5 entertainment tips to make your events stand out

There are some fantastic acts out there for event planners but ensuring that you pick the right entertainment for your private party or corporate event is crucial. Not only that, guests will expect to remember the occasion. So… here are a few tips to help you on your way.

1. Do Your Research

This tip sounds obvious but you’d be surprised how many people don’t do their research prior to booking. Look at photos, watch YouTube videos and assess reviews online. Entertainment isn’t cheap so it’s always best to give yourself some piece of mind and guarantee that you are getting what you are paying for. You can also search for entertainment acts and speak to them directly at large scale events like IBTM World.

2. Pick Entertainment to set the Tone

Entertainment is essential for setting the tone of your event. Choosing a stand up comedian will provide a completely different mood to a glowing dance show for example, so pick carefully depending on the demographic and aims of the event.

3. Don’t Hide Your Entertainment Away

Entertainment is there to ensure that you have fun! Many events place their background music in the corner, which is fine but ultimately forgettable. Many of our best memories are related to entertainment-based experiences so be sure to utilise your booking to their full potential by placing them front and centre within your venue and to your audience.

4. Know your Limits

Before signing on the dotted line, be sure to find out about any sound limiters the venue you’re hosting in might have in place or you may not be able to book that rocking function band you’ve had your eye on.

5. Go Bespoke

If you want something truly special that will undoubtedly carry the wow factor, why not go bespoke? Incorporating your theme and coming up with something unique is all part of creating your own act and ensures that guests will walk away having been absolutely stunned by the entertainment you’ve provided.

So there you have it. Entertainment is vital to ensuring that all of your guests have a great time and best of all, remember your event for years to come! Good luck!

  1. I don’t think I could ever throw a big event like this, but my brother has been talking about it recently. I guess there’s some type of party for entertainment he’s been wanting to throw. I’m more of a girl to just go online for news & entertainment.

  2. It is nice that you have advised us to put the entertainment or entertainers upfront and center. We will definitely take note of this. In any case, we will need help from an event entertainment group to lend us their talents.

  3. I agree with what you said that an individual or a company that is looking for entertainment service should do extensive research so they can be assured with whom they’re hiring. My boss wants me to look for performing arts center acts to hire for the company’s corporate event next month. I’ll follow your tip and look at photos, videos, and read reviews only thoroughly so I can pick the right entertainment service. Thanks for this!
