ZorkFest 2021 Tickets are Now On Sale

I’ve been mentioning this in the MilesTalk Facebook group for a while now, and tickets are finally on sale.

This December 17th and 18th, 2021, sees another edition of the famous ZorkFest – a small conference devoted to travel and casino loyalty programs.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Now, I’m going to mention this here and again at the end:

The ONLY way to get access to the MilesTalk meetup is by using this link AND using the correct access code. There is no additional cost for the Meetup.

There is NO EXTRA COST to attend the MilesTalk MeetUp as long as you use this link and code. And please note that I am not making a dime from this event / ticket sales. It’s simply a great way to piggyback a long asked for MilesTalk Meetup on to a great event that I will also be speaking at 🙂

The link: https://buytickets.at/travelzork/570103/r/milestalk

The access code: TZ7777

Early bird pricing runs until September 30, 2021.

Now, the event:


What Exactly is ZorkFest?

It’s a conference that is focused on casino loyalty programs that also includes some general travel hacking.

At MilesTalk, I sort of cross over both segments. I’m 95% travel but with the Status Match Merry Go Round, I certainly cross a bit over into maximizing casino loyalty perks as well.

On the travel side of ZorkFest, you’ll also have Gilbert Ott from God Save the Points and Michele Robson of Turning Left for Less on the schedule. So, there’s definitely going to be some pure travel hacking sessions on the menu.

The rest will focus on how to maximize casino loyalty programs to make sure you get all the free rooms and comps possible, no matter your play level.

Where is ZorkFest being held?

At the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas. While you can certainly stay anywhere you would like, the ZorkFest crew has negotiated a screaming good deal at the Plaza and you’ll save a LOT of money in Ubers by staying there.

More details on the rates and extra inclusions for the Plaza rates are on the ticket page.

The MilesTalk Meetup

For the longest time, people have been asking for a formal MilesTalk Meetup. After all, we have 7,000 MilesTalkers in the Facebook group!

So, while it won’t be the last, it will be the only one for a while, so I hope you can make it 🙂

Remember to use both the link and promo code above to gain access to the Meetup. All you need is (at least) a base ticket to attend. It will be held in the evening on December 18th at the Plaza with complimentary beer and wine.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
