Celebrities are ordinary people who have managed to do memorable things. But they are ordinary people. This means that their needs, fears, and cravings are very similar to those of us, simple mortals. What changes is the harassment.
You want the celebrity to be comfortable, but — more importantly — you want your delegates to have a great experience. There is nothing worse than a celebrity primadonna going AWOL because their Salmon Tartare was salty or delegates getting treated as second class. Everyone was happy: delegates got their photos, the celebrity enjoyed the experience and the event finished early.
