If you’ve been tasked with booking the corporate entertainment for your next company event then you are probably asking yourself how you can go about sourcing and booking a suitable entertainment act. It is not easy for individual companies to secure the services of corporate entertainers and your best bet would be to acquire the services of a professional company who specialises in both dealing with and organising these types of events. After all, it makes sense for celebrities and entertainers to deal directly with these specialist corporate entertainment companies as they provide a central point of contact for both the entertainer and the client.
Corporate entertainment companies are specialists in knowing what type of act will meet the requirements of your event. A good corporate entertainment provider will provide you with a one-to-one event manager who will go through all of your event details and suggest some of the potential acts or celebrities who would be available to perform at your event. They will also go through the exact costs for each of the different options and will ensure that the entertainer chosen will fall within your event budget.
Once your corporate entertainer has been chosen, you can either choose to work alongside your event manager to finalise the event arrangements or you can task the event manager to complete all of the event details by themselves. The latter option may incur a higher cost but investing in a specialist event organiser may just be worth it to ensure your event goes off without a hitch.
Corporate entertainers cover a vast spectrum of acts and are not solely limited to the role of the after-dinner speaker. Each entertainer brings a unique element to your corporate function and you can work with your event manager to ensure that the entertainer knowsthe specific purpose of the event.
Your events manager may suggest a well-known celebrity after-dinner speaker if your company is looking to build on the culture and ethos of your company’s success. An Olympian or famous athlete describing their struggles and achievements over adversity can easily be used to inspire your workforce on to greater and better things. If your corporate entertainment is to be used for a smaller, more intimate event that requires a more subtle background performance, then they may suggest an orchestral or balletic performance as a perfect accompaniment. For those events where you are looking to really impress potential new clients, they may suggest a famous band or media celebrity who will be instantly recognisable to both your staff and guests.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to corporate entertainment. In order to choose the best corporate entertainer for your event you need to know what your company ultimately wants to achieve from the event itself. You may need to impress an important visiting client or you may want to inspire your staff on to greater success. Whatever the reason, your event manager will be able to help you to secure the right corporate entertainer for your event.
