Art Basel 2013 - Start planning now!

Each year during the 1st week of December, Miami is the epicenter of the modern and contemporary art world. During those four days in 2013, Art Basel Miami will return to town, bringing with it an estimated 50,000 collectors, artists and gallery owners from around the globe to celebrate creativity and stunning innovation in the Wynwood District and beyond.

If your goal is to participate in this exciting art show, then now is the time to start looking for event locations in Miami for your function. Most event space in Miami is booked up many months in advance of Art Basel, so it is important to lock down a space as soon as you know the date that you want to hold your event.

Booking early will also allow you to choose from the best event locations in Miami versus having to settle for what is left. By far one of the best locations for an Art Basel Miami event is Soho Studios, which is located in the city's vibrant and exciting Wynwood Art District. Soho Studios is a huge, 70,000-square-foot building with high ceilings and flexible floor plans that can be configured to meet the specific needs of your function and is perfect for any Art Basel Wynwood event.

Soho Studios has hosted other Art Basel events in the past, including two of the world’s largest contemporary art fairs, PULSE Miami and SCOPE Miami. While this huge facility with its industrial detailing is a perfect showcase for big art fairs, it is also a multi-use site that can work for many different events, including concerts, seminars, meetings and parties. Soho Studios can also be used as a photography, television and film studio. Many have used Soho as a space to create videos and other media for Art Basel events.

Every year, Art Basel Miami grows bigger and bigger and adequate space for events becomes harder to come by. Art Basel Miami 2013 should be no different. That is why smart event planners will begin making plans early and booking event space Miami as soon as possible for their Art Basel events.

South Florida honey makes Wynwood sweet

Honey is a delicious natural sweetener. This delightful gift from one of nature’s queens is surprisingly low in calories and super good for you. Honey can help ease a sore throat, soften dry patches on skin and soothe a sun burn. Studies have shown that eating honey from a local source can help ease the pain of allergy sufferers by building a tolerance to local pollen. Bees are they only insects in the world that that produce a food supply humans can eat. Bees are truly amazing!

Honey is also pretty tasty and local honey is usually the tastiest. One South Florida beekeeper is keeping the Wynwood District Pretty Sweet. Meet Ian Wogan of South Florida Raw Honey. His backyard beehives produce about 200 gallons of honey a week. He started out by giving the honey away and now it’s become a full fledged business. “To see it grow into something that's becoming a business is not surprising, just not expected," Wogan told South Florida News Chanel WPLG. And business is booming! He started out selling to Wolf’s Wine in Coral Gables and the “buzz” spread from there and now he supplies South Florida Raw Honey to Sustain Restaurant in Mid-Town and the Wynwood District’s Panther Coffee.
