At little or no pay, yes. But look at groups like Creation. If you set up a for-profit group and pay them...

At most conventions (at least the non-profit SF cons) the Guests of Honor usually go in return for expenses. Some get a small fee, but it's nothing compared to what some of the stars want to go to the profit-making conventions. I've heard of fees ranging from $5,000 to $150,000.
