The CelebrityAccess booth was manned by company president Peter Denholtz and Director of Sales Kent Heiden, who took the opportunity to meet with many old friends and clients as well as cultivate some new relationships.
CelebrityAccess sponsored a number of conference sessions at the this year's G2E, including the Entertainment 101: Negotiations, Contracts and Concepts session which was moderated by industry veteran, Mark Sonder. The session covered the basics of purchasing talent as well as the resources available to assist the buying process.
