I'm working on a longer Frequent Traveler University LAX Takeaway post, but here's a little…
Mark your calendars because 2 more Frequent Traveler University (FTU) programs have just been announced.
When and where
Both FTUs will be held the weekend of December 5, 2014 to December 7, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
Because both events will be held at the same hotel, you may want to book your hotel room now.
You can book your room at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City under the group rate of $99 per night (excluding taxes) for single or double occupancy.

Over 600 people attended FTU Washington, DC 2013, but this year the FTU organizers plan an event almost twice that size.
