Why Book Talent With CTI

Our focus is on getting the best talent for you and making sure you have a successful event!
MORE options... and the BEST options
CTI can give you a complete list of ALL the active performers, speakers, actors, and athletes in your price range, not just a limited list that an agency needs to get work for. CTI has a complete database of all major names for you to pick from, and it is kept current daily. CTI will recommend performers, speakers, and celebrities with a proven track record on doing great events for clients. We are not obligated to provide dates for any talent and will only recommend who we feel will do the best job for our clients. Again, you are our client, not the talent.
Our industry knowledge and connections
After 25 years of doing celebrity bookings, often there are options and elements that we can ask for to help you and save on event costs. CTI regularly gets travel fees reduced, and we can often get talent to provide some technical items themselves. We always include things like a meet and greet at the event in our agreements. We can offer celebrities multiple, well-organized bookings, and can often help route talent to save costs on travel and expenses.
Volume buying and industry pricing
Quotes on fees for celebrities can frequently change, and CTI will get a final talent fee price that you can count on. CTI does hundreds of bookings a year with major speakers and performers, and this will benefit you as we are able to get industry pricing as a volume buyer. Talent reps can often quote a higher fee to buyers not in our industry for corporate events, galas, and fundraisers, but CTI will get the lowest quoted fee that a talent will confirm for.
Secure Confirmations
Our agreements with talent will protect you better. With our experience, we know what talent will and will not agree to. The meet and greet, any advance promo needs, and every item related to the talent will be in your final agreement for security. We also add items for your protection in our agreements with talent, which managers and other agencies often leave out.
Faster Confirmations
When CTI presents your event to the talent as a pre-qualified client, talent and managers will respond immediately if they can to our offers. Talent reps know we have buyers and always take our calls and get back to us immediately. Celebrities and their assistants will quickly review and accept an offer faster for CTI since they have often worked with us before.
Presenting your event well
CTI always makes sure our clients' full event details are presented to the talent. We make sure talent knows if there is a benefactor, cause, or charity that the talent might support. Often there are elements on an event or project that can help confirm the celebrity, and we can often help in this area for our clients.
Video Link on all talent, on our site.
It is always nice to see what you are buying. To make it convenient for you, CTI has linked to current videos of talent to assist with the selection process and help guarantee the talent you expect.

American Cancer Society booked Dwight Yoakam

All was GREAT!! (We) got to spend some time with Dwight in his bus and he was really great to talk to and very generous. He wanted to know if there was anything he could donate to the event and he donated some signs and autographed them. He couldn't have been nicer during the photo op...
