Things to Focus on When Planning a Major Event – Part 2 of 4
Welcome to Part 2 of our 4 Part Blog Series! We are pleased to offer our readers insight into the key things we consider when planning corporate events at Bright Ideas. This week will focus on Entertainment.
Once you have decided on the timing, choose whether you want to include passive or interactive entertainment.
Passive entertainment occurs in the background and interactive entertainment occurs directly with your guests. Passive entertainment works well during dinners, award shows, and receptions. This sort of entertainment doesn’t require the full attention of your guests. It can occur in the background while your guests are enjoying themselves. Some passive entertainment examples might be a Jazz Trio, Harpist, or Cirque-Style Performers.
Interactive entertainment involves your guests and can be delivered in a myriad of ways. In the past we have hired interactive stage performers (illusionists, jugglers, magicians), roving interactive performers and Las Vegas Showgirls and they have interacted with the guest wonderfully!
We personally prefer interactive entertainment as we believe the guests like the “close up and personal” experience that comes when magic is performed right in front of their eyes. Most importantly – preview your entertainment in action BEFORE the event.
