Next month will bring the 9th annual Chicago Seminars back to Elk Grove Village, Illinois (right outside of Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD)), the largest and longest running gathering of points and miles enthusiasts in the world.

There will be over a dozen speakers covering various topics, and we've even set up several “Ask Me Anything” sessions so that you can get your specific questions answered.
