If you've purchased tickets to see a headliner performance or production show on the Las Vegas strip, chances are good that Entertainment Benefits Group played a role in that transaction.
EBG, one of the largest privately held travel and entertainment providers in the country, is responsible for selling millions of tickets each year for myriad performances in Orlando, New York City and Las Vegas.
Among the ticket "products" that Entertainment Benefits Group sells locally are some of the biggest names to grace area marquees, including music legends Celine Dion, Elton John and Rod Stewart, who perform at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace; and comedy stars Tim Allen and David Spade, who play at The Venetian.
It also sells tickets to the popular production shows "Jersey Boys," "Jabbawockeez," "Love," "Le Rêve," "O" and "Mystère," among dozens of others; and to numerous attractions throughout Southern Nevada - Shark Reef, Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, Pole Position Raceway and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas among them. Meanwhile tour packages, such as those offered by Maverick Helicopters, Open Top Sightseeing, ATV Action Tours and Pink Jeep Tours, can also be purchased through the company.
Founded in 2001, Entertainment Benefits Group's business initially focused on providing to corporations specially designed entertainment benefits programs, which are used to reward and retain workers. Such programs can include exclusive offers and discounted pricing for theme park tickets, hotel stays, concerts and other events.
"We started the company with the idea to provide perks for large organizations to offer their employees a benefit," explained Brett Reizen, Entertainment Benefits Group's founder, president and CEO. "There wasn't a company out there that provided special offers not available to the public for employees to access for exciting things like entertainment, attractions, movies, shows, travel. So we created that program."
