• One-stop market for event entertainment
• Tips for booking talent
If your busy schedule puts you in the position to book speakers, musicians, and entertainers over your lunch, you may need a side of GigSalad to lighten your load. CEO Mark Steiner came from an acting and booking agent background and was able to create a lucrative platform in which to display the many talents of others with knowledge from his own experiences.
GigSalad began in 2007, as a “basic data directory,” according to Steiner that has evolved into a booking marketplace. With the help of his friend and co-founder, Steve Tetrault, a website was designed and they have been “popping up on people’s [computer] searches” ever since. The Springfield, MO official headquarters provides everything from technical support to talent booking for event planners as GigSalad is a liaison between artists and speakers and the meetings and events industry.
