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 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. 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 have their undivided attention and interaction 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 so you must be willing to adapt to set yourself apart from the rest. This will result in giving 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 consider when creating the best event.
We know from experience that relationships are created between attendees who got involved in activities and experiences together. This will have 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 and/or 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 should be made with a common theme and desired objective in mind.
Below are some of our entertainment offerings that can be incorporated into your next event. We know from experience these will 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
- Rollerbladers or wearable tables
All serving food and drinks while interacting with guests. Ideas like this will get people talking and act as conversation starters as well as creating memorable experiences.
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, can be both memorable and get the audience members involved. It also gets attendees talking afterwards and discussing what they have just seen.
Invite street entertainers to create an urban atmosphere at your event. They are always popular because of their innovative approach to performing. You could offer a variety of options from beat-boxers, tricking, break dancers or homemade instruments.
Laughter can create positive memories associated with your event. 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 an excellent form of entertainment that appeals to many attendees. It can 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 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, and keep attendees busy and engaged. They create fun, raise brand and event awareness, and provide great evidence to remember the event long after it is over.
Cool and unique backgrounds are perfect for all events. They are a great way of engaging audiences, delivering messages, and promoting a brand. They also enhance the theme of an event and create a fun environment through custom designs and imagery. Different and unique materials can be designed and sometimes branded to leave lasting impressions on guests. They are a great way to encourage people to take pictures and share with others online and in person.
Everything from beach balls, balloons, confetti, giant inflatables, mic, costumes, bubbles or fake snow can make the experience more magical. Having props makes the experience photo-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. For example, announcing a winner of a competition. Lighting can really make an event experience extra special, when used creatively and uniquely.
Providing games at events creates interaction and can elevate the event experience for the guest. Guests can play fun games while they learn and network. Games provide great interaction and enjoyment which everyone loves. Games can have a huge impact on the guest experience, when carefully and strategically placed throughout the event. Examples include casino tables, hitting a target or mentally-challenging games.
Partial face paints such as intricate patterns and smaller designs can be painted on either side of the face or across the eyes.
