CTI can give you the accurate Syed Karim booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Syed Karim for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Syed Karim 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 Syed Karim charge for an event. One example fee to book Syed Karim is in the starting range of $25,000-$39,999. 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 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 Syed Karim agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Syed Karim 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 Syed Karim for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Syed Karim agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Syed Karim, 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 Syed Karim 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 Syed Karim, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
