Frequent Traveler University Washington, DC is May 6, 2023.

DC FTUs have been among our most popular events. Our prior DC event was in March 2020, the last weekend DC saw conferences for some time. This is our first East Coast community event since then. Let’s get back together!

We are getting fancy, too, holding it at the City Club of Washinton as a frequent flyer friend is a member. Business casual, they say, no t-shirts or shorts.
