Ten Tips to Book Entertainment for Corporate Events

It can be overwhelming to find entertainment for corporate holiday parties, conferences or corporate conventions. There are thousands of corporate entertainers that can be great, bad, or just plain awful. This list will provide some guidance on how to narrow your search and find entertainment that will make your event a success.

#10 – PLAN Ahead. For the most sought-after dates, corporate entertainers are booked up quickly. In the peak corporate holiday season (Nov-Jan), entertainers may book well in advance, often up to a year. Do not let disappointment happen and begin looking for entertainment as soon you know the date.

#9 – KNOW YOUR WANT (AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY WHAT YOUR AUDIENCE WANTS). If you know what type of entertainment would be most suitable for your group, it will make your search easier. Popular corporate entertainment includes:

COMEDY – A great way to have your group laugh together is comedy. Comedy acts don’t need to be stand-up comedians. Corporate comedy acts often incorporate magic, juggling, and other variety performances into their comedy shows. The variety ensures that everyone can enjoy the show.

Whatever comedy act you choose, make sure it is appropriate for your group. There are many definitions of clean comedy. Ask for a sample video to see what they mean (see #1).

MUSIC – There are many headline artists and bands available for corporate events.

MAGIC – There is a variety of corporate magicians available. Some magicians perform strolling magic, while others have large illusion shows with special effects. Others specialize in comedy magic that makes your audience laugh. No matter what type of corporate entertainment you’re looking for, make sure you find a magician who is only skilled in that particular style. Although you may hear some magicians say they can do all things – comedy, illusions, and even walking, they are often only good at one style. Hire a professional corporate magician that specializes in one type of magic to put on the best show. Because they specialize in one type of magic, these performers are the best in their fields.
