The swag has been ordered, the menu set, dinner reservation made- let’s do this! FT4RL DFW is just one week away. If you were on the fence about coming, now’s the time to act. The event is close to sellout but a couple of tickets are still available here.
If you’ve never been to an FT4RL here’s the elevator pitch:
FT4RL is the first seminar for frequent travelers (and those who wish to be) specifically tailored to the needs of families. The speakers at FT4RL are all parents who, while having different modes and methods, share one belief:
Travel with kids is not only possible, but necessary. By sharing the world with our children, we expand both their minds and our own, creating a lifetime’s worth of wonder that can come no other way.
9:30-9:45: FT4RL: State of the Hobby
9:45-10:45: Rich Kerr from Travel Hacking 101 on miles and points for 4 or more. A topic dear to his heart now that he’s a family of 4! Rich is a senior writer for The Points Guy and also is resident miles expert at TravelingDad.com.
10:55-11:55: Mom of 4 Toni Southam on Camp Mom- solo parent long term travel with kids. Toni just spent two months with 4 under 10 in Europe so she knows her stuff! And I won’t even start about the time she hiked the Inca trail pregnant…
1:10-2:10: Kenny Burrows from Miles4More on Getting Back to Nature on Miles and Points. AT FT4RL 2 Kenny demonstrated how he got PAID $1200 for a year’s extensive travel with a family of 4. Best mic drop I’ve ever seen.
2:20-3:20: I’m doing a session this time! Hotel Points Alternatives- for trips where the Hyatt just isn’t gonna cut it. I’ll be sharing tips and tricks I use to save up to 90% on lodging all over the world.
3:20-3:40: Afternoon Break
3:40-4:40: Jason Steele, senior writer on The Points Guy among many mainstream publications, on the ins and outs of Southwest Rapid Rewards. With all the focus on lie flats and Krug Champagne I thought it would be useful to have Jason cover a program we can all actually use!
4:40-5:00: Ask the Speakers
My favorite part: the social events specific to attendees including a Friday happy hour meetup and a Saturday night dinner. For Friday night I’m partnering with Rich and his Travel Hacking 101 Facebook group. Rich throws a terrific happy hour and FT4RLers are guaranteed a ticket. Saturday night’s dinner will be for FT4RLers (and their families) only.
A VERY few tickets are left for Friday night’s happy hour only as well via the event link.
