CTI as your Celebrity Booking Agency
Our industry knowledge and connections

After 25 years of doing celebrity bookings, there are key options and elements that we can ask for, to help you and to save on buying costs when it comes time to hire a celebrity. This booking agency regularly gets talent travel fees reduced, by often negotiating with the celebrity, professional speaker, or performance act to provide some technical items on their own. Corporate entertainment events are especially attractive to top performance acts, comedians, and speakers because they are more reliable and safer to work.


Volume buying and industry pricing

We hire top professional speakers and celebrity performers for hundreds of corporate, tradeshow, private party, music venue, and fair or festival bookings each year; this will benefit you as we are able to get industry pricing as a volume celebrity buyer. In comparison, higher fees are often quoted for buyers not in our industry when directly contacting celebrity reps for corporate events, galas, and fundraisers; but CTI will negotiate the lowest fee that you can hire a celebrity, performer, comedian, and professional speaker for booking celebrity appearances.


Faster Confirmations

When we present your event to the talent, as a pre-qualified client, the celebrity and managers will respond immediately if they can do our offers. Talent reps know we have serious event buyers that want to hire a celebrity, book a speaker, or contract major performers - they always take our calls or immediately get back to us. Celebrity performers and their assistants will quickly review and accept an offer faster for CTI, since they have often worked with us before.
