Why Attend a Live Model EXPO?

We are passionate about the industry and giving you the education and opportunity to strive in the fashion and entertainment industry. We want everyone to have a great experience and networking at one of our Live Events.


• We select people for our showcase events based on their real potential to become a model, actor, singer, dancer and or entertainer. If you are personally invited by us to attend the event, then we feel you have a chance to be signed to an agency in one of the attending markets.


• For an example: the top modeling agencies are in New York and it is difficult and expensive to fly there hoping that they will consider you on the spot. Agency directors know our success rate and come to our events with the goal of signing new talent. Participants are sometimes signed at the time of the event. Other selected participants may be contacted later on after the event.


• We are always honest and make no promises that you will be signed to an agency at our live event. It is very competitive but we do give you the best opportunity to be seen in person by the top agency directors and to start a career.


• It is not necessary to bring or pay for any type of portfolio, book or photos.


• To attend our events, you are not required to enroll in any type of modeling school. In our opinion the modeling schools will not help you become a model. We are actual model scouts who travel throughout the country to find people that have the real potential to model.


• We treat all participants and their families with care. We are a professionally ran business, we attend all of our showcase events and are available to speak with you in person. When you contact the Karen Elle Project, you speak to one of our talent specialist or directors personally.


• We are a “Mother Agent” here to help you and your family manage your entry and career in the industry.


• We have a high percentage of discoveries being placed with the top global agencies attending our events such as; New York Model Management, DNA, Elite, Ford, IMG, Industry, Ford, JAG, Marilyn, Muse, Next, Women and Wilhelmina.

We are always available to talk with participants and their families who would like guidance and advice.

• There is a registration fee to attend the International Discovery Live weekend, your talent specialist will provide all details on cost to register.  All of your Live event costs are stated up front, no hidden fees.

•  You must cover the cost of your hotel & transportation to and from the event, Any meals and beverages during your stay.  You must complete your full payment prior to the event. Also please note that there are no refunds on registration for the event due to contractual agreements with the venue and vendors for this event.
