Frequently Asked Questions about booking Illy.
Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Illy, with postponed or cancelled events due to COVID-19 are now, in certain cases, considering virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Illy or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Illy'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 Illy for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Illy, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Illy. 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 accurate Illy booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Illy for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Illy 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 Illy charge for an event. One example fee to book Illy 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.
There is low probability to book Illy for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Illy agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Illy, 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 Illy 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 Illy, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
