The 2016 Billboard Music Awards was a big hit especially because of the new VIP packages available. Not only were guests able to witness the show, but they were able to participate in exclusive activities that truly made them feel like a VIP for the day. Take a look below at the incredible experience our guests were able to enjoy at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

Floor Seats

There’s nothing better than floor seats at the Billboard Music Awards – especially when your floor seats are close to the stage. For the show, the celebrities and Hollywood’s elite sat in the middle front section, as you could likely see when you watched the show on TV.

Our guests were able to sit in the middle back and front side sections, giving them amazing views of the celebrities and the performers. Those in the middle back section really had the best seats because they were directly in front of the middle stage that comes out into the audience, so our guests were able to see the performers pretty up-close and personal.

Most of our guests would agree that this is the coolest part of the entire experience. The rehearsal took place on Sunday before the show, and our guests were able to sit in the lower level section as the performers did a full run-through of their performances.

This is an exclusive event – only a couple of hundred people were in the building for this dress rehearsal. It was like a mini concert prior to the show!

Red Carpet Viewing

Our guests had the opportunity to feel like a celebrity for the day and walk the Red Carpet. They were then able to stand on a platform directly behind the media while celebrities walked the Red Carpet and did interviews.

It’s one thing to watch the interviews on TV; it another thing to stand behind E! News while stars give interviews. Overall, it’s a really neat experience that not too many people get to experience. Light appetizers and a bar were available as well.

Official After Party

After the show, our guests made their way to the Official After-Party hosted by Billboard. The awesome part? Bypassing everyone in line and going straight to the front to enter the party. Fast access certainly makes you feel like a VIP. Complimentary drinks were available until midnight, and to top the night off, Ludacris and 50 Cent performed. Plus, a few celebrities made appearances at the party, including the one and only Wiz Khalifa. This party was only for people 21 and over.

Hotel Accommodations

Hotel accommodations at the MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino were also available if guests so chose. The hotel resort features world-class accommodations, dining and entertainment options giving you the luxury and comfort you desire. It was about a 10-minute walk to arena, so its proximity was an added bonus.
