How to Make Your Event Entertaining

Without entertainment, your guests may suffer from boredom – which you obviously don’t want to happen at your event. When choosing entertainment for your upcoming event, whether it be a corporate event or celebration gathering with the entire family, there are a number of questions you will have to ask yourself. Right after booking a venue and developing a theme, choosing appropriate entertainment is the next biggest step. For some, this can be a daunting task – but don’t fret, we’ll help you figure out all the details.

The first thing to do when choosing entertainment is to decide what would be most appropriate for the type of event you are hosting. If you’re hosting a corporate party, disco dancers may not be the best choice (unless the theme is disco!). Finding appropriate and professional entertainment will help you create a memorable event for all your guests. When scoping out for entertainment, don’t just rely on friends and word of mouth. Book an appointment to screen them prior to your event.

The next thing to consider is whether the entertainment you have chosen will delight your guests. When looking at entertainment options, always imagine what your event will look like. Try to picture your guests at the party: will they have a glorious time or will they tune out the noise and run off? Imagining whether or not the entertainment will please your audience will help you determine which type of entertainment you should go forth with.

The third thing to decide is whether you’ll want to have passive or interactive entertainment at your event. This will be based on the timing of your event and where to allocate the entertainment within the schedule. Passive entertainment pleases guests in the background, while interactive entertainment fully engages your guests at a precise moment. This type of entertainment can be decided based on your audience and theme of event. Entertainers don’t necessarily have to be on stage – consider roaming entertainers that will help guests engage and mingle.

The point of entertainment is to create a fun filled environment for all your guests. The right entertainment will help you avoid the possibility of having crickets chirping! There are number of options to choose from that will serve the “Entertain Me” request, such as jugglers, musicians, bands, or acrobatic performers. Just remember: choose wisely and have fun!
