Ever read an article and wish you could ask the author a question, but maybe you’d prefer to ask in private – rather than broadcast it to the entire internet? You’re not alone. Savvy travel, turning points into incredible trips and all the other things that sound too good to be true really aren’t. They’re real, just a bit complicated. This May I’m excited to offer my very best tips and tricks (some which aren’t ever going on the internet) at ZorkFest in Las Vegas. And yes, even if you’re not IN Las Vegas already, it’s probably worth a short flight or drive to learn how to travel like royalty for the rest of your life!

ZorkFest is a weekend long festival dedicated to teaching people how to save big on travel, use points for aspirational travel experiences, gamble like a professional Vegas high roller and mingle with likeminded people who love to explore the world. I’ll be sharing insights into many travel, deals and points topics and will be available to chat and help you maximize whatever travel feat your attempting to pull off. In addition, there will be a long list of celebrated speakers (far more fun than I am), which you can view here. Interested in what is actually on the table to learn over the weekend? The event schedule is here. There are even some charity craps tournaments, featuring world famous gamblers and personalities, if that’s your sort of thing too.

VIP tickets include an amazing dinner and the first person to use the code ZORKVIPGILBERT gets to sit next to me (it’s a punishment, not a prize) at the dinner with all the other speakers and VIPS.

ZorkFest will take place in easy to reach Las Vegas on May 26th at Treasure Island Casino. I’ve highlighted plenty of deals to Vegas starting at $100 round trip, so no excuses! There will be a complimentary cocktail hour the evening before and a VIP dinner featuring yours truly for those who reserve VIP “high roller” tickets. There will also be some extra sessions on Sunday May 27th. If you can only be there one day, make it Saturday. If you can make it a weekend, stay Friday May 25th – May 27th and jet off mid day Sunday. There are different price levels for tickets, and the “high roller” package includes dinner with speakers, not to mention a mimosa brunch on Saturday morning and other goodies. All tickets include a complimentary Friday night cocktail reception sponsored by Gogo in flight wifi and access to all events and speeches. And yep, I’m totally happy to answer any questions afterward too.

Tickets start at $200 for the weekend, with the early bird discount. Don’t hesitate. I honestly believe spending $200 to attend the event will save you thousands of dollars this year alone, let alone down the line as you take on the best practices for finding deals, points sweet spots, maximizing your credit card portfolio and learning how to get casino comps. $200 includes Friday night cocktail reception, all Saturday events, lunch and more. There’s even a cash bar open during all sessions, so if you get tired of hearing me or another speaker flounder on – or more likely realize you’ve been doing it so wrong, for so long – you can drink your sorrows away mid speech. You can buy tickets here. High roller tickets are $325 and include all the VIP elements, including reserved seating. If you prefer to buy the cheapest ticket, you can add a la carte extras as you go. You can save $10 by using code ZORKGILBERT at check out. See ya in May!
