Creating Experiences at Events Through Entertainment

When it comes to creating an event, no matter what type or for what industry, it is all about creating a memorable and fun experience for the attendees. Delivering an experience that people will talk about to others for a long time is the key to a successful event and satisfied event goers. As human beings, we enjoy positive interactions and connections. When chances for these types of experiences are well thought of and incorporated into an event, it makes it truly special.

Creating these types of experiences are not as easy as people may think. Lots of event management companies struggle to do this. You might wonder how can these be created? The answer is giving people something that is enjoyable, unexpected and unseen before that will captivate them and completely have their full attention and involvement at the event.

In this constantly changing world of ideas, standing out can be difficult. Creativity and risk taking is key to creating a memorable experience and a successful event for the client. Bringing together exciting new ideas, helps your event stand out. The same approach for every event won’t work, you must be willing to adapt and change to set yourself apart from the rest and give people a wonderful experience that will be lodged in their minds for a long time. Fresh, up-to-date and dynamic are important things to keep in mind when trying to create the best event you can.

The more people get involved with the activities and experiences at your event, the better relationships are created between attendees which has a positive impact on the affiliation to the event holder’s brand. You don’t have to bombard people with games and experiences from start to finish but some fun and adrenaline rushing activities placed throughout the event location can add great value to people’s day/night. Understanding the reasons and goals that a person wants from the event is key to determine what activities should and can be incorporated into the event. Without this, there is no structure or consistency with an approach, all decisions when event planning should be done along with a common theme and with the desired objective. Here are some of our entertainment offerings that can be incorporated into your event to keep your guests engaged and have a great experience.

Interactive Wait Staff
If you have large crowds but minimal space, particularly for staging, you can get on their level by having interactive waiting staff. This could be in the form of singing or dancing staff as well as impersonators, rollerbladers or wearable tables all serving food and drinks while interacting with guests. Ideas like this get people talking and act as conversation starters as well as memorable ideas and experiences.

Magicians
For wow-factor entertainment, magicians can leave an impact if they are done correctly. They are usually a stage show but can also do miniature tricks if you prefer to have walking or mingling entertainment. The magician whose tricks are demonstrated using mental capabilities, such as mind reading, which is both memorable and gets several audience members involved. It also gets attendees talking afterwards and discussing what they have just seen.

Street Entertainers
Invite street entertainers to create an urban atmosphere at your event. They are always popular because of their innovative approach to performing and you could offer a variety of options from beat-boxers, tricking, break dancers or homemade instruments.

Comedians
Laughter can create positive memories associated with your event and a good comedian can also act as an MC for other elements of the event. Make sure you hire a comedian whose subject matter will fit your tone and demographic, otherwise you could be memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Music / MC
Music is emotive so it can be an excellent entertainment idea that appeals to many attendees and can even change people’s mood and perceptions. Make this more interesting by having unique instruments or something different, for example, dueling pianos on stage. You could also split the crowd into groups and have a musical riff-off against one another, or have them complete musical challenges such as singing lines one after the other to create an echo effect and for ultimate group participation.

Fun Photography
Fun Photography green screens are a great way to engage event attendees and give them something they can leave with to remember the event. These cool products take the pleasure of excitement and memories to the forefront. Green-screen Photography allows great opportunities for networking at the event with people you may not know, they promote real-time event sharing, keep attendees busy and engaged, create fun, raise brand and event awareness and provide great evidence to remember the event long after it is over.

Cool/Unique Backgrounds
Cool and unique backgrounds are perfect for all events. They are a great way of engaging audiences, delivering messages, promoting a brand, enhancing the theme of an event or just creating a fun environment through custom designs and imagery. Different and unique materials are designed and sometimes branded to leave lasting impressions on guests. They are great to encourage people to take pictures with and share with others online and in person.

Crowd Props
Everything from beach balls, balloons, confetti, giant inflatables, mic, costumes or even bubbles or fake snow can make the experience more magical and photos worthy, particularly with huge crowds and audiences.

Lighting/Building Digital Mapping
Lighting is an important element to consider at events. Lighting can set a certain mood and create a distinct atmosphere, it can highlight event features, displays and add to moments, i.e. announcing a winner of a competition. When used creatively and uniquely it can really make an event experience extra special.

Games
Using games at events get people involved, keeps their interest and elevates the event experience for the guest. Guests can play fun games at the events while they learn and network. Games provide great interaction and enjoyment which everyone loves. When carefully and strategically placed throughout the event they can have a huge impact on the guest experience. Some of these games might include casino tables, hitting a target or mentally challenging games.
