"Invitation Consultants Featured in 2013 MTV VMA Celebrity Retreat™"

Tampa, FL, September 13, 2013

With 10.1 million viewers watching, the MTV Video Music Awards were one of the most talked about television events of the summer. Invitation Consultants, a leading retailer of invitations, stationery and personalized gifts said 'hello' to the stars of the VMAs with their fresh stationery designs, included in the show gift bags.

The 2013 MTV VMAs were broadcast live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on MTV on August 25. The show featured performances by Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke featuring 2 Chainz and Kendick Lamar, Kanye West, Drake, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Mary Lambert and Jennifer Hudson. Justin Timberlake also performed, bringing down the house with his 15 minute medley, including an NSYNC reunion, which preceded his acceptance of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Presenters included Jimmy Fallon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Selena Gomez.

Presenters and performers of the show received gift bags containing a variety of fabulous items, including a box of Invitation Consultants stationery designed exclusively for the event.

This is the second year that Invitation Consultants has designed for the MTV VMAs.

"We are positively challenged each year creatively to design for such an amazingly vibrant show. This year was no different." said Creative Director, Jennifer Reilly Kelmer. "The VMAs are a favorite event of ours!"
