IBMS Vegas 2016


The International Bikini Model Search International Finals is one of the hottest events of the year. You can not only see some of the most beautiful women in the world, but connect with some of the best model photographers  and modeling industry professionals in the country, too. The IBMS is a can’t-miss event.


The IBMS started with founders and husband-and-wife team Patrick and Elina McKinney. Unlike other modeling and industry conferences, every industry professional is open to attend. Models are welcomed regardless of size, ethnicity, or number of tattoos. The IBMS believes there are so many different types of beauty and celebrates women’s beauty at this event.

The IBMS is a popular event that often sells out. This year, from May 16-22 in Las Vegas, hundreds of models will convene at the International Finals Event.  Many of the models at the IBMS go on to successful modeling careers, like Playboy playmates Holly Wolf, Marissa Everhart, and Elsa Day. Numerous models have also been featured in other magazines like Maxim, Esquire, and Sports Illustrated.


Models and photographers can mingle and make connections to advance their careers. The IBMS has industry contacts that will give that extra spark to a model or photographer’s career. 90 percent of the models who attend the IBMS go on to being published in major magazines and gain more followers in social media.

Photographers get to show off their skills with many events at the IBMS , like  photo shoots in luxurious mansions and sporty shoots at the Las Vegas Speedway.  There are also many networking events to connect with other models, photographers, and stylists in the modeling industry. Classes will also be offered at this event to learn about the business of modeling and photography.


While the IBMS can help careers, it’s not all work. Guests can play during the IBMS by enjoying the many amenities offered during the IBMS event. Enjoy a Ravish Sands swimwear fashion show, a casino resort night,and enjoy theme parties every night.


The International Bikini Model Search is a fun event that will showcase the best models and photographers in the world. The IBMS is an event that guests won’t ever forget.
