The CharlotteDO for #milemadness is taking place on Saturday May 10th at the Hyatt House, address below:
HYATT house™ Charlotte Center City
435 East Trade Street Charlotte, NC 28202
I keep on including the address because there is another Hyatt a few blocks away and I hope if I repeat it enough times I will actually turn up at the correct location….
I tried my best to keep the numbers low for this event, but when we consider the presenters who are coming, and the chance to socialize with like minded people interest was incredibly high, and the numbers did creep up a little beyond our initial plans, all told we should have about 115 people attending the CharlotteDO. I have never attended a miles/points gathering, with the exception of meeting MilesAbound, The Miles Professor, Jeanne from Heels First , and Kathy from Will Run for Miles so I don’t know what people might ‘expect’ this event to be like.
My hope, is that it will be a fun, friendly experience where we can share ideas at all levels, and I really want to focus on what I call ‘off stage’ interaction. We are putting together a schedule now for presentations, but I think the best part of this event will be chatting off script and really getting to know one another.
This post is intended to get the ball rolling on that, with so many people arriving there is a good chance you will be at CLT airport with fellow attendees, so you could connect here to discuss things like:
- Carpooling to the hotel (Charlotte has both Uber and Lyft services – feel free to leave your signup codes in the comments)
- Dinner plans for early arrive-rs or those staying later on Sunday. I personally am leaving for CLT for an 8am Sunday flight and happy to ride back in the morning with anyone doing the same. Those that aren’t leaving so early might want to talk about brunch plans or whatnot.
A schedule should be up soon, we are just pinning down the proper flow to the day. If you have any questions that seem unclear, please feel free to leave a comment also and I’ll get it resolved. Look forward to meeting you all in Charlotte soon! PS – we are totally sold out, so if you missed out on the ticket sales, I’m sorry, but we will have to see you next time.
