What is the Frequent Traveler University?

If you aren’t quite sure what the Frequent Traveler University is, here is some info also taken directly from Milepoint that should give you a general idea of what the FTU is all about.

  • Complimentary cocktail party on Friday night sponsored by

That’s right! 15 spots to this years prestigious awards will be drawn on March 1st, the only thing you have to do, is sign up for the FT University before this day. The Freddie Awards are not open to the public, this will be one of very few chances to get access!

  1. Ahh, I wish I could go, but I have a massive professional exam in May that I’m hunkering down for. Maybe I can make it next year.

  2. Thanks for posting the update. Would have been really bummed out if I had missed out on this after missing out on the oneworld megado

  3. @Angelina, I hope the weather is favorable for a nice walk. 😉

    @Kashyap, see you there!

    @The Wanderer, no problem – happy to help. 😉

    @Karlyn, yay!

    @Lindsay, good luck with the exam and hope to see you next year.

    @sil, I’m not sure I am the best one to answer that since this will be my first FTU. Both will offer quality speakers on a variety of topics, but there will be some different speakers/topics at each. Maybe wait until the FTU schedule is out before deciding? Perhaps that will help. I think a draft of the Chicago Seminar schedule is already out.

    @Singapore Flyer, sorry it is not in a convenient spot for you. Hope to see you if you decide to go.

    @Vikas, no problem and happy to hear you are going!

    @arjun, ha ha. Love it. 😉 Hope your GF comes. I hear there will be newbie geared sessions and more advanced sessions as well.

    @Dan, ha ha. Understandable…..just this one.

  4. Why does this stuff always gets scheduled when I am away on vacation?.. Oh, that’s right, cause I am on vacation a lot 🙂

  5. I won’t be able to make it this year, but would love to attend next year. For future planning….is it always the last weekend in April, or do you know the dates for 2013?

    • @Char, sorry to hear you can’t make it this year. I believe the dates are tied to the dates of the Freddie Awards which I believe are historically the last Thurs of April, so it should fall the last weekend of April.
