As event planners, you know that the best corporate party entertainment ideas are one essential piece of the event. For your goals to be met and the company to be represented appropriately, you need to make sure that the acts are top notch as well.

That’s why today we’re focusing on the top traits you should be searching for when choosing the corporate entertainment for your event.

What Do You Need to fine the Best Corporate Party Entertainment?

After you decided on the possible dates, themes, venues, and budgets for your event, you should start considering the entertainment. Before beginning to contact agencies, have a clear idea of what you’ll need the act for.

Top Traits to Spot in the Best Corporate Party Entertainment

Depending on the company and the type of event, you can choose to have:

  • An interactive performance that guests get to be part of
  • Background entertainment which is used to gather the attention around a networking area
  • The main event speaker or comedian, which relaxes and warms up the audience before company speakers and awards.

It all depends on how you’re organizing the event and its final goal. But you need to have an idea to choose the best option for you.

1. The Act Has to Be Memorable

Think back to the best corporate party entertainment you have enjoyed. There was a spark which doesn’t let you forget that particular act. What makes the act memorable can vary depending on the artistic field it comes from.

It can be a ventriloquist like Michael Harrison, which will make you laugh as hard as you did in your childhood. Alternatively, jugglers like the Passing Zone, which keep you on the edge of your sit:

You need to make sure that the type of performance you choose is connected with the message you are communicating with the event. At the same time, it should stay in the mind of those attending.

Booking the Best Corporate party entertainment can be a great way to repackage your message and present it to your guests.

2. Checking That They Are Credible and Professional Entertainers

Even if performance at an event is a fun moment, you still need to do your due diligence. This means checking the background of the person that you are considering booking for the event. Professionals will have testimonials, and you can even ask for letters of recommendation.

As you can see for example on Heidi Schwartz’ s profile. You can find varied opinions from people she has worked with:

Heidi is professionalism, beauty, creativity, grace, and quirky-ness personified! I have used her for several major corporate functions, one in fact that involved painting the entire group from a revolving stage in the center of the room as they dined. Her abstract eye and free spirit is infectious and an amazing, totally original addition to any large corporate event.” HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

The testimonials don’t only refer to her performance, but also to how she acts behind the scenes:

LOVED working with Heidi. She did a fantastic job and meshed so well with everyone. She’s professional and so easy to get along with. We’re also thrilled with the painting!

These will help you decide on the professional partner you’ll have in organizing the event, not just the result the audience will enjoy.
