Guide To Booking National Entertainment

Exclusive to Native American Owned Casinos and Tribal Employees

This training program is intended for the benefit of your Tribal members and employees only. Learning this information is a very rare opportunity and can significantly help the people who acquire these skills. This training opportunity is not a quick fix or band-aid to an ongoing problem but a one time cost for a permanent solution. Most importantly it gives your Tribal members and employees new opportunities to expand the self-sufficiency of your establishment and community while creating immediate savings and forging new relationships with direct international entertainment companies.

With the tools and information provided in this training program, we can guarantee savings on your overall entertainment budget the first year of implementation followed by increased savings the second year with continued opportunities for savings into the future. Although some vendors are lowering prices from 10% to 8% for a few select clients, this is still a fee for a service that is not necessary and leaves your gaming property vulnerable to questionable business practices by relying on the honesty of outside vendors. This program is about eliminating fees and empowering your people.
