Join me at Frequent Traveler University Chicago

After going full time with Thrifty Traveler, I’ve had a blast networking with other travel enthusiasts. Earlier this summer, I spoke at Frequent Traveler University (FTU) Minneapolis. I had a great time learning a few new tricks as well as meeting several readers. I’m excited to announce I’ve been invited to speak again at FTU Chicago! The event will be held at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare hotel.

Frequent Traveler University teaches travelers the tips, tricks, and methods to travel cheaper, better, and more creatively. There are speakers and guest panels for every type of traveler. If you’d like to learn more about travel hacking & travel rewards, this is the event for you.
