Whether for a convention, corporate conference or meeting, or social event, having the right entertainment is critical to your success. If you’re headed to Miami, our professional team at Events & Logistics can handle it all for you to ensure your event is the most memorable ever for those who attend. Whether a magician, comedian, band, play, or other form of entertainment, you need that “WOW” factor! Here are a few tips to help ensure your entertainment doesn’t fall flat.
Consider the age of your guests. Will the majority of your guests be students or younger people, or older/mature professionals? Younger people enjoy entertainment ranging from circus/fire acts, podium dancing, and a wide range of music – but be sure whatever entertainment you choose, it’s relevant to your theme.
Professionals and older adults often prefer entertainment that in a word, is tasteful. From a live band or solo pianist to fantastical acts or a play, make your entertainment complementary to your theme, and unique/appealing in some way.
Theme. Regardless of whether your event has a beach theme, one that coincides with a holiday such as St. Patrick’s Day or Halloween, or a theme that is related to your brand, choose entertainment that reinforces or complements your theme.
When hiring entertainment, consider whether the band/performer has an agency, insurance, or charges additional fees. Entertainment agencies can take care of the legwork for you, saving you an incredible amount of time and effort. Agencies are also very capable in matching events/themes with the proper entertainment.
Liability insurance is another concern, and while most who are professionals carry their own, it’s important to know whether they are covered, as an injury can happen unexpectedly. Be sure to get a copy of the performer’s insurance certificate, and request that your group is listed on the policy as an additionally insured.
Fees can really add up. Some entertainers may charge fees for accommodations, travel, food, or other expenses you are not aware of on top of hourly rates for the performance. Be sure you know all fees that may be charged ahead of time!
