    Where to Find Entertainment for a Corporate Events

    February 5, 2013

    What’s a corporate event without a central source of entertainment? Musicians, bands, and magicians may be some of the first things that come to mind when coming up with ideas of how to keep a corporate event interactive, but in a world where the entertainment industry captivates us all, there’s an abundance of creative ways to entertain at corporate events that you probably have never thought of! In addition to the many possibilities for entertainment is the ability of accessing these entertainment opportunities thanks to the internet!

     

    Websites that cater to the entertainment industry can really help when planning your next event! Not only do Gig Masters provide excellent resources for finding entertainers, at a more basic level, they provide an excellent source of types of entertainment. From Jazz Musician Bands to Puppet Shows, your next corporate event could be a very memorable event for all attendees! Another great idea is to have a a game show or a person to lead interactive games where lots of people win!

     

     

    If you are planning a corporate event on a budget and you do not necessarily have the resources to seek an entertainer or a band, reaching out to family and friends to provide services for small sum is a great way to stay on target with your budget.  Since your planning your event on a budget and if it as at a smaller venue space where family and friends will be invited to attend, it is always a great idea to consider hiring some of the attendees to provide talent services or entertainment.

     

     

     

     

    Live bands are a great way to entertain corporate events.  People love seeing live music and if you are looking for a safe genre, jazz or rock are good avenues to travel down because they both involve many instruments and are typically fun to performances to watch.  Before hiring a band for your next corporate event, be sure to go to one of their performances or do some internet research to make sure you know exactly what you are getting!  You wouldn't want to pay for a performance that does not successfully entertain a crowd! Additionally, some venues are strict about noise control, so be sure to check with the event space  to see if there is any limit to how late a live band can perform.  Similar to the band idea, where people are can not only be present at the event and be social, but if people want to take a step away from the event, being a member of the audience is always an excuse for a good out and can also break the awkward silence.  If a band is not something that would interest your group or it does not fit the agenda of the event, a photo booth is a great way to provide subtle and participatory entertainment for guests. Be sure to double check with the event venue to make sure an outside photographer is allowed. Having a photo booth set up either with a live photographer or on automatic settings not only provides an opportunity to capture memories from the event, but it also allows people to laugh and bond with one another over funny photos.  Better yet, throw some funny props around your photo booth and you are bound to create a good time for guests!  If you simply need subtle entertainment and a cool backdrop, get a projection of an old or classic movie playing along one of the walls.  This is a unique and fun way to light the room as well, whilst giving the event a subtle theme.  

     

     

    Take advantage of the venue space you rent out and think outside the box!
