Also, they even support the ability to bid live via the Internet, so no one can miss the opportunity to bid on jewelry, art objects, paintings, clocks, furniture and even wines.
This famous house has sold objects from Elizabeth Taylor, Elvis Presley, and Michael Jackson, among others.
There are more than 200 events held each year at the luxurious Beverly Hilton Hotel. This hotel is regarded as a kind of extension of the red carpet. This is probably one reason why the hotel is undoubtedly one of the places you should come to see and be seen.
The entire complex, which has all kinds of guest services including boutiques, restaurants, swimming pools, spas and fitness rooms, exudes style and luxury. This was distinguished by Conrad Hilton, when he opened the hotel in 1955.
Since opening in 2001 in Los Angeles, this theater (formerly known as Kodak Theatre) has been the venue of the Ceremony of Awards of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, becoming the first permanent home for the celebration of this event.
The architectural firm of David Rockwell was commissioned to design the impressive building, that is specially designed to host large events that can be broadcast live. Every detail has been cared for in this temple of film and culture, from the huge front door, up the spiral staircase five story that connects all the floors. Here, you can find portraits of famous actors and actresses who have won an Oscar. These include Marlon Brando, Grace Kelly, Jack Nicholson, Halle Berry and Julia Roberts.
But the newly baptized Dolby Theatre is not reserved exclusively for the celebration of the most important awards in the film industry. From its 3,332 seats, a privileged few were able to attend concerts of artists like Prince, Alicia Keys, Celine Dion, Elvis Costello and Stevie Wonder.

New airports, cruise terminals and hotels: Major projects promote New York and Los Angeles to visitors. While waiting for new tourist attractions, the U.S. cities earn billions.
From the bottom to the theme park, George Fertitta makes no great words: “We are number one in the U.S.,” trumpeted the head of the New York tourism organization, NYC & Company in Spring Pow Wow at the tourism fair in Los Angeles. New York is the most popular city destination for visitors from abroad. A total of 50.5 million came last year, visitors head to the East Coast metropolis.
Orlando stood at 54.3 million, but still has a smaller number of foreign guests. Also in other U.S. cities, they are taking up arms, which is a real competition for wealthy visitors.
“We have in recent years invested solely in downtown, 7 billion dollars in tourism,” said Carol Martinez, spokeswoman for the tourism offices in Los Angeles. Rossi Ralenkotter, chief of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, will have moved even more money. At $ 22 billion, he estimates the total. Behind such huge investments, more particularly of an economic calculation, visitors—especially the wealthy foreigners—put money into the cities, which is desperately needed in times of economic crisis.
So, New York has the ambitious goal in 2015 to earn 70 billion dollars (53 billion euros) per year from the tourists. Today, there are just 48 billion. There will be 30,000 new jobs that will be created in the same period.
