Fun, Fountains & Friends: Pre-Show Photos & Highlights from T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas 

The 2013 T.R.A.F.F.I.C Las Vegas conference gets underway today under blue skies at the beautiful Bellagio Hotel. Diana and I were among many who got into town a day early to get settled in and enjoy the many pre-show networking opportunities. I also wanted to get some advance photos so I could set the stage for you before the curtain goes up on the highly anticipated event that will run through Saturday morning.

Tuesday's pre-show activity at the Bellagio was centered around the hotel's four fabulous swimming pools, seen in this view from our room on the 14th floor. At ground level, directly below us, T.R.A.F.F.I.C. welcomed early arrivers at their cool and comfortable cabanas (seen below) that look out on the spectacular pools and fountains. 

The bulk of the the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. crowd will arrive this afternoon and will spend their day visiting old friends and making new ones in and around the cabanas. The conference twill then get into full swing with the Opening Night Cocktail Party this evening (running from 5:30-7:30pm). 

In the shot below show hostess with mostest Barbara Neu (lower left) was, as always, on hand to extend a warm welcome to guests who dropped by the cabanas Tuesday to get a jump start on the big week ahead.

In the photo below - inside one of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. cabanas, show co-founders Rick Schwartz (at left) and Howard Neu (at right) visited with Australia's Michael Gilmour from ParkLogic.com (2nd from left) and DNForum.com owner Adam Dicker (2nd from right). Michael and Adam will both be among the speakers featured this week (you can see the full show schedule here). 

The Bellagio Hotel is actually an eye popping city within a city with its own great restaurants, shops and attractions at every turn. As the sun began to set Tuesday evening Diana and I joined Rick, Howard and their wives for dinner at the Bellagio's Olives Restaurant

Lovely ladies Barbara Neu, Alina Schwartz and Diana Jackson at dinner Tuesday night.

After dinner we, we walked over to the new Hyde nightclub (also located inside the Bellagio) that offered a perfect place to view the best free show in Las Vegas - the Bellagio's world famous dancing fountains. Every 15 minutes, the fountains erupt in a joyous choreographed dance perfectly timed to a classic song. Every song and dance is different and the water often flies as high as the Bellagio's towering rooftop!

The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas registration desk will open today at 12 noon local time. You will find it under the Registration 4 sign in the Spa Tower at the Bellagio

The Bellagio provides a stunningly beautiful conference backdrop and everything is in very close proximity to the registrant's rooms. After dinner last night I walked through the facilities tat show goers will be enjoying this week. 

The gorgeous room above is where tonight's T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Opening Night Cocktail Party will be held. Below you see the main meeting room where registrants will sit in on talks and panel sessions featuring many domain industry leaders. The show's expansive dining room is located right next to this conference hall.

The forecast is calling for perfect weather in Las Vegas this week and with the industry's best and brightest gathered in one phenomenally attractive place, T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas 2013 in poised to give its guests a perfect conference experience. Tomorrow morning I'll have all of the opening day (and night) photos and highlights for you in this column.
