Frequently Asked Questions about booking Fruit Bats.

Fruit Bats's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Fruit Bats for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate to the price range to book Fruit Bats, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Fruit Bats. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the Fruit Bats booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Fruit Bats for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Fruit Bats booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Fruit Bats charge for an event. Also, thier speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Fruit Bats agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Fruit Bats manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Fruit Bats for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Fruit Bats agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Fruit Bats, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Fruit Bats booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Fruit Bats, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
