Today marks the 11th annual Chicago Seminars, the “original” travel conference that brings experts and novices together to talk miles, points, credit cards, airline, and hotel loyalty programs in a low-key format. This year’s event will be in the form of a telecast and it’s not too late for you to join.

The Chicago Seminars were founded by Howie Rappaport and Rick Ingersoll, two great men who I have had the pleasure of knowing for over a decade. Earlier this week they reminisced about the last decade, which you can watch below:
This will be the first time in four years I’ll be speaking at the Chicago Seminars. Four years ago I was confirmed but had to cancel due to the brith of my son. I’ve missed it greatly…both meeting the happy new entrants into the world of miles and points and the wonderful familiar faces that I so enjoyed re-connecting with each year. I hope to see many of you later today!
