple of days ahead of time so I can see some of the city while there :)

    its still there, but to enroll, login to your account and go to your Promotion Central (Home > Marriott Rewards > My Account > Promotion Central (or My Promotions from pulldown menu)

    The MegaBonus offer should be there.

    Problem solved. One must be a points earner rather than a miles earner in order to see the promotion.

    It is rather entertaining that y'all couldn't bother to update the event website with the new details before launching the ticket sales.

    If we register for FTU Seattle, are we also invited to the Freddies on the 24th?

    You may get the opportunity but I'd assume there will be a separate cost to it

    For the FTU in DC area in April, we were invited after I had booked airline tickets so we were not able to attend. It would be nice to know about any invitation in advance for April 2014.

    Cheers, Mary Anne
