"Travel is no longer just about 'going somewhere.' Coming out of such a long period of constraints and limitations, 2022 will be the year we wring every bit of richness and meaning out of our experiences," said Christie Hudson, senior PR manager for Expedia. More and more travelers are taking to the sky or hitting the road for travel experiences, such as vacations encompassing entertainment events. Hilton Grand Vacations Owners are no different, and they now have access to the newest benefit of timeshare: HGV Ultimate Access*.

With events ranging from intimate music performances with well-known artists through HGV Live! to the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, the one-of-a-kind golf event offered through HGV Presents, Owners can now infuse their vacations with unforgettable experiences. 

"I'm an 'experiences person.' I love to travel and try new things. I've never attended a golf tournament before, so I decided to try it out," said Debra L., a Hilton Grand Vacations Owner since 2004.

"With Hilton Grand Vacations, your entire experience — from the resorts to the events — is built around vacations. HGV wants you to have a memorable vacation," she said.

For people seeking travel experiences, the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions checks all the boxes: access to some of the most beloved celebrities in sports and entertainment, live music, incredible food and drinks and a community of like-minded travelers.

"There's nothing like this, where you get a chance to vacation, have fun and enjoy great entertainment. There's nothing else that even compares to an event like this," another attendee explained. 

Planning for the 2024 Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions is already in full swing. Members can check the website as they begin booking next year's vacations. 

For travelers who prefer getting up close and personal with their favorite music artists, HGV Live! treats Members to exclusive sit-down shows — with food and drinks, celebrity meet and greets and plenty of unscripted intimate crowd interactions. 

Carly Pearce, Boyz II Men, Lee Brice and Joey Fatone are just some of the artists who grace the HGV Live! stages and elevate travel experiences for Hilton Grand Vacations Owners. 

"It was nice to sit up front. The musicians were right there. The food was great. Everything was picture perfect," said Greg B., an Owner who attended a Carly Pearce show in Orlando. Owners often cite the intimate nature of the show as one of their favorite parts of their trip.

At a recent Lee Brice show, another Member explained what stood out the most about HGV Live! versus traditional concerts. "We thought it was a really special event to have it in such an intimate setting, and I feel like we got to see a cool side of him that not everybody would have had a chance to see if we had been at a different venue."

With a roster of more than 4,000 exclusive events annually, HGV Ultimate Access makes planning bucket-list-worthy travel experiences easy for Owners.

After the inaugural HGV Live! show featuring music artist Rodney Atkins, Amber M., an Elite Owner who co-owns her timeshare with her best friend, summed it up easily. 

"It was nice to get out and do something you wouldn't do every day. It was like a private party at the House of Blues — pretty cool."
