    I was unable to watch the live events on Monday and Tuesday ( I had registered) due to work constraints. Will these be offered in a video that I can watch?

    Thank you,

    HI Wendy & Staff

    I would like to know whether any of the sessions will be available to view after they air.
    Friday evening is a challenge for me because of traditional dinners we have that evening.
    And the subject matter of that discussion is of particular interest because of the host of
    points we have been hoarding during the last two years. Also, it was Wendy’s column
    some 12 years ago in Conde Nast that got me going into what my wife and daughters
    frame as my points obsession, until they ask for them.
    Looking forward to learning more.



    1. Carolyn Spencer Brown

      Hi, Harry, sorry we missed your question! See above for the way to access the videos. And thanks…. Carolyn
