Family Travel For Real Life

This is just a quick reminder that the Family Travel For Real Life conference is this coming Saturday August 23, 2014 at the Hyatt House Dulles Airport North. While we have had a great response thus far, there are still some tickets available if you are going to be in the area.

I will be talking about extended family travel, while a number of other experts cover everything from family award booking to how to earn enough points and miles for family travel. It is sure to be a great event and I know that everyone will learn a lot!

Dia The Deal Mommy has been nice enough to organize everything and between you and me, she has done a FANTASTIC job. Tickets are $59 for one or $99 for two and include the entire conference plus lunch and an afternoon snack. Many of the speakers will be staying at the hotel, so there will be plenty of time for socializing as well.

I know that everyone is working hard to bring the best and most relevant information to those who attend. If you are still on the fence, all I can say is that I would be attending even if I were not speaking. I believe it will be that good. The schedule is below. Hope to see you there!
