Confirmed: First Atlanta Blogger Meetup — March 2, 2020

Well, this is quickly snowballing into a nice event, as you now have an opportunity to meet several bloggers who write about travel, miles, and points on Monday, March 2, 2020 from 6:00 to 9:00 in the evening Eastern Standard Time — and this will be the first of what may become an ongoing tradition of meetups in Atlanta.

I was contacted recently by Stefan Krasowski of Rapid Travel Chai, who will be in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area and is available on Monday, March 2, 2020. Stefan will be in Atlanta to speak at the Travel & Adventure Show Atlanta on Sunday, March 1, 2020 from 2:15 to 3:00 in the afternoon on the topic of How to Travel Anywhere and Everywhere with Points. He expressed an interest of informally meeting with readers and frequent travelers starting on that evening.

This event coincides nicely with the Hops in the Hangar Meetup in Atlanta during this coming weekend on Saturday, February 29, 2020 and Sunday, March 1, 2020; so if you are attending that event with other members of FlyerTalk and will be in the Atlanta area during the day on Monday, you may want to join us.

Adam — who used to write for Point Me To The Plane and is based in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area, as am I — had communicated with me via e-mail messages almost four years ago with the possibility of doing something similar; and one of the topics we discussed is the possibility of loosely organizing an informal meeting where you can meet with both of us…

…but for a few reasons, that had not worked out. I reached out to him and hope that he will be able to attend.

Of course, BoardingArea bloggers who are not based in the Atlanta area — as well as bloggers who are not even affiliated with BoardingArea — are welcome to join us.

The venue is conveniently located near the interchange of Interstate 20 with Interstate 75 and Interstate 85. Attending this event will be of no cost to you — unless you are hungry or thirsty, in which case you may purchase food and beverages.

Please accept my apologies for not going further with this idea any sooner. Life simply got in the way — but I have always been interested in doing this; and feedback from readers of The Gate has been positive.

    Is this event just for bloggers or also for readers of your site?

    I wish I could attend. Hopefully I can attend the next one. Any chance of something similar in the Washington DC area?

      I will keep that in mind the next time I am in the District of Columbia metropolitan area, Barry Graham — although I have not been there in more than a year.
