TravelCon II: Las Vegas
After a successful debut with TravelCon OC, we're excited to announce TravelCon II: Las Vegas, another miles/points event that will take place on November 7th, 2015 at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip!
Like last time, the goal of the program is not only to teach through sessions with speakers informing the audience, but also to encourage attendees to connect with each other to create groups of people to bounce ideas off of. The last time we did this event we stressed the social aspect of this points/miles hobby and we received a ton of positive feedback. We're planning to do the same here!
We've confirmed several speakers and are planning to add more. The speakers represent a diverse group of travel and loyalty program experts, some speaking on contrarian views, to ensure attendees receive the most benefit from this event:
9:00 - 9:30 Registration
9:30 - 9:45 Morning Meet & Greet with other Attendees
9:45 - 10:00 Get Situated, Opening Remarks
10:00 - 11:00 Julian - The Devil's Advocate
11:00 - 11:45 Shawn Coomer - Miles to Memories
11:45 - 1:00 Lunch
1:00 - 2:00 Greg - Frequent Miler (Manufactured Spending)
2:00 - 2:45 Matt - Saverocity (TBD)
2:45 - 3:00 Break
3:00 - 3:45 Scott - Travel Codex (TBD)
3:45 - 4:45 Tahsir - Bengali Miles Guru)/Amol - Points to Point B (Manufactured Spending)
4:45 - 6:00 Closing Remarks / Breakout Sessions
6:00 - ??? HAVE FUN IN VEGAS!
Sessions will be structured such that each speaker will discuss a particular topic in depth, including manufactured spending, airline award bookings, hotel programs, and more, followed by Q&A. The breakout sessions can serve as more opportunity for Q&A or for whatever else you want.
Tickets are on sale NOW but will increase in price in the coming weeks. We've kept prices at the same rates as we had for TravelCon OC:
-Early-bird special: $129 per person.
-Regular sale price: $139 per person.
-Last chance: $149 per person.
All tickets will include lunch on the day of the event.
There are no special hotel rates that we've negotiated, but if you were at TravelCon OC and attended Omar's (Travel Summary) presentation, you'll know of a FANTASTIC way to book rooms for the weekend! We will also send out additional information to confirmed attendees on how to book discounted rates. As is the case in most of Las Vegas, self-parking is free. Plan ahead as it's generally a bit of a walk from parking to the meeting rooms.
Due to room restrictions, there are only 100 tickets for sale, so make sure you get yours quickly before prices increase. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Note that tickets are not refundable, but are transferable.
