The FTU Seattle 2019 schedule has been released, and I’m super excited. On the roster of speakers are 12 of the brightest bloggers, travel writers, and industry experts from around the world. I love that the list isn’t the same speakers you’ve heard present over and over again at miles and points conferences. And if you haven’t signed up already, there’s a $25 off FTU promo code that is good through February 17, 2019.
FTU Seattle 2019 Schedule
The FTU Seattle 2019 schedule is jam-packed with travel knowledge that will improve your vacation experience. The FTU team has assembled a diverse speaker list that includes popular names you read on a regular basis, as well as talent will cover topics you may not have thought about previously.
Friday, March 8, 2019
Since the conference starts early Saturday morning, many people will arrive on Friday. This is an excellent opportunity to meet people in the lobby that share the same travel passion as you do.
For the lucky 75 who register first, their registration will include a complimentary Thai dinner. This will be your chance to interact with the FTU staff, speakers, and select attendees in a more intimate setting.
Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10, 2019
Saturday and Sunday will be full days of learning, networking, and sharing of fun travel stories.
Registration begins at 8:30 am each morning and the first sessions start at 9:00 am. Lunch is included in your registration fee. Each day ends with a moderated session where the audience can ask questions to the speakers.
I’ll be speaking twice on Saturday – once before lunch and a second time after lunch. Come by and say hello, even if you don’t plan on sticking around for my entire presentation.

Where is FTU Seattle?
The FTU Seattle 2019 travel conference is held at the Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center. TripAdvisor rates this hotel four stars with almost 2000 reviews.
FTU has secured a group rate of $105 per night + taxes for the event. Book directly online, or call 1-800-HILTONS and mention group code “FTE.” To secure this pricing, you must book by February 14, 2019.
This hotel is the closest hotel to the airport and offers a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (and vice versa). You can also take the light rail for a couple of dollars and it might be quicker since there will be so many people attending the conference.
