One example fee to book A1 X J1 is in the starting range of $2,500-$7,499. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear.

CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the A1 X J1 agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The A1 X J1 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 A1 X J1 for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the A1 X J1 agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book A1 X J1, 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 A1 X J1 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 A1 X J1, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
