FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN HIRING ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR CORPORATE AWARDS NIGHT
Any corporate event, including awards nights, needs attention and planning. Those in attendance, including well-known individuals in your company, are likely to be present and they’ll expect a good balance between the speeches and the entertainment.
In this day and age, too many speeches will bore the audience and may result in a loss of focus and attention during the event. The event needs to be organised in such a way that the overall message is clearly passed on and felt and even celebrated. Booking quality event entertainment for your awards night is the key in making sure the core messages are complemented well by the entertainment provided for the ‘fun side’ of an event.
Of course, professional entertainers, whether it be a high energy party band, DJ experience, musical theatre act or Motown show should be there to provide a memorable experience and keep the guests from checking their phones. So, what points should an event manager consider when hiring the entertainment for corporate events? Here are a few:
This point is less concerned about the performers, but more on the event itself. The objective here is to keep the audience from getting bored and direct their attention to the event at hand. Whilst ‘too much entertainment’ can never really be a bad thing you still need to juggle the ratio of speeches/presentation to entertainment and of course time to chat or network.
How much is your budget for your party entertainment? If you want world-class performances, you can contact companies like Lovegrove Entertainment and let them know about your budget and their team will gladly accommodate you with an act that fits the price range.
What kind of performances do you want for your event? Good corporate entertainment should be entertaining but still in line with whatever the theme may be. Company party entertainment ideas can be found in many entertainment agency and Speaker Bureau websites.
Choose experienced and professional entertainers who can handle the crowd. What better way to guarantee that you, the event planner, gets the entertainment you ask for than hiring experienced party entertainers for hire?
This is the most important and should be on top of your list. It’s potentially disastrous to hire party entertainers who are cheap. You risk offering your audience an underwhelming experience. Remember that quality corporate party entertainment can transform even the most boring program to a wonderful one.
