THE CELEBRITY SOURCE is a celebrity booking agency like no other. We have been helping our clients build their brands and increase profits through the use of celebrities and influencers for over 30 years. We match celebrities and influencers with PR, marketing, advertising campaigns, and special events for both corporate and non-profit clients. We have strong relationships in the celebrity community, with direct access to thousands of celebrities from film, television, music, sports, fashion, and digital in addition to experts and influencers from many different industries. With our unique service, we make it easy to book a celebrity.
There are many PR/marketing tactics which corporations and non-profits can employ to draw attention and influence, some more successful than others. The one constant, however, is that the right celebrity can provide influence and credibility beyond any other PR or marketing strategy.
The Celebrity Source does not represent celebrities and influencers — we represent you, our client.
We are celebrity specialists whose total focus of work every day is celebrity outreach, negotiations and logistics coordination on behalf of our clients.
