It’s not enough for your corporate event to be memorable. It’s important to keep your attendees entertained and engaged.
The right entertainment can make your corporate event great. Event-goers today are heavily influenced by other events, such as festivals. They want more of the same.
These 10 entertainment ideas will inspire you to elevate your corporate event.
Entertainment idea #1: Escape room
Escape rooms are real-life puzzle games where you and your teammates must solve puzzles and complete tasks to escape. You and your team will play the role of the protagonists.
Escape rooms can be a great corporate entertainment idea because they encourage teamwork. Escape rooms make it interactive and offer the opportunity to bond with your team. Search for mobile escape rooms that offer a customized experience in your area.
Entertainment Idea #2: Karaoke
Karaoke is like pizza – always a good idea. If you’re looking to take it up a level, why not have karaoke performed by a live band? Your guests will be able to experience a “rockstar” experience that they’ll never forget.
Entertainment Idea #3: Virtual reality and augmented reality
Augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR), are becoming more accessible and common. It’s much easier to integrate the experience into your event.
A virtual skydiving simulator allows people to experience the thrill of skydiving from their event. Your attendees will have the opportunity to stretch their imaginations. Do you want VR but don’t have enough money? If you are willing to be creative and have the time, there are many DIY options.
Entertainment Idea #4: Interactive food & drink stations
Enjoy delighting attendees with interactive food and beverage stations scattered throughout your event. There are many creative ways to make sure your guests are happy and satisfied.
Entertainment idea #5 – Casino
Being a dealer is not as simple as it seems. It’s easy to set up a casino for your event, complete with professional croupiers, game tables, and slot machines. To save time and learn the rules, rent a service instead of doing it yourself. You mustn’t use real money in any city where your event occurs.
Entertainment idea #6: Cirque show
Cirque du Soleil and other acts have made it so that the word “circus” doesn’t instantly conjure up images of big tops or ringmasters. This art form can enhance your corporate event by making it more immersive. Hire acrobats, contortionists and aerial performers to add some mystery to your event.
Entertainment Idea #7: Graffiti Artist
It can be exciting to see a piece of art come alive on a large scale. Consider bringing in a graffiti artist to create a mural at your event if you have the space. The artwork will be an eye-catcher for attendees and will allow them to follow its progress. You can also include a raffle and use the finished product as a prize.
Entertainment Idea #8: Social Photo Booths
People love to share photos taken at events, especially booth photos, as evidenced by Instagram’s popularity. The social booth is an easy and quick way to keep attendees entertained and engaged. These booths allow people to take stills, videos, or GIFs easily and then share them directly to their social media accounts.
Entertainment Idea #9: Corporate comedian
A corporate comedian can be a great entertainment option, depending on the theme of your event. Corporate comedians keep the language simple and focus on business topics. They also poke fun at aspects of work-life that are bordering on absurd. To ensure your comedian isn’t offensive, look out for experienced comedians working in “clean” environments.
Entertainment Idea #10: Customizable Swag Stations
Free stuff is great, but it should only be something they want. Most giveaways are useless and end up in the trash. You can send your attendees home with swag that they will keep. A customizable swag station with fresh items is a great way to give them swag.
