Nowadays, there are many options to choose from when it comes to picking corporate entertainment. However, faced with all those options, it can be challenging to narrow it down and make a decision which will please guests and elevate your event.

The key here is to remind yourself that choosing the best entertainer for your event means choosing the right entertainer for your event.

With that in mind, here are four smart tips to consider when browsing for the best corporate entertainers.

4 Clever Tips for Choosing the Best Corporate Entertainers

1. Think About the Role the Entertainment Will Play at Your Event

Do you want the entertainment to be the center of attention? Then maybe you need a music band who will put on an energizing show and be the main attraction for the night.

However, if the role of the entertainment is to support other things or activities, then pick an entertainer whose act will subtly fade into the background, like a piano player.

More often than not, the type of event you are hosting will help you figure out whether you want the entertainment to be the one thing most people remember about your event – or if you want it to be just a subtle ingredient in its success.

2. Ensure the Entertainment Will Be Relevant to Your Guests

One of your key concerns when picking the best corporate entertainers should be what kind of material will be presented on stage.

If you hire a comedian, will the jokes make sense to the vast majority of the guests? If you’ve employed a cover band, will the music be easy to recognize/fun to dance to for guests? What content will inspire them and speak to their sensibilities?

To know the answers to all these questions, you have to know a little bit more about your guests than just how many of them will be at the event.

  • study their age range before you start auditioning talent
  • you can even conduct a short survey, asking what type of entertainment they would like to see at the event.

Although it may be tempting to choose something you like, always prioritize the tastes of your guests over yours. Hire an act which will speak to their interests and preferences for a successful evening.

3. Sign a Detailed Agreement

It’s prevalent for the best corporate entertainers to have written contracts ready for you to sign and go.

However, if possible, write a detailed contract which covers every small detail of the agreement and any special requests you may have discussed with the entertainer beforehand.

For example, if you decide to hire a musical act, you may want to include a list of must-play songs and a list of don’t play songs into the contract, as well.

This way, you have more control over how the performance is going to go and ensure you’re 100% happy with the choice you’ve made in terms of securing entertainment for the event.
