The 14th Annual Chicago Seminars - September 20-22, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency ORD

Chicago Seminars Takes Flight to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago on September 20-22, 2024
https://chicagoseminars.org

Buckle up, points and miles enthusiasts! The Chicago Seminars @ the Holiday Inn — the pioneering event that has been bringing the award travel community together since 2010 — is charting a new course. In 2024, we're touching down at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago.

After a memorable stint at the Holiday Inn, we're upgrading the venue. Our mission stays the same: to connect passionate travelers from around the globe to learn about points and miles while rallying around some really great causes. And yes, for those wondering, this is the same landmark event that was at the Holiday Inn for over a decade.

Date: September 20-22, 2024
Location: Hyatt Regency Chicago O'Hare

What's on the Radar?

Expect a turbocharged experience with amazing speakers, enlightening sessions, and more opportunities to network with fellow travel aficionados. Whether you're a seasoned flyer or just starting your journey, Chicago Seminars is your gateway to leveling up your points, miles, and travel knowledge.

Why the Move?

We heard your feedback from past years loud and clear. While the Holiday Inn has been the backdrop to countless cherished memories, the call for an upgrade was unmistakable — not just for a more contemporary setting but also for a venue that's in line with many participants' loyalty goals.

Plus, with the Holiday Inn asking for significantly more money to host the same event, we found that we could significantly upgrade our venue for marginal cost. Even better, the Hyatt Regency is located much closer to the Chicago O'Hare airport and operates shuttles every 15 minutes.

Don't Miss Out!

Mark your calendars for September 20th-22nd. Stay tuned for more details, including a lineup of speakers, engaging sessions designed to elevate your points game, and networking opportunities that could lead to unlocking new creative ways to earn points and miles.

Early bird tickets are available now for $299 until May 31. For updates and to secure your spot, visit chicagoseminars.org.

Cost

We understand that the cost has increased from last year. Please remember prices of goods and services have increased tremendously in the past years. Our previous venue had dramatically increased the cost in contract negotiations, which made this move the best option. We have worked diligently to manage costs for this two and a half day event while providing an excellent attendee experience. Please remember all organizers and volunteers are unpaid and all profits generated will be donated to charity. Attendees will now be able to redeem 8,000 Hyatt points per night as well.

About the 14th Annual Chicago Seminars

Founded by Rick Ingersoll and Win Schaeffer in 2010, and nurtured by long-time organizer Howie Rappaport, Chicago Seminars has blossomed into the premier event for sharing knowledge and strategies about maximizing points and miles. With a steadfast focus on community and connection, Chicago Seminars has empowered countless travelers to turn their dreams into reality.

This is the FlyerTalk thread discussing the host property.

HYATT AT ORD (CHICAGO O'HARE) - URGENT

Since the posts are almost a quarter century old, any updates would be most welcome.

In a few months, there could be a few hundred new updates for HR-ORD, ranging from the standard rooms in the old wing to the updated Presidential suites in the new wing.

Someone needs to open a new FlyerTalk (FT) Master Thread on this property.

I've stayed there a few times and I do have a certain love for the 1970s Hyatt atrium design properties. Admittedly I'm probably in the minority with this opinion. The renovated rooms are decent, the unrenovated rooms not so much. Breakfast is okay. Anyway if anyone is attending this event for the "luxury" hotel experience they are missing the point.
