Informative as it might be, a conference is not generally perceived as being the most entertaining of events. However, if the right strategies are used, a conference can be turned into an exciting event that everyone will look forward to.

This is important because a conference gives plenty of opportunities to capitalize on the enthusiasm of your audience to get essential points across.

That being said, here are three ways you can take your audience by surprise and boost their level of enjoyment when attending the conference.

1. Set Up a Debate

Your audience will most likely attend the conference expecting to hear a new idea or be introduced to a new concept. This is the perfect occasion to shake things up and spread ideas differently for an exciting event.

And what better way to do it than through an organized exchange of ideas? You will soon find that many people will have something new to add to the discussion and get involved.

Thus, the conference will be a lot more interactive and engaging, which is always a plus.

For example, you can have a special guest to bring counterpoints to what has already been discussed. On the other hand, if you want to get in touch with the audience directly; you can invite them to give their input during a Q&A session.

2. Use Magic as Your Inspiration

How about a theme which incorporates elements that people typically associate with magic for your conference?

The main stage and the theatre-like atmosphere of a large conference venue can be used to your advantage. Who says that a conference can’t be both a learning experience and a show to remember at the same time?

And just so it happens, we have the right entertainer who would be a perfect fit for your event.

Randy Charach is both a keynote speaker and a headline entertainer, and his talks touch on topics related to corporate culture. What makes him stand out from other speakers is that Randy infuses practical business lessons with world-class entertainment in his programs which can include magic, mentalism, and humor.

3. Make It Strange

“Laugh and let yourself be inspired!”

This is the kind of advice that everybody could stand to benefit from, right? However, clean comedian Glenn Strange proves that it’s also instrumental when it comes to making your conference worth remembering.

Glenn has always loved making people laugh, so a career as an entertainer was an obvious choice. Glenn entered the entertainment world by performing at children’s birthday parties. Later, he branched out into public speaking as well but remained true to his roots in entertainment.

His clean humor, natural knack for entertaining audiences and thought-provoking stories make him a perfect choice for a performance that is both amusing and insightful. 

An Exciting Event Challenges the Status Quo

If done right, a conference has the potential to become “the event of the year” in the eyes of your audience. We hope that these ideas have inspired you to think outside the box and turn your conference into an exciting event.

If you want one of the entertainers mentioned in this article to be a part of an upcoming event, then you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to book them now!
