Corporate Event Entertainment Ideas

Corporate Event Entertainment Ideas

Are you an event planner responsible for the corporate event entertainment ideas for a Fortune 500 company, small business, or office event? Or maybe it’s a private affair. Do we have this right? Listen, we have plenty of fantastic event ideas listed below, but whether it’s a product launch, conference event, or a corporate party, drive this one point home. The more you can get your attendees and invited guests engaged, involved and talking about your event, the better! The objective is to put on an event that gives everyone memorable experiences while achieving the main goals of the event itself. All the event decisions should be lined up to support the achievement of that objective. After you get all your ideas lined up, start thinking about how to cohesively integrate those ideas into your event.

Creative Corporate Event Entertainment Ideas

When it comes to corporate event entertainment ideas, there is just one problem you are likely to encounter. The feeling of “been there, done that” lingering around in the minds of your guests the moment they are invited to the event. The truth is, they are probably right. But you can really change that perception by doing something different and innovative from very the start. You can make them feel good when they think about the upcoming event. You can make them feel excited and eager to attend. You can make them feel important! And the sooner, the better!

So how do you do that? You do something that no one else is doing. You do it with the most overlooked, untapped and underutilized opportunity available to you. The invitations! It’s true; the way you invite your guests and VIPs can make all the difference. So, be different!

Sending Gigeo® personalized video invitations is the easiest way to engage your guests and VIPs while creating a buzz long before your event begins.

 Corporate Event Entertainment Ideas for Event Planners

Below you’ll see a large variety of creative, inspiring, innovative and out of the ordinary event ideas to get your event planning going in the right direction.

Robots That Interact
Walking and talking robots are a very innovative addition to company events, including trade shows, exhibitions, conferences, or large-scale walking events, to meet and receive guests. You could even use robots for things like mixing drinks.

Sand Sculpture Artists
Sand sculpture artist, corporate sand artists have soared in popularity. These talented artists will perform customized sand art for all kinds of corporate events, indoors and outdoors. All you need is an open area for your sandbox!

iPad Magicians and Illusionists
iPad Magicians provide cutting-edge magic shows that use the latest iPad technology and performance techniques (and humor!) to interact and entertain corporate audiences. They can merge products, messages, and logos.

High Energy Drumming Display
Corporate percussion groups are geared towards corporate clients and can enhance the theme of your event. They can use products such as recycled materials, ladders, machinery, etc., to perform. The drumming performance is very exciting, fast-paced, high-energy with loud sound effects. All of which is amazingly entertaining to watch and listen!

Dance and Visual Performances
So far, video mapping dance groups have proven to be a huge success in corporate events. With the fusion of humans and computers, new technologies enable performers to take dance and visual performance to a new level. These performances can include specific music and graphics, as well as logos and company messages.

Indoor Snow Fall
Snow fall can bring smiles and happiness to any event, especially when it occurs in unexpected areas of the event venue. You can do giveaways when people are located in one of the chosen areas of fake precipitation.

Aquatic Show
These teams of professional synchronized swimmers execute seamless routines that are popular at product launches, company parties, and other company events. They can create customized performances, making them unique and personalized entertainment options in a poolside environment.

Laser Wizardry
LED and laser shows are a must-have for corporate entertainment due to their popularity. Incorporate your logos to interact and engage your guests.

Birdcage Entertainment
Birdcage entertainers make for ideal corporate entertainment, especially if you don’t have time or enough space for large activities. No matter what the entertainers do from the inside, the “birdcage” will elevate (literally) your entertainment.

Attendee Hall of Fame
Attendee image galleries make for a fun entertainment activity in areas designed around waiting or networking. You can turn your corporate photos into less serious, funny photos. Or you can use projection mapping to alter them in a humorous style. Your guests’ eyes will be fixed on them!

Laughter Yoga and Humor Therapists
Laughter Yoga will get your employees letting off some steam from an otherwise stressful working environment. The difference between a laughter therapist and a comic is that the therapist usually provides coping techniques to cope with stress and sometimes shares their own difficulties and stories of how humor helps them overcome challenges.

 

Are you in charge of a community event, an evening gala, an inauguration party or the entertainment ideas for an office party? The objectives and goals of most corporate events will differ substantially for every event. This makes the planning, production and execution of your entertainment ideas geared towards your goals very different from other events. Because of this, it can be quite challenging to square the corporate objectives and goals for the event you are planning. Additionally, there is the added pressure for new creative and innovative guest experiences and event ideas. And it really makes no difference whether the event is for live, in-person attendees or a virtual event.
