The Milelion’s Monthly Miles Meetup is a place for miles enthusiasts to meet, mingle, make merry, and engage in various pieces of performance art.
I’m pleased to announce the details of the next meetup:
Date: Thursday, 20 June 2019
Venue: Lobby Lounge at Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre
Time: 7.00 pm till the intervals between awkward silences pass 10 minutes
Tickets will be available from 7 pm on Tuesday, 11 June 2019.
Tickets have historically been free, but due to no-shows and late cancellations at past events, there’s now an $8 fee per ticket . The $8 fee, less a $1.35 ticket charge by EventBrite, will be put into a central pool to order table snacks during the event- I don’t keep any of it.
This year, we’re doing something a bit different at the Monthly Milelion Meetups by inviting a different guest from the industry each month, someone who can share insights from the other side of the loyalty/hotel/airline/credit card table. It’s a chance to ask pressing questions, provide passive aggressive feedback and maybe get insider info, depending on how drunk we can get them.
- January guest: Kelvin Koh, Head of Grab Rewards
- February guest: Rohith Murthy, Founder of SingSaver
- April guest: Leonard Tok, Product Manager for OCBC VOYAGE
- May guest: Nicki Ramsey, CEO of CardUp
This month, we’re welcoming Joel Leong, Co-Founder of ShopBack.
