|Update: Due to high demand for the event and a very limited capacity (just 6 seats, once myself and the guest are accounted for), I’ve decided it makes more sense to do this as a Zoom virtual event. See the details below.
Has it been more than a year since the last meetup? Apparently so. The last one took place in December 2019, when hope was high and life worth living.
But for those of you who don’t know, the Milelion’s Monthly Miles Meetup is a place for miles enthusiasts to meet, mingle, and swap mix tapes. I’m pleased to announce the details of the next meetup, which will be a virtual drinks event:
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Venue: Zoom Meeting
Time: 7.00 pm till 8.00 pm
Tickets are now available through the link below:
We invite a different guest each month to the Monthly Milelion Meetups, someone from the industry who can share insights from the other side of the hotel/airlines/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.
