Booking the Entertainment

Once the type of entertainment best suited to the event has been decided on by the planner(s), it is necessary to do some research to discover the entertainers who will be the best fit. Their booking agencies should be contacted and references and referrals requested. Care should be taken to check that the entertainer selected is reliable, adheres to the contract guidelines, and does not have contract riders that are too difficult to meet. Some of the factors to consider are:
• Does the performer have a reputation for being late, or having a drinking or substance abuse problem?
• Is the entertainment provider already in the local area, or are flight-times and passports an issue?
• Does the equipment travel with the performers, or is separate shipping a possible cause for delay or a no show?
