In this article, we will look at 5 corporate event entertainment ideas that will wow your attendees and how to pull them off seamlessly.
5 corporate event entertainment ideas
Below we list 5 unique corporate event entertainment ideas that you may not have thought of before:
Fuel up with interactive food stations
It’s no secret that people love food. Especially free food! There’s nothing worse than poor quality or lacking food at an event. It is also good to fill people up with food if they will be drinking. Here are some interactive food station ideas:
- Make your own sushi: Hire a professional sushi chef to create your attendees’ custom orders. There is nothing better than fresh sushi, especially when it contains your favourite fillings.
- Cupcake decorating: Although this might get a little messy, it will bring out the inner child in everyone. You can create a cute frosting station with all sorts of edible decorations. Don’t forget to provide boxes for your guests to take home their creations.
- Create your own cocktail: Everyone loves a good cocktail. So why not hire some professional mixologists to help your guests create their own delicious fantasy drink. You can even run a competition for the most inventive name.
- End of the night takeaway: Hire a fast-food truck to sit at the exit. This means people can go home with a delicious burger and fries (a great idea if they’ve had a little too much to drink). It’s sure to be a hit!
Rev up the crowd with a live band
Music is a great way to warm up an event and get people dancing. Sometimes DJs are not enough, so consider hiring a live band. If you have chosen a particular theme for the night, such as an era, hire a band that matches this. For example, if your theme is the 1960’s then hire a cover band to play all the classic songs from that era. People love to dance and get transported back in time by old favourite songs.
Set up a photo booth
This Hollywood trend has become a staple for pretty much any event! With modern technology, photo booths have become more like mini professional photoshoots. With amazing lighting and picture quality.
You can get booths that link directly to your guests’ phones so that they can download the images instantly. Plus have printable options which can come out on retro looking polaroid films. Even set up a website where your guests can view the photos later on.
Don’t forget to include dress-ups and props. These can match your theme and decorations. People love to take silly photos with fun costumes.
Hire a celebrity impersonator
Celebrity impersonators can add a lot of life to your event. You may even be able to match them to your theme. If you have chosen a particular movie as your theme, then get the impersonators to match the characters.
Your impersonators can either perform on stage or mingle in the crowd. This can be a fun and interactive activity. You may even get them to impersonate the boss (with their approval) which can be great fun for their employees. It is sure to create a buzz in the office for weeks to come.
Break the ice with a corporate comedian
Last, but not least on our list of great corporate event entertainment ideas is having a comedian. A corporate comedian is someone who specialises in corporate events. This means they will stay away from inappropriate or offensive material. You can approve their act before time if you need to. They will often poke fun at everyday office life, which is a fun relatable topic for your corporate attendees.
