This is a common question and varies greatly depending on the specific artist or speaker. In most cases, there is a flat performance guarantee, plus additional expenses such as artist airfare, lodging, ground transportation, food / beverage, etc. Production related expenses, such as a stage, audio and lighting would also be paid by the event. The “all-in” number is determined on numerous factors, such as the event type (corporate, non-profit, political, ticketed, educational, etc.), event dates, event location, travel time, and the like.
