Many corporate event organizers want to create a fun and exciting program that their guests will enjoy and remember.
However, having an event that will be the talk of the town is no easy task and requires you to go the extra mile.
There is no need to worry; we have written this article to show you a few ways to achieve this – should you decide to make your event more interesting for your guests.
1. The Fun Is for Everyone
If you’re interested in getting people excited and looking forward to the program, you should explore the idea of having interactive activities in which everyone can participate.
A corporate event is more engaging and fun if everyone can chime in on the action. This is because audience participation makes an event more spontaneous and can add positive competition.
You can integrate group activities into the program in many ways. Still, you must be mindful of the event’s theme, how easygoing your guests are, and if the venue permits a large-scale activity.
2. Take Your Guests by Surprise
People like to have their expectations subverted. If they walk into your event’s venue knowing what to expect, there’s not much to be intrigued or excited about.
By simply seeing the event’s schedule, guests have already decided what activities they will attend. However, there’s something you can do to throw them off. You can add a secret or surprise activity to your event’s program.
You can then hire an entertainer like a magician to perform live to the audience, which was daring enough to attend the secret meeting.
3. Give Them Something to Laugh About
Sometimes, laughter is the cure to all problems. This makes laughter an effective solution to get people more interested in your corporate event.
If you feel like your event lacks entertainment, then you can go the old-fashioned route and have a hilarious stand-up comedy routine as part of the main event plenary.
At first, this may seem like an unfitting idea for more formal events, but do consider that comedy and public speaking can go hand in hand – with many stand-up comedians being great corporate speakers or vice-versa.
4. Provide People with the Opportunity to Learn
From our experience, people are often very open about learning new things. Giving your corporate event an educational angle will ignite people’s interest and passion for new ideas.
You get bonus points if the information is something they most likely haven’t heard about yet.
We are thinking that your guests will enjoy hearing about technological and scientific innovations, or maybe they would want to hear larger-than-life stories from which they can learn valuable lessons.
Many professionals can hold talks about various topics – all you need to do is find the one who fits your event.
