Entertainment Ideas for Your Corporate Event
So, it’s fallen upon you to come up with entertainment for a corporate event. You have to capture the attention of your audience and put your company on the map. But where do you start? Hasn’t it all been done before?
Take a deep breath and relax. Events by Knight are industry experts, and we’re more than happy to share our top 10 entertainment ideas to keep you ahead of the game.
1. Get out the Red Carpet
Why not start your event in style. Get out the red carpet, use rope barriers and paparazzi photographers. Pretend you’re in the spotlight and all the world’s your stage.
2. Singing Waiters
Have you seen the You Tube clips where waiters suddenly serenade guests in song? You could incorporate this into your event, or introduce singing waiters during a break, depending on the formality of your event.
Break the ice by hiring a caricature artist to sketch your guests. It creates a great talking point and gives them a personal gift to take home!
Amaze your guests with a live magician to perform stunts and tricks, perhaps using smoke and special effects; a real show stopper.
5. Musical comedy groups or themed based music
Nothing makes an event come to life than good comedy, live music or a combination of the two. Why not give your event a Caribbean, Mexican or Brazilian flavour and get everyone moving to a traditional beat?
6. LED Dancers
Turn out the lights and watch a troupe of classical dancers or professional ballerinas in LED costumes dazzle the stage. It’s a stunning display that’s sure to please your audience.
7. Green Screen Photography
One of the more technical entertainment ideas is to hire a green screen photographic studio and transport your guests to a virtual world. There’s a wide range of backdrops available and your guests can take home a souvenir video or still photo of their adventures.
8. Celebrity Lookalikes
You’d like a famous actor or singer at your event, but don’t have the budget so why not hire a lookalike? George Clooney mingling with your guests or Shirley Bassey belting out a classic number would really get your audience guessing. Choose appropriately though, in keeping with the overall event.
9. Circus Acts
Have you considered bringing the circus to town? Trapeze artists and fire-eaters would steal the show and create a real buzz.
All corporate events would benefit from a toastmaster to introduce guests and narrate, but humorous interludes throughout the night are bound to lift any atmosphere.
We hope all this has given you an appetite for what’s possible.
