And we’re off!
More than 250 exhibitors have spent the past few days setting up shop in the Miami Beach Convention Center, and this morning the doors swung open to let in the first tranche of VIPs. Many more have arrived in the intervening hours. It feels buoyant in there, dealers switching between their iPads and cell phones and collectors, getting business done. Is it a success? It’s too soon to tell. For now we can just look at the art, which is not a bad position to be in. In the accompanying slide show, a quick trip around the fair.
We’ll have reports from Miami Basel and its satellite fairs throughout the week.
