+++Wow that was quick! The Head for Points Christmas party has now reached full capacity. Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket. We look forward to meeting you on the 6th December. Apologies to those who didn’t get a ticket this time.+++
You can book your ticket for the Head for Points reader Christmas party from 9am this morning.
As I wrote on Wednesday, I’m pleased that – after four years of pestering from readers about organising a get-together – we are holding the first Head for Points reader Christmas party on Tuesday 6th December.
We are taking over the Dry Martini bar at the Melia White House hotel. The White House hotel is an attractive 1930’s building situated just a few minutes walk from Warren Street, Regents Park and Great Portland Street tube stations.
This is a great opportunity for you to have a few pre-Christmas drinks and, more importantly, to meet fellow readers and to share your travel hints and tips – and perhaps even learn a few inside secrets that can’t be written about online.
Melia Hotels International is generously sponsoring the party and underwriting a large percentage of the drinks bill.
There will also be a prize draw on the night. One guest will win a very attractive prize from Melia – more details coming soon – and there will be a number of runner up prizes too.
Because we need to ensure that people who ask for tickets turn up, we are charging £15 for tickets. However, your £15 ticket covers unlimited house wine and beer between 6pm and 8pm. Soft drinks will also be available. We are not making a penny from this and indeed Melia Hotels International is footing the bulk of the cost. After 8pm, the bar will remain open for cash payments for anyone who wants to stay longer.
We honestly have no idea how popular the event will be but I hope that as many of you as possible can come along to meet Anika and myself and to talk miles, points, credit cards and travel with other readers. You might even win a prize!
Don’t be nervous about coming on your own. Frequent flyers are a friendly bunch and always happy to share details of their recent trips and miles-earning tips.
Click here to book your ticket from 9am. American Express is accepted.
We look forward to seeing you on the 6th.
