Please visit the Representation section of our website for more information.
We provide a variety of speakers and entertainment for corporations, associations, town halls and other organizations. These speakers start at $1500.00 and up. We do not have any "free" speakers.
Yes! While many of our speakers are willing to negotiate, we have no "free" speakers. Please see our $5K and Under section for an extensive list of reasonably-priced speakers.
Typically, our Event Coordinator here at AEI handles all of the travel arrangements; however, if you so desire, we will work with your travel agency instead. Additionally, in some cases, the speaker does his or her own travel.
The speaker always pays our commission, and the fee you are quoted includes this commission. You will not pay more to work with AEI Speakers Bureau.
In order to provide you with the best possible price, we do not accept credit cards, since it would be an added fee if we were to do so.
Yes! We have speakers and entertainment of various price ranges. Please visit our $5K and Under section to find a speaker best suited for your event.
Fees are constantly changing. Things like travel, routing, and other situations may affect a speaker's final price. In order to get the most up-to-date pricing information, we encourage you to call us at 1-800-44-SPEAK (1-800-447-7325) and speak to one of our experienced agents. Since we are hired by you, and not the speakers, our agents will always negotiate the lowest possible fee on your behalf.
In some instances, speakers require unrestricted travel or first class travel. However, we are always willing to work with you in order to arrive at the best travel arrangments possible.
Every time a speaker or entertainer is booked for your event, a contract is sent to the speaker and signed by him or her as a written guarantee that he or she will appear for your event. If, for some reason, it is impossible for the speaker to attend your event, our agents here at AEI will do their best to find a mutually acceptable replacement that is, in the end, approved by you.
Yes we do. AEI Speakers Bureau is a division of American Entertainment International, Inc., which handles our entertainment acts. If you are interested in a specific type of entertainment, please call our office at 1-800-44-SPEAK (1-800-447-7325) and speak to one of our agents; or, feel free to browse the Speaker Search page to see who we currently have available to you.
When we work with you, there are no surprises. Most speakers have very basic a/v requirements - microphone and podium. However, some speakers have more extensive technical riders. Our Event Coordinator handles every detail and will inform you of any of these "additional items" far in advance.
Both the Event Coordinator and the speaker's office will be in direct contact with you to discuss your event in detail.
We invite you to call our office at 1-800-44-SPEAK (1-800-447-7325) and speak to one of our agents. They will be able to provide you with DVD or Video CD containing a presentation given by that speaker and/or any other information you may be interested in.
We invite you to give us a call and our research department here at AEI will work hard to locate the speaker you are looking for.
