Organising an event can be a taxing affair if you do not have the right resources or if you have not done your research right. In order to make any event unforgettable, it is of absolute essence that you hire entertainment for the event that is able to keep the guests and the attendees on their toes and enjoy the show. If they end up yawning, you will probably get a stink eye from the boss, which might even explain why you don’t get a bonus this year.
Here is a list of things to keep in mind when you are considering hiring entertainers for events in corporate companies:
- Research Is Number One
Contacting agents is a great way to get hold of some quality entertainers for the night. However, be wary when choosing the ones you want to hire, just because they are represented by an agent doesn’t prove they can turn up the heat at the event. Interestingly, the top earning corporate entertainers also seem to work without associating themselves with any agents. So ask around or ask reliable Google for a few hints on which path to take.
- Duration of The Show
Since you will be organizing the event, it is up to you as to how long the entertainment will last. In case the attendees have spent the whole day at seminars and workshops, a show consisting of anywhere between 20 to 60 minutes after dinner will be more than enough. If you make it any longer, you will be seeing some yawning action before the end of the show.
- Understand The Purpose Of The Show
Each corporate event is organised with a particular goal at stake. The entertainment needs to complement the event purpose for making it interesting for the guests. For example, a team building event, where all the attendees are seated will find a magic show interesting. However, if it’s the annual awards night at your corporation, you can get on of the bigwig corporate stand up comedians to liven up the show and so on. Even when you are considering hiring entertainment for different types of social events, the same rule stands.
- Stay Within Budget
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter whether you plan for the moon or the stars. Ultimately it all depends on the budget allotted for entertainment for the event. If the event is comparatively major like a product launch or rebranding, it is safer to go with a star performer. You can stick to new performers for smaller events like team building or gala event.
- Requirements For The Show
Some show entertainers will require additional setup on the stage to ensure that the show is successful. For example, if you hired a popular singer for the night, they will need to have a sound system with speakers. Similarly, a magician will need extra time on the stage before the event to customize their show accordingly. However, you can also opt for comedy groups who seem to be trending quite a bit now, given their growing popularity online. They only require a mic to entertain your guests. It is attention to the smallest detail like these that makes the importance of events management even more prominent.
