Photos and Highlights from Opening Night at the 2014 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East Conference at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach 

The 10th anniversary edition of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference got underway tonight with a scintillating opening night outdoor welcoming party at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. This after the day began with another round of pre-show cabana networking with coffee and danish already laid out for early birds at 9am.

Early birds could pick up a a cup of coffee and a danish before visiting the cabanas that circle the central serving station in the middle of T.R.A.F.F.I.C.'s  private pool at the Fontainebleau Hotel

By mid-day T.R.A.F.F.I.C. guests were arriving from around the world. Left to right above are Scott Smith, Diana Jackson, Barbara Neu, Gregg McNair, Judi Berkens & Michael Berkens.

At 4pm an orientation session for first time T.R.A.F.F.I.C. attendees was held in a Fontainebleau ballroom. A highlight was the first screening of a 20-minute film produced by Danny Pryor that covered the entire 10-year history of the pioneering domain conference.

At 5:30pm T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East 2014 officially got underway with a lavish opening night welcome party held on an outdoor deck overlooking the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. cabana and pool area on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The party featured a spectacular mix of live music, a seemingly endless buffet of great food and an assortment of delicious drinks.

On Friday the first full business day at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East will get underway at 9:45am (you can see the full schedule here). I'll have Friday photos & highlights for you in my next post from Miami Beach.
