In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, and Beth Kormanik, editor in chief of BizBash, hear from Amir Epstein of talent-booking company RER Productions. Epstein pulls back the curtain on how planners hire big-name musicians, actors, athletes, comedians, and others for events. He discusses how performances at corporate events differ from public events, how to tell which stars would be a good fit, and how commission rates work. He also shares what to expect from talent riders, how willing performers are to customize content, and what questions event planners should be asking. This episode is a must-listen for anyone who plans entertainment for events of any size.
