According to the organizers, tickets will be on sale very soon for THE must attend frequent flyer event of the year the 2015 Chicago Seminars. This year it will be 16-18OCT and will again be at the same Holiday Inn Elk Grove Chicago as last year.

Now here is the deal, the host hotel rooms tends to sell out FAST. How fast? Like in a day or so as so many want to stay at the host location for convenience.

But according to some in the event thread, booking for the weekend IS now open if you call either the 877 number or the direct number to the hotel. You can compare LAST YEAR’S rate and if you want breakfast included or not. 🙂

I will be again speaking about Delta and helping out where they need me and very likely hanging out all weekend in and around Shelby Campbell’s restaurant. Please make sure to say hello or ask questions or just hang out. It really is a fun weekend of all things points and miles. – René

  1. hanging out in the restaurant would be much better than the noisy bar where nobody can hear anything. last year was a bit of a challenge 🙂

  2. Thank you, Rene, – just called the reservation line, mentioned I am booking with the event – they have event code “CHS” – for Chicago Seminar that is, – and got $84/night + tax and breakfast included (that last one I think is my gold membership perk with Holiday Inn).

    Does the event end afternoon of Sunday 18OCT so people leave Sunday night or does it go all Sunday and better leave Monday morning?

  3. Rene, I loved Thursday night last year, I just couldn’t see past the ball cap beside me or hear at the opposite end of the table. LOL
