Business Events News - - News -

HAV­ING en­ter­tain­ment at your event is a great way to make an im­pact on your guests. Pro­vid­ing unique forms of en­ter­tain­ment can ig­nite con­ver­sa­tion about your event and boost brand aware­ness as a re­sult.

De­pend­ing on fac­tors like the theme, your in­dus­try, the size of your event and the age of guests, there are sev­eral op­tions for event en­ter­tain­ment.

En­ter­tain­ment could range from co­me­di­ans, pup­peteers and ma­gi­cians, to dancers, live mu­sic and DJs.

Here are a few things to con­sider when choos­ing en­ter­tain­ment for your event:

Know your au­di­ence

When choos­ing the en­ter­tain­ment for your event, it’s im­por­tant to know your au­di­ence and have a broad un­der­stand­ing of what their in­ter­ests might be.

It might be a no-brainer, but mak­ing sure the en­ter­tain­ment you choose is age ap­pro­pri­ate and fit­ting for the style of your event is vi­tal to its suc­cess.

You’re not go­ing to have a bal­loon artist at a con­fer­ence for CEOs, just like you’re not go­ing to hire Brazil­ian dancers for a chil­dren’s event.

Get some ad­vice prior to book­ing

Do­ing re­search and speak­ing to peo­ple in the in­dus­try will help you to choose the right en­ter­tain­ment, along with word-of-mouth ad­vice. It can help take the guess­work out of choos­ing the right de­ci­sion and re­duce the risk of hir­ing a poor act.

Keep to the theme

If your event is themed, en­sure that the en­ter­tain­ment you choose ad­heres to the theme. For ex­am­ple, if your event is cir­cus in­spired, you might con­sider hir­ing a jug­gling act or a fire dancer and if your event is mas­quer­ade, you might con­sider hav­ing a mas­quer­ade themed dance act.

This will as­sist with the co­he­sive­ness of your event and will help with the suc­cess of your event as a re­sult.

Con­sider the size of your event

The type of en­ter­tain­ment you choose should vary de­pend­ing on the size of your event.

Con­sider hav­ing a more ro­bust en­ter­tain­ment act for a larger event.

This will of­ten mean more com­plex au­dio­vi­sual re­quire­ments to en­sure that the en­ter­tain­ment is seen and heard from ev­ery sec­tion of event space.
