Hey guys and girls. My sincere apologies for not writing more on the blog as of late … but there’s a reason. A good reason (I hope).
As you may have figured out, I have been running point on PointsU for the last 2-3 months and while there have certainly been challenges, it has been rewarding! Today, I am pleased to announce that we are officially LIVE for the 3rd installment of PointsU!
PointsU will be happening on November 3-4, 2017 in Calgary and will be held at the In-Terminal Marriott at YYC. If you’ve been following along, I did a quick review of the hotel and I’m predicting that it’s going to be the best venue we have held a PointsU at! If you are an aviation fan like I am, you’ll marvel at the view of the tarmac you get from most of the hotel!
This conference is going to be different than the first two in that the sessions will be interactive. What does that mean? Well, instead of being told about what the experts do, we’re going to guide you through it … step-by-step. Imagine sitting in a room at a session called “How to Manufacture Spend” and actually walking through strategies on how to do it. Have a question during the session? Ask it right there and then and get immediate feedback!
We’re currently rounding up our speakers but suffice it to say, we’ll have some great ones! All the key Canadian Travel Hackers will be there, myself included.
Take a quick look at the video below if you aren’t clear about how it’s going to work:
The cost of the conference is $199 and will include breakfast and lunch on the day of the conference as well as the evening reception, hosted by the Marriott!
We are still in the midst of negotiating with sponsors but we have some exciting prizes lined up and while I can’t share with you what they are just quite yet, last year we had some amazing giveaways, including 25,000 SPG points, 10,000 SPG points and 15,000 Aeroplan miles!
If you are among the first 30 people that sign up, you will save $30 off the price of admission! That’s the deepest discount on the tickets you will see so if you plan on attending, jump on the offer!
You can sign up for the conference and find more information at www.PointsU.ca but also be sure to read about what the conference was like last year.
With this being in my back yard, I am really hoping to see a lot of my fellow Calgarians out to support the community while also learning a TON!
