At the Chicago Seminars last weekend, Scott gave two presentations:

  • Airbnb Mastery
  • Sweetspots 2017

I published the Airbnb Mastery slides yesterday below I’ve shared the slides from the Sweet Spots 2017 talk for the people in attendance and those who couldn’t make it.

Many of the sweet spots mentioned in these slides come from the post How to Book a RTW Trip in 2017. Use These Underpriced Awards Around the World. That post is a list of award prices arranged by region. Many of the prices are links that lead to a full post explaining a time Scott or myself booked the award for ourselves or a MileValue Award Booking Service client.
