How Do I Book Speakers for My Event?
Many events could greatly benefit from having a guest speaker to address the audience. Whether you are looking to present a product, explain a concept, or simply keep your crowd entertained, there is no better way. Hiring a speaker can be quite daunting, especially if you are not familiar with the world of event planning. Having said that, finding the best speaker for your event doesn’t have to be difficult. If you take a little bit of time to plan ahead, you are certainly going to be able to maximize your efforts and make the most out of your particular situation. Without further ado, let’s get going! Keep reading to learn more about finding the best speakers for your event.
Where to find speakers?
In most cases, you won’t be able to contact a high-profile speaker directly. They are likely not going to reply to booking requests via Facebook or the direct messages on Instagram! For this reason, your best way to contact Speakers is through booking agencies such as Anthem Talent Agency. Our qualified booking agents can help you uncover the perfect keynote speaker or lecturer for your event. Once the exact speaker has been identified, your personal booking agent will negotiate with the talent on your behalf, ensuring you get the most accurate pricing and contract terms.
What is your budget?
It’s important to set a budget and know how much you’re willing to spend. Many speakers offer rough estimates of how much you can expect to spend. However, most speaking contracts are often negotiated on a case-to-case basis. Naturally, hiring a highly sought-after celebrity speaker might be costly, but there are many price tiers, and not all great speakers are expensive to book!
