After the actual booking of a celebrity entertainer or keynote speaker, the production aspects begin. We help with every aspect required for producing celebrity events. Event planners review our menu of services below and decide if they wish to have us provide which services of ours to utilize or a hire us for a “one fee, we’re responsible” turn-key show. In either case, we always work as your advocate throughout the production process and we won’t let you over pay.
Show Production Negotiation
Probably the most overlooked aspect and costly item that could be negotiated, is the fulfillment of the act’s production requirements. Many acts have a tremendous list of requirements beyond their appearance fee. We negotiate these items on your behalf to provide a more cost effective show.
For example, we insist that the performer doesn’t need the same light show at your dinner dance in a hotel ballroom as they would at Madison Square Garden. Without us negotiating the technical aspects, we often find the performer’s lighting director attempting to unnecessarily run up the lighting bill by as much as double. We routinely save our clients $5,000 -$10,000 on this one item alone.
We can provide the celebrity on an appearance fee only basis or a fully produced turn-key performance. In either case, there is one price guaranteed for all the services that you’d like us to provide.
Celebrity Travel Services
If desired, we will handle the complete travel, hotel accommodations and hospitality arrangements for the artist. We do this as a time saver for you… not a profit center for us. We don’t “mark up” airline tickets.
Sound, Lighting, Video, Staging
With regional production offices in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Orlando plus contacts internationally, we produce all aspects of the technical requirements internally for less costs and with absolute control.
Our experienced production staff will, if desired, be on-site for pre-event coordination, rehearsals and stage management right through load out. Most of our clients welcome the freedom to focus on the many other aspects of the event and leave the show for us to produce. Producing celebrity events and performances for the corporate event and non-profit event industry is where our expertise shines.
Complete Financial Administration
We handle all contracts, deposits, methods of payment, and payroll. All transactions made according to budget with no last minute surprises to hold up the show.
