Frequently Asked Questions about booking Kodo to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Kodo in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Kodo or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Kodo'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 Kodo for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Kodo, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Kodo. After we consult with them, we will 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 accurate Kodo booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Kodo for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Kodo booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Kodo charge for an event. An example fee to book Kodo is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their 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 as well. 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 Kodo agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Kodo 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 Kodo for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Kodo agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Kodo, 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 Kodo 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 Kodo, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
