Photos & Highlights From a Fabulous Day of  T.R.A.F.F.I.C East Pre-Show Networking at Fort Lauderdale Beach Saturday

The flock of T.R.A.F.F.I.C. early birds continued to grow Saturday on a gorgeous day at the Ritz Carlton Hotel at Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida. The conference doesn't officially gets underway until this afternoon (Sunday, Oct. 21) but dozens of attendees came to town early to enjoy a couple of days of preshow cabana and poolside networking.

After spending a beautiful day by the pool and cabanas, Saturday evening was open for people to enjoy the pleasant surroundings, all within walking distance of the Ritz. Most formed groups of various sizes to sample the many restaurants nearby. DNForum.com owner Adam Dicker hosted several dozen guests for a big dinner at Shula's on the Beach (a very pleasant repeat of one of the most memorable events from last year's conference week).

The dinner hosted by Adam Dicker ended with everyone 
gathering for a group photo to commemorate a great night.

Though the Dicker dinner ran for three and a half hours many in this crowd had no interest in calling it a night when it was over. Thanks to PPX International Chairman Gregg McNair, there is always an entertaining place for everyone to regroup late and hang out together for as long as they like. Each night McNair traditionally throws open the door to his suite to anyone who wants to drop in for some quality late night conversation with like minded people. 

Above: Diana Jackson and Bob Olea were among those visiting Gregg McNair's suite last night - always the most popular after hours spot in whatever town Gregg happens to be in at the time!

Below: Youve heard the expression "too many cooks in the kitchen" - well, not in this kitchen! These "cooks" would be welcome behind the kitchen sink any time. A little before midnight last night Gregg McNair (front left) was surrounded by eight kitchen helpers - Judi Berkens (front center), Christian Calvin (front right) and in the back row (L to R) Frank Schilling, Ammar Kubba, Russ Goodwin, Andee Hill and Kimberly Howard

The T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East conference officially gets underway today (Sunday, Oct. 20) with Registration opeing at 12 Noon, a Cabana Party scheduled from 12:30-4:30pm and the Opening Night Cocktail Party getting underway at 5:30pm. I'll have photos and highlight from all of today's (and tonight's) activity for you in my next post from Fort Lauderdale Beach Monday.
