Corporate events tend to become too uptight to the point that the message that was meant to be delivered get lost in the sea of boring talks and speeches. Although it may be done to achieve various goals for a company, there seems to be an unbreakable status quo that such affairs should be very serious in nature.
This shouldn’t always be the case. In fact, it is important to make such occurrence memorable for it to open new opportunities of ideas from the attendees. Make sure to put on a show that everyone will remember by trying out these seven unique entertainment ideas:
- Interactive Food Stations
Interactive food stations are now the new trend in catering. In fact, there are dozens of ideas you can have with this kind of unique entertainment, depending on the type of event you are planning. You can try having chef shadowboxes, a frozen sushi station, or even a fruit wallpaper for healthy snacking at corporate events. The possibilities are endless.
- Social Photo Booths
People absolutely love taking pictures of themselves even before the birth of social media. In fact, photo booths have been popular ever since 1925 and continues to be so until today. Take advantage of this fact and put up a photo booth for your corporate events. Be sure to include a creative twist specially-made for your affair to make it a photo booth unlike any other.
- Contests and Game Shows
Nothing pumps up a crowd better than a competition. It becomes even more interesting if the prizes are valuable or uniquely useful. Also, add a special twist that is unique to the corporate event you are planning to make your attendees remember it. Some of the popular contests you can modify are “In It to Win It,” “Beat the Banker,” or “Are You Smarter than a Grade Schooler.”
- Corporate Comedian
Comedy never fails to put a smile on everyone’s faces. In fact, even company bosses and C-level executives might find it entertaining to have someone who pokes fun at otherwise serious matters like inflation and even the current government administration. All you need to do is look for someone who can deliver it well.
- Cover Band
Music is the life of the party. It becomes even more entertaining if you can hire an entire band who plays good music that the corporate event attendees will surely love. Of course, you should do some research first on what genre most of the guests like. Who knows? You might even trigger enough nostalgia to make some of them join the fun and perform with the musicians on stage. If you do this, your event will surely be the talk of the office several weeks later.
- Casino Party
Before you decide that your corporate event has enough entertainment to last the entire day, you should think twice. After all, nothing keeps the ball rolling better than a casino party. Like photobooths and food stations, this is an ongoing entertainment that may continue to get the attendees attention throughout the event. However, experts recommend rentals over do-it-yourself casinos as learning all the rules in each game and acting as a dealer can be quite difficult.
- Comedy Improv Show
Aside from roping in a stand-up comedian to deliver some clever jokes, it is also a good idea to bring in some comedy improv to your corporate party. This works well for workshops and team building events as it allows attendees to participate as the actual performers. It also saves a lot of money from hiring too many professional comedians to add color to the affair.
