    How do I sign up for the Chicago Seminars, that is if they are not sold out. Where and when Is the next ftu? Also what is the difference? Have you been to both?

    Not much difference, really. Some of the back-end business aspects vary but both have a bunch of attendees interested in the game and people speaking who are pretty good at playing it. Some are better than others at presenting but they're all pretty good players.

    Here's the link to the Chicago Seminars thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/exte...-chicago-seminars-october-17-19th-2014-a.html

    See also: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/exte.../1552294-mile-point-conferences-best-why.html. Decent discussion on what the conferences are and where/when they are happening.

    If you are near Chicago just visit the Host Hotel, should be able to walk around with no problem,park in the back, and buy your own lunch, that is about the only time they check tickets.,

    FTU, they do not check tickets for food...

    Crashing parties just like old times.,bring a friend many do..

    Buy. T-shirt, you will blend in..

    I set in FC all they can tell me is to leave.,:D

    I have been to several Chicago seminars and their are always several tickets and host hotel rooms open up.

    Keep checking the site,

    Both put on a good show, I do think, the FTU is better organized, but you will not go wrong with either one,

    If I go to Chicago this year, I will drive from Indy. Flying even for free takes too long...I can drive it faster, than the time to clear the airport police.
