Organizing A Special Event
There are a number of aspects to consider when organizing a special event. First you must have a corporate planner and possibly a committee to oversee the event. Then, the selection process for entertainment begins!
Selecting The Right Corporate Planner And Committee
Figuring out what kind of event you’re having and the theme you are planning is key in determining what type of entertainment you are going to want. You’ll want to start the planning far in advance to properly prepare. In addition, you’ll want to assign someone with experience in corporate planning to head the entire operation. Typically, this individual will form a committee and assign various tasks to the committee members. Usually, one of these committee members will be in charge of hiring your entertainment. If this person doesn’t have experience in hiring entertainment, you may want to consult someone who does, such as the individual you assigned to oversee your event. Regardless of who covers this aspect and how much experience they have, make sure they do their research. Ensuring the entertainment has a professional website, a number of 5 star reviews from hundreds of corporate clients, as well as a listing of reputable companies they’ve entertained is key. Selecting an the proper individuals to handling these important tasks are key to hiring the right entertainment for your very important corporate gathering.
Corporate entertainment suitable for your party
Planning an event isn’t as simple as it might look. Not every company function is identical and they can vary wildly between each and every organization. Look for vendors who can offer pre-packaged company entertainment that suit your event requirements but are versatile enough to entertain everyone. For example, if you’re hosting a party for the children of your employees and you hired a magician, he or she must provide the style of entertainment the children will find fun, enjoyable, and will actively engage in. However, since your employees also will be present, your party will be that much more successful if the magician is able to present a few tricks that entertain adults.
If you are planning a company holiday party, most likely you will search for a band that can perform holiday music. However, in order to have a great company party, you’ll want to ensure that your live musical entertainment is also fully capable of performing a wide variety of music to entertain all of your guests. For a holiday themed corporate event, your guests will tire of just hearing holiday music. For a country music themed event, your guests will quickly get bored of hearing country waltzes. Be sure to hire a corporate event band that can play a wide variety of music for your event that appeals to everyone of all ages and ethnicities.
For many special occasions, reputable companies often hire entertainers that are amateurs and are not truly professional. Companies should book entertainers with previous company experience in order to be absolutely certain that the entertainment will be appropriate. The performers for your event should also present themselves as ambassadors for your organization and product. The best corporate entertainment should possess the ability to motivate your employees and guests to network, while also having a great and memorable time. The corporate entertainer should be able to customize his or her presentation to incorporate important messages you need your group to hear, whether it is subtle or overt. In other words, the performance aspect of your corporate entertainment is important, but your entertainer absolutely needs to have excellent communication skills.
