If you want an engaging event, you can do a few things to capture your attendee’s attention. One of the best and easiest strategies you can choose is providing guests with activities to enrich their experience.

To help get the ball rolling, in this article, we’ll walk you through four interesting entertainment ideas that have proven to engage your guests.

1. Kick off the Program with a Concert

The start of your event will set the tone for the entire evening. That’s why you should consider booking a live band that will energize the audience from the get-go.

You can opt for solo singers, live music bands, or cover bands with guests singing along to their favorite songs. If the latter option suits your preferences, then we recommend it. They are an interactive cover band from the San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado.

Their songs cover all genres ranging from Latin-fueled Rock to modern Pop hits. They can take requests from your guests and perform jams from the ’50s to Today’s Current Top Singers.

With their high energy and upbeat tempos, The Valley Cats Band brings only brilliance and awe as they perform a show that you and your attendees will never forget. The band plays audience favorites, which will have people on the edge of their seats.

2. Games to Engage Your Guests

Gamification is an excellent way to change the pace of your event and regain your attendee’s attention. A simple way to engage your guest is by including a fun activity in which people collaborate or compete against each other.

By hosting a game, you will not only bring people together but will also create an enjoyable experience for everyone.

Depending on the nature of the event, you can opt to organize various game types, but we suggest you gauge the number of attendees. Depending on the size of the audience, you should pick a scalable game that, if needed, can accommodate a large number of participants.

For example, game formats such as Escape Room, Trivia, or Scavenger Hunt are great for getting people together. Through these games, participants formed teams and put their mettle to the test alongside their colleagues.

3. Invite a Keynote Speaker

Selecting the right speaker for your event is an excellent way to keep attendees engaged and interested. A good keynote speaker will turn the guests from passive observers to active participants.

For that, we recommend working with Gary Guller.

Gary is a record-setting mountaineer and an inspirational storyteller. In 2003 he became the first person with one arm to summit Mt. Everest. Since then, he has been traveling the globe, motivating people to be their best selves and deliver results.

His down-to-earth speaking style and thought-provoking topics make him an extremely popular choice for corporate occasions. His former clients include Google, IBM, Microsoft, Toyota, American Express, and Daimler Chrysler, to name just a few.

This A-list keynote speaker can create a one-of-a-kind experience to engage your guests.

4. Captivate Guests with an Interactive Magic Show

Delight guests with the mysterious world of magic. By booking a magic show for any upcoming event, you will likely spark everyone’s curiosity.

And to make it more engaging, consider working with a magician like Tim Kutch. He is a master illusionist from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, known for using audience participation. He can create not just a show but an interactive experience for attendees.

Tim will engage your guests, and he will keep them actively involved throughout the entire performance. He is a terrific option to warm up a crowd for holiday parties, cocktail hours, and other corporate environments.
