General Information about Celebrity for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.

Celebrity is a condition of fame accompanied by broad public attention that a person or a group of people can have at any moment of their lives. It is usually a result of the mass media attention given to people who, for various reasons – including wealth, talent in sports, or participation in the entertainment industry – might become famous and loved by millions of people worldwide. However, celebrity is not just about being famous; it implies a favorable public image too, and is usually associated with growing success rates over time. Yet, there are also people who become celebrities over a short period of time and/or by accident (the so-called “instant celebrities”). They usually get only transitional fame, mainly due to public hype or mass media attention. Such people are often labeled “B-grade celebrities.” Nowadays, there are also many internet celebrities, who don’t need the physical red carpet to enjoy their contemporary world fame.

Whatever their reason for becoming one, many celebrities pass through a grandeur stage, with some of them having marked difficulties in properly managing it. Being a celebrity has huge advantages though, including financial wealth and the ability to access things and persons that regular people usually cannot. However, celebrity often comes at a price: one’s psychological health and lifestyle may be severely challenged by being incessantly in the spotlight. Celebrities are highly influential and – by acting as role models – can have a great impact on regular people’s decision-making and choices.
