Bud Light Hotel By The Numbers: What It Takes To Stage An Event So Big It Spans Two Ships

From Anheuser-Busch:

ST. LOUIS, --The hotly-anticipated Bud Light Hotel will open its doors tonight, but the construction has been underway for the four-day celebration of football, music and entertainment for nearly two weeks.

The brand-new cruise ship that will house nearly 3,000 Bud Light guests during football's biggest weekend docked at pier 88 on the Hudson River yesterday, just in time for football's biggest weekend. Here is a "by the numbers" snapshot of some of the elements involved in the staging of Bud Light Hotel New York:

  • 2: ships (a brand-new cruise ship and the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum)
  • 4: days and nights of exclusive parties and VIP concerts at Bud Light Hotel
  • 11: number of musical acts confirmed to perform at Bud Light Hotel, including Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, The Roots and Fall Out Boy
  • 13: days it took to transform the full event space into the Bud Light Hotel
  • 45: bars and restaurants open to Hotel guests throughout the weekend
  • 1,500: man-hours required to turn the two ships and surrounding space into Bud Light Hotel New York
  • 1,900: staterooms on the cruise ship
  • 4,000: approximate number of guests attending Bud Light Hotel nightly events
  • 300,000: square feet of event space at Bud Light Hotel

As part of the makeover that changed two ships into Bud Light Hotel New York, the brand constructed the Bud Light Hotel Amphitheatre – a heated concert venue across the street from the Intrepid that will host the weekend's nightly concerts and parties – and the Bud Light Hotel Lounge – a two-level, 1,500-person venue adjacent to the Intrepid – that will house hospitality activations during the day as well as late-night events.
