We are not just another talent agency...we are your event partner
Is it expensive to go through this type of agency?
Not at all. We are brokers and in most cases, we are paid by the talent, not our clients.
Who handles the negotiation on fees?
We do. We work with most budgets, and we always ask, even if the speaker/comedian has a higher fee..as long as everyone is happy.
What if our speaker is unable to attend due to sickness or other emergency?
CelebConnect will arrange a suitable substitute..that’s much less worry for you.
Who handles the logistics?
This one is us too. We oversee of all of the event details related to the talent such as travel arrangements, timing, payments and discussing content..we will make your life easier. This includes the upfront logistics too, such as checking talent availability and holding dates.
Do I have to work exclusively with one booking agency?
We hope you will want to work with us each year. We often work with other agencies to pull together several speakers for one event.
