    How To #2: 8 Steps To Inviting A Celebrity To Your Event & Saving Some Money

    Posted by Stacy Jones on March 11, 2019 at 9:02 AM

    The Successful Celebrity Event

    When brands throw parties, trade show or brand launch events, one of the best ways to grab media attention is to have celebrities attend, but safeguards are needed. Things go awry and the fact is most high caliber celebrities don’t attend for free, no matter how awesome the brand is, which is extremely costly to the brand.  

    Not only do these celebrities not attend for free -- you need to negotiate every single thing up front.  Forget to ask for a social post? Need a CEO meet and greet? Need them there for a photos shoot? Spend more in the long run. In this blog, Hollywood Branded provides 8 steps to inviting a celebrity to your event and insight into what steps a brand manager needs to take to not sabotage the partnership, ensuring that the brand gets everything they need from the celebrity endorser experience.
