Whether it’s the holiday season and you are celebrating with your staff or it’s a customer or employee appreciation event or maybe a sales meeting or conference, you want your corporate event to be entertaining and fun.
Some time to be social is nice, but you don’t want to put too much pressure on your guests to chit chat for the entire event. Entertaining your guests at a corporate event is very important to the success of your party/event.
When we think of being entertained, we often think of laughing. So a comedian is an obvious and great choice for your guests. There are lots of other acts that are entertaining – especially with the rise in popularity of variety acts like you see on America’s Got Talent.
What people are really looking for in entertainment is something that makes them laugh, or oh and ahhhh in surprise and delight. People want to forget their troubles and just enjoy the show.
Ensuring the performer that you select is professional, high quality and on time are all key to entertaining your guests. You want someone dynamic, someone that can engage the crowd and draw reactions – like laughter or surprise.
It can be hard to tell from a 5-10 minute video how a performer is going to be in person. It’s possible the video captures all that they have to offer and the remainder of the hour is awkward. It’s possible your entertainer could be late or be a no show.
The best thing you can do to ensure quality entertainment for your guests is to use a talent agency to get a known performer – someone that the agency endorses as good and as suited for your particular event.
A talent agency has one job – to provide you with the best talent for your budget they know will wow you and your guests. They are proficient in the logistics and details and they are a helpful resource if any glitches happen the day of.
