FEVO Fest 2022 Recap
FEVO Fest 2022 was one for the books! This year’s event was our third FEVO Fest, but quickly became first in our hearts thanks to the beautiful Miami Beach breezes, beverages and vistas. Upon arrival at the iconic Fontainebleau, guests knew they were in the right place the moment they caught sight of the FEVO-branded McLaren.
Once inside the doors, our exclusive check-in desk made getting to the room a (sea)breeze. The welcome event on La Côte Lawn was packed with anticipation and the chance to catch up with friends new and old. Also on the ticket: a variety of lawn games along with complimentary services including hair, nail, and makeup — and, of course, a wide array of delectable bites and bevs.
Night One began with a decadent dinner at Cecconi’s in Soho Beach House. We sipped cocktails and enjoyed modern Italian fare among the trellises and tealights in one of Miami Beach’s most romantic dining rooms. But dinner was just the beginning — Havana Nights, set on the ocean-front lawn of Fontainebleau, drew in guests with Afro-Cuban rhythms of the Celia Cruz Experience band, feathered dancers and the scent of smoke from a hand-rolled cigar.
On Day Two, we made our way back to the site of Havana Nights, which had been transformed into a relaxing open-air breakfast by the sea—complete with crave-able breakfast goodies, plenty of coffee and even on-site chair massage services.
Of course, the journey from breakfast on Ocean Lawn to the Glimmer Ballroom terrace featured some unique FEVO touches.
FEVO Fest Sessions in Glimmer Ballroom were informative, insightful and inspiring! FEVO Founder and CEO Ari Daie kicked things off with a preview of what’s coming in the world of FEVO.
Rishad Tobaccowala presented perspectives on staying human in the age of data.
We heard from FEVO All Stars, Frances Traisman, Ben Conrad, Aaron Lampkin, and Valerie Tanaka, who were joined by our own Paige Farragut and Cara Leis to share their insights and best practices using our flexible platform.
We rounded out the morning by taking a moment to recognize FEVO power users Mitch Carefoot, Kurt Jory, Trevor Purvis, Liz McCloskey, Dan Stahl, Wade Graf, Gab Bendistis, James Darlington, Kelly Higginbotham, Dave Sibelman, Esther Chao, Alexa Fuentes, Quinn Branson, Matthew Kolena, Anthony Pontrelli, Andrew Clark, Justin Fallon, Sebastian Rivas and Ben Conrad.
Not Boring’s Packy McCormick started off our early afternoon sessions with his sharp business and technology insights.
Packy was then joined on stage by MoonPay’s Ivan Soto-Wright and FaZe Clan's Kai Henry to discuss all things Web3.
Our final session of the day was an inspiring conversation between FEVO Founder Ari Daie and Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian!
What better way to unwind after a morning of informative panels than a pool party? A Riviera Pool Party to be precise, featuring free-flowing cocktails, fresh-caught seafood and pure, unadulterated cabana living!
The final evening of FEVO Fest 2022 was inspired by former guests of the iconic Fontainebleau, the Rat Pack. Our Old Blue Eyes Ball at Scarpetta had exquisite Italian fare, paparazzi (of course), live entertainment with magicians, live portraiture and did we mention fireworks?!?!
Surely you didn’t think FEVO Fest would end without a rollicking club night? This time, we took over David Grutman’s world-famous LIV Nightclub. Bottles were popped. Moves were busted. Legends were made. 'Nuf said.
Huge thanks to all our valued partner, guests and staff for making this year's event better than ever! 🤩 See you at FEVO Fest 2023!
