Headline entertainment is one of the best ways to increase attendance for your online event. Many people interested in your event decide whether to attend or not just after you announce the headliner.
While it may be a proven tactic to organize a successful virtual event, it may also be challenging. It happens mostly because organizers aren’t able to grasp the top benefits of booking a celebrity. Even more, many are afraid to do so and conclude it’s too much work.
You’ll see the benefits of hiring headline entertainment to overcome the risks.
Celebrities Bring Excitement and Authority
There is no doubt about it: having a celebrity appearance at your event adds an extra oomph to the guests’ overall experience. Almost anyone gets excited about the opportunity of seeing a famous person in a personal setting. Your program has greater importance, and people might even feel an emotional connection. That relationship eventually leads to higher credibility and trustworthiness.

Celebrities and Headline Entertainment Inspires Your Virtual Event
When you’re organizing a corporate party, one of its goals would be to make your employees relax and recharge their batteries after a stressful period. While some music and dancing could do the trick, it doesn’t guarantee your guests will feel empowered and excited to get back to work in the following days.
Instead, hiring a virtual keynote speaker – a seasoned professional with compelling success stories – would be a better option. This person may have an interesting background or history which can actively engage your audience, captivating their attention, and getting your unique messages across to them. The message will both inspire and empower your employees so that they get that precious feeling of ownership.
