Events and meetings are an important part of a business world, it is extremely important to select the right type of entertainment to make your event or meeting successful. In this article, we will go over the different types of entertainment that you can use for different occasions to make your corporate event a successful one.
Product Launch Parties
When you are launching a new product, it goes without saying that you must do it with elan. If you have selected a club, you most definitely should get a DJ to entertain the crowd. That being said, not every DJ is alike, so be sure to interview your DJ first to ensure that he can read the crowd well. This is important to keep the party rocking. If you want a more elegant atmosphere, get a jazz duo or trio to entertain your guests. Play with your imagination to create the right setup.
While most of us do not consider making entertainment a part of business meetings, it may actually be a good idea if you’re looking to liven up the mood and complete the meeting with gusto. You can think of entertainment options to be introduced during the lunch break to make the atmosphere more social.
Customer/Vendor Appreciation Events
Since your customers/vendors are the core of your business, it is but justified to make them feel appreciated by hosting a memorable event for them. Consider hosting a themed party. Some of the popular themes are the carnival theme where you get clowns, jugglers, and face painters to entertain your guests and their families, a Latin theme complete with a salsa band, and an Indian theme with belly dancers. However, you can think and experiment with other themes as well.
Cocktail parties can differ according to the crowd and mood of the party. For example, a party with more than 50 people require large-scale entertainment options such as a jazz quartet, whereas, for a smaller group, a bass and piano duo will do just fine. Don’t be afraid to customize your entertainment options based on the number of people and mood you want to create.
Many companies with outdoor seating offer live music once a week to let their employees enjoy their lunchtime. If you want to follow suit, create a relaxing atmosphere for your employees in an elegant way by getting a harpist or violinist.
For annual company events like a holiday party, hiring a DJ or big band is the best option. Of course, this depends on the size of the group and the location of the event. For example, if you are a small group in a restaurant, a DJ would be the best choice, whereas, for a large sit-down dinner or gathering in a hotel, a band performance is best. If you are organizing a summer BBQ party for the employees, a calypso band is usually perfect to lend a festive feel.
Sometimes, fundraisers are where you really want to get the most for your money. For a gala event, get a big band orchestra, more pieces during dinner and a string quartet during cocktails. For the other types of fundraisers, arranging for face painters, caricaturists, a Dixieland Band, or even a clown can help set up a jovial and relaxed tone and create a warm and welcoming environment for your guests.
