ZorkFest (casino & travel loyalty) - Atlantic City - December 1-2, 2017

So,

I wasn't going to start a thread about ZorkFest, since but then this happened. At least, I thought it was right to provide my side of the narrative.

ZorkFest is about travel loyalty and casino loyalty. It brings together two areas of interest of mine and I have always believed that many of the concepts are complimentary. I have been a huge fan of the Gaming Loyalty Programs forum on FlyerTalk and have been contributing there continuously since the beginning.

I believe that the ZorkFest website provides most of the information necessary, but just to highlight a few points :

- With a promo code and registration before November 1st the price becomes $115 (including lunch and a drinks reception).
- We have secured good room rates (for a weekend) for $99++
- The program runs from approximately 9 am to 5.30 pm on Saturday. Sessions are 45minutes each. You DO NOT have to attend all sessions. You can mix&match whatever sessions interest you. Each 45-minute time slot will offer two sessions. One on maximizing value in a casino, and one session dedicated to travel and rewards. Pick whichever is of more interest to you.
- This links up with another (free) social event on Saturday evening for a big AC FB group
- Those who register before November 1st have a chance to win Caesars Diamond Status (five will win, terms and conditions apply).

You can find promo codes from two of the speakers here and here.

ZorkFest is a passion project of mine. It is NOT a not-for-profit or a charity event. Though, I do not really expect this first event to be profitable. I always wanted to see if there was interest for this type of event. It's different than other travel loyalty/frequent flyer events. The event happens to be relatively convenient to New York and Philadelphia.

That's my story! (Well, actually, THIS IS MY STORY!)

Looks interesting. Seth is always a wonderful addition to a speakers line up. May take a drive there. Not interested in gambling at all as I think gambling is a waste of money but I'm sure I'll pick up some tips from the speakers that are for us non gamblers.

Thank you. We tried to create a program where you could just focus on Travel Loyalty, Casino Loyalty or both. Very easy to mix&match sessions that are of interest.
