WHY THE TSM AGENCY?
Trade Show Models Attract Attention
We began by staffing technology trade shows during the dot-com boom of the late 1990’s. These early shows taught us a thing or two about our corporate clients’ needs. Our very first models were trained to appear as though they were actual employees of the companies they were representing.
Our executive team comes from a diverse corporate background including banking, sales, and marketing. Our model staffing agency does not employ any entry-level, fresh out of college account executives with no experience. Your events are too important to leave in the hands of amateurs..

Training and education
Before events, every model is provided tips and beneficial information to prepare for your event and help make it a success!
Models are independent contractors, and many set their rates. We will find a model with the experience level to match your budget.
The TSM Agency is the first agency to use a tiered model pricing approach to best match our talent with client’s budgets.
Act as a liaison between staff and client to ensure everyone is on the same page. Relevant information such as booth number, times, locations, parking, contact person, attire, shifts and any other unique event requests are coordinated.
Models are provided information regarding best practices and instructed on what to do to make a positive impression on your attendees. If product or service knowledge is required, we will assist with providing links or material for the models to read.
Independent contractors will be paid promptly and based on the final contract amount. The agency manages 1099 forms, and you have no additional responsibilities.
Account executives are in constant communication with your staff up to the day of the show. If we receive any indication that a model will not be able to work, the agency is on hand to work on finding a replacement model. If for any reason a replacement is not possible, reimbursement is issued accordingly.
Post event analysis

We believe it is our job to deliver a quality model to fit every budget and opportunity. Give us a call or email us, and we can discuss your requirements.
Once we’ve received confirmation that pricing has been reviewed and accepted, we can begin working on staffing your event. When your model(s) have chosen, your account executive will prepare and send you an agreement. You should return the agreement within 24-48 hours. We cannot reserve models without a completed contract. A model’s availability is subject to change until officially booked.

A FEW OF OUR GLOWING REVIEWS
It was tremendous fun working with Ashley and Leslie! TSM Agency NYC are the best! We even had more fun interacting with fans, selling merchandise and interacting with attendees. Everything started slow, (it poured heavily) but it picked up significantly by mid-day. Our social media page went on a frenzy, and our messages was retweeted countless times. Here’s to future trade show success!
We loved Katie and Megan. They were friendly and courteous with our customers, and always happy to lend an extra hand. We would work with them again! We have been doing everything wrong until we came across TSM Agency. They had a pretty good understanding of cars, having worked auto shows before, and we benefited from this.
We had booked Virginia for an expo, but she called in and notified that she wouldn’t make it but the firm was able to organize a suitable replacement in time for the trade show. Jennie was the replacement who received very positive feedback from the customers which was appreciated after being called on such short notice. Very good and we will use the TSM Agency again in the future.
NEED A PRICE QUOTE? CONTACT US!
The best way to avoid any misunderstandings about responsibilities is to discuss them with your model at the start of the event. Throughout the event, give your model feedback. Just like an employee, they are working for you! You may contact your TSM Agency Account Executive at any time if you are experiencing any difficulties.
The TSM Agency rarely experiences a no-show, but should this occur, our staff is on hand to find a replacement model for your event.
We accept all major credit cards, wire transfers and checks; however, all payments must be made prior to your event.
At the TSM Agency we base our recommendations of models on the working relationship with the model and client feedback. Models who consistently receive positive feedback and maintain a professional working relationship with the company are recommended.
Account Executives can set up phone interviews for the clients to interview the potential models at the client’s request.
Clients are encouraged to provide any materials they feel are necessary for the model to have prior to the event. They can send this information to their Account Executive, who will then forward it to the selected models for their review.
The TSM Agency has models all across the United States and Canada, so typically, models come from the local area, cutting the expenses for our clients of having to provide travel and accommodations. If a client has a specific model they would like to book from outside the area, the TSM Agency and our models are able to make arrangements for travel.
Promotional models specialize in gaining and keeping the attention of event guests. They can generate a large number of leads, hand out materials, discuss your company with guests, scan badges and many other tasks to maximize your presence. They are great for manning the booth if you need to step away or are engaged with a prospective customer.
Our models specialize in trade show and promotional modeling; however, most of our models have experience in print, runway, film and television, music and many other facets of entertainment.
First you contact us and give us as much information as you can in regards to your event, as well as expectations.
The Account Executive will need to know the dates, location, hours, number of models to staff, the models’ responsibilities and the required attire. You can never give us too much information so feel free to tell us about the type of event (if we aren’t already familiar with it), your goals, messaging, products and services or any other pertinent information.
We will then provide a proposal and recommend staff based on your needs. Once reviewed, we will answer any questions you may have or change any required information in order to finalize approval. Once approved, models from our database will be contacted from the desired location for availability. We will send photos of the available models to you for model selection and then finalize all details and selected model(s).
Due to the wide variety of experience each model has, they each have a different minimum rate they are willing to work for. We honor our models’ requests, as they are independent contractors and are not required to work for a rate they do not find satisfactory.
We take your event very seriously; working diligently and focusing on every detail, as well as understanding what you are looking for and expecting from our models. We will share that information with the models that you book, and keep communication clear and timely. Our staff is prompt and thorough, and strives to fulfill and surpass the expectations of each of our clients.
The TSM Agency has been staffing hundreds of events across the United States and Canada for over ten years. We are highly experienced and professional, and we are capable of handling any event!

Please contact the TSM Agency if there are any issues with the client.

We strongly encourage you to keep your profile up to date. If you have new photos, contact information or experience, please post it regularly.
Occasionally a client requests a model to travel to their event. The TSM Agency will contact the model and if he/she agrees, the client and the TSM Agency will make travel arrangements, all expenses paid.
Yes, you can; however, elective travel is at the model’s expense. If a client requests to fly a model to the event you will be contacted and accommodated for travel.
Please put your personal belongings away. Do not use your cell phone while you are working. Stay focused on the task at hand.
Be punctual; we ask that our models plan to be at the event 15 minutes early due to the large scale of many of the events. Be professional; meet the needs of the client and fulfill your responsibilities. Be friendly and outgoing. Promotional models must be comfortable and eager to engage with others. Follow the recommendations you receive from your account executive when you are booked for a job and review all information provided on the client and the show.
When we are contacted, we contact the models that fit the needs of the client and location of the event. Clients make the final decision on their model; however, the TSM Agency does provide recommendations based on prior work performance.
Models must be at least 18 years old. The TSM Agency is always accepting applications of attractive and outgoing individuals who are professional and dependable to add to our team! For more information click HERE.
