Of the 2012 show, Co-Executive Producer Richard Beckman said, “The challenge for us honestly was not about topping last year. . . . But I think that this show has more of a continuum of great production values from start to finish than we managed last year. Billboard is an incredibly powerful brandÂ—18 years old, still the bible of the industryÂ—and I wanted to create an event that celebrates that and articulates that and enables us to grow to a place where the product we put onstage. . . “
