Chelsea PellegrinoContributor

Whatever your event may be, one thing is for certain - you want the best vendor possible. Well, you’re off to a great start by choosing GigMasters! With over 25,000 vendors in categories like Musical EntertainmentVariety Acts, Speakers, Party Rentals, Transportation and Event Services, we’ll help you find the perfect match for your special occasion.


Start Your Search!

The best way to start is by narrowing your search to the type of vendor or entertainer you’d like to see at your event. If this is something you haven’t decided upon yet, not to worry! Our wonderful Account Specialists are always around to offer up their suggestions. Our blog posts are also chock full of unique entertainment ideas and fun party themes, so be sure to check them out!

Once you’ve selected your vendor category, signify what kind of event you’re planning by using the drop down menu. Then, choose the city and state (or province) where the event will be held. These steps will provide you with a list of vendors in and around your area who specialize in the kind of event you’re planning.


Check It Out

Next, you’ll want to check out vendor profiles. Read bios, click through photos, watch videos and view past client reviews. If the vendor seems like a great fit for your event, it’s time to click Request Free Quote. If you want to keep browsing, go for it! The vendor will be added to your “saved vendors” list, located at the top of the page.


Fill Us In

You’ll provide the vendor with some information about the event, including date, time, venue and a few other details. This will help the vendor determine if they’re available, if they’ll have the proper equipment/expertise necessary to fulfill your request, and the most appropriate price, so please be as specific as possible!


Just In Case…

Even if you’re positive this is the vendor for your party, we recommend sending your request to a few more similar vendors. There’s a chance they may already be booked for that date, or that you’ll come across a vendor you find to be even more fitting! By selecting the “Up to (5 or 10) more vendors” option, your request will automatically be sent out to other vendors in your area that fit your requested criteria.



Yes, it’s really that simple! Once you’ve submitted your form, you’ll hear back from our vendors with price quotes that are customized for your event.


If you reach trouble at any point during your search, don’t hesitate to contact us at, or by calling (866) 342-9794. After all, the party starts here!
