Once inside, you will be able to complete A Break from the Auction, To Your Very Good Health, A Permanent Break, Guest of Honor, and The Mysterious Mr. Reaper as well as interact with Margolis.

After this, you will have free access to head anywhere without anyone getting suspicious of you in any way. Moreover, you will be able to easily get near Novikov and eliminate him with relative ease.
Hitman 2016 Challenges: The Showstopper – Assassination

After reaching the third floor, you need to avoid the directions provided by the staff member and head inside the door located on your immediate left-hand-side.
