Concierge.com's insider take:

This early December, tropical offshoot of the contemporary art world's foremost schmoozefest had an inauspicious beginning—its 2001 debut was aborted in the wake of 9/11. But cynics who predicted the fair's demise were proved wrong the following year, when crops of Miami's cash-rich locals snapped up pricey canvases, installations, and sculptures from emerging and well-known artists. The Miami Beach Convention Center (1901 Convention Center Dr.) hosts the fair proper, with dealers from across the world shilling their wares, but it's the unofficial, heavily social offshoots that amp up the glitz, many of them parties and exhibitions helmed by Miami's homegrown answer to Charles Saatchi, developer Craig Robins (www.designmiami.com). The artists' enclave of Wynwood also hosts edgier, lower-budget events at the same time, which true art buffs might find more intriguing than the Armani-clad main events.
