Why Pay To Invite Talent To Your Event?

Even when the brand does secure the celebrity with cash, many brand managers sabotage the process by not being prepared with enough knowledge up front to truly get expectations met at the end of the day.

Brands bring in celebrities to events because:

  • Celebrities get media to attend and cover the event.
  • Celebrities provide photo opportunities that will later make the event appear even more exciting – especially the sizzle reel.
  • Celebrities can impact their fan bases through social media and raise awareness of the event.
  • Celebrities are PR friendly, providing content for public relations story development.
  • Celebrities excite other event attendees, whether they are distributors, C-level executives or the public.
  • Celebrities get more (unpaid) celebrities to attend.
