The 2019 TPG Awards will take place on December 9, and voting is well under way for the 20 Readers’ Choice honors we’ll be giving out this year. Eligible voters will automatically entered into a giveaway just for voting (this week’s prize is payment for the annual fee of one of your credit cards), and the grand prize is a VIP trip for two to New York City to attend the awards.

However, you now have a new way to pick up tickets to the show — through the Marriott Bonvoy Moments program.

Bidding is now open for two different packages that’ll get you into the star-studded event on the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan:

  • Exclusive access for two: Win a pair of tickets to attend the event, including a pre-awards cocktail hour, dinner during the ceremony, a musical performance by a soon-to-be-named special guest and a spot at the official after-party. There are seven of these available, with bidding for each starting at just 20,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. All seven auctions end Thursday Nov. 14.
  • Exclusive access for two plus a meet-and-greet with TPG himself, Brian Kelly: Win a pair of tickets to the event plus a chance to meet TPG himself for a tour of our new headquarters and a catered lunch. There are three of these available, with bidding for each starting at just 30,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. All three auctions end Wednesday Nov. 13.

Note that you must be 21 years of age or older to attend the TPG Awards, so keep that in mind before submitting your bid.
