Photos & Highlights from the First Day of Pre-Show Networking at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East on Miami Beach  

On a picture perfect day on Florida's Miami Beach the 10th anniversary edition of the pioneering T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference unofficially opened today when early birds enjoyed the first of two days of pre-show cabana networking at the fabulous Fontainebleau Hotel

Above: T.R.A.F.F.I.C.'s Ray Neu & Barbara Neu ready to welcome conference early birds to pre-show cabana networking at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach this morning.

Below: Jose Vicente Gomar from Miami.land (left) and T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Co-Founder Howard Neu made a bee line for fresh coffee, danish and refreshments when the cabanas opened at 9am.

An ongoing procession of good food and fresh mojitos drew guests into the central cabana (surrounded by a crystal clear full circle pool) throughout the day, with networking continuing well past the scheduled 6pm closing time.

I have been to almost all of the more than two dozen T.R.A.F.F.I.C. shows held around the world over the past decade and I would have to say the Fontainebleau is the most stunning venue (in a long list of world class facilities) that they have visited to date. Truly a fitting location for the 10th anniversary edition of the iconic event founded in 2004 by Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu.

Above: Having a Fontaineblast today were (left to right) James Wester, Howard Neu, Eddie Sixto, Ron Jackson, Rick Schwartz and Jean-Noel Frydman.

Below: The guys above have to be wondering hw Ray Neu always attracts the pretty girls! Seated left to right (with Ray looking on) are Barbara Sixto, Diana Jackson, Barbara Neu and Carmella Savonello.

A second day of cabana networking gets underway Thursday morning (Oct. 30) at 9am and will run all day as T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East 2014 guests continue arriving from around the world. The conference officially begins with the traditional Welcome Cocktail Party at 5:30pm Thursday - a major league blowout that will be held on a gorgeous outdoor deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to the east and T.R.A.F.F.I.C.'s private cabana and pool effort to the west.

Below: Early birds came from near and far. Left to right are Truc Tran (Norway), Deepak Daftari (India), Tracy Fogarty (Domaing Holdings, Florida) and Jason Schaeffer (New Jersey, ESQwire.com).

The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East conference will continue through Sunday morning (you can see the full schedule here), when attendees will head home after the traditional Farewell Breakfast. Between now and then things will be rocking around the clock at the Fontainebleau. As we progress through the week I'll have daily photos & highlights in this column for you.

For those still on their way to Miami Beach, among the friends waiting to see you are (L to R) Negar Hajikhani (Sedo), Sevan Derderian (Uniregistry), Tessa Holcomb (Igloo.com) and Deepak Daftari.
