Hotel Grand Prize Giveaway Winner

Congratulations to Samir from Vancouver, BC, who is the winner of our grand-prize draw for accommodation at The Westin Harbour Castle for The Travel Summit 2024.

The Travel Summit 2024: New Grand Prize, Key Event Updates, and More! | Prince of Travel (5)

Here’s what Samir had to say about his journey with Miles & Points, and why he’s excited to attend The Travel Summit 2024:

I’m Samir! I’m a Software Engineer and the pursuit of Miles & Points has turned into a hobby of mine.

My journey started in 2016, when Chase launched the Sapphire Reserve. At this point, I’d redeem awards for domestic flights or budget-focused hotel awards. It all changed in 2022 when I had Chase Ultimate Rewards, American Express US Membership Rewards, and World of Hyatt points collecting dust from the pandemic, and I turned those into incredible experiences in Maui and Japan.

One of the key resources for booking these adventures was Prince of Travel. Leaning into Miles & Points communities like Prince of Travel has been a game changer for me – it has enabled me to travel more affordably, more often, and sometimes even bring friends along for free.

I plan to attend The Travel Summit to meet some familiar faces, make more connections in the Miles & Points community, and learn more tips & tricks. Excited for it!

We look forward to welcoming Samir and all guests to The Travel Summit 2024 later this month!

The #1 Event for Elevating Your Travel

The idea behind The Travel Summit was to create an event series where travellers from around the world meet to exchange new ideas, make new connections, and elevate their travel.

The Travel Summit is a gathering place for frequent travellers, first-time travellers, aspirational travellers, budget travellers, world travellers, and luxury travellers.

It’s open to anyone for whom travel is a core part of their identity, and who wishes to unlock the freedom of travelling the world on their own terms.

The Travel Summit is hosted by our team at Prince of Travel, where we believe that maximizing rewards points and loyalty programs is the best way to travel.

Thus, the event is geared towards helping attendees learn all of the best knowledge, tips, and strategies for travelling the world on points – all while exploring novel topics within the wider travel industry as a whole and how they shape each and every one of us as we discover the world.

Attendees will be able to attend keynote presentations with executives from major airlines and loyalty programs, as well as our charity partner Miles4Migrants.

Furthermore, you’ll also be able to choose from a number of breakout sessions spread across the weekend.

Each breakout time slot features one topic in each of our four tracks, styled under the broad themes of Miles & Points – The Points Beginner, Miles & Points – The Frequent Flyer, Travel Freedom – The Lifestyle Designer, and Travel Freedom – The Content Creator.

What’s more, there’ll be ample time in between agenda items for networking with your fellow guests, speakers, and sponsors, as well as a Saturday night evening party to keep the conversations flowing over drinks and music.

Stay tuned for more details to come around The Travel Summit 2024 as it all comes together.
