Event and entertainment go hand in hand. No one likes attending a boring and monotonous event. To keep your crowd engrossed into the event and to up the game at interaction you must insert a certain spark and vibrance to the event with entertainment, so that your event becomes a memory for the guest.
Here are some points to consider before setting up entertainment slots at your event!
Theme- Everything should be in synchronisation, so ensure that the special acts that you choose fall in accordance to the theme of the event. A glamourous glitzy act is of no use at a corporate event, so be fully aware about your setting and also what all matches and keep aside whatever contrasts.
Audience- An act is only of purpose if the audience understands it and it leaves an impact on them. Study different audience dynamics, preferences and demographics before setting an entertainment slot at the event. You can take inspirations from current happenings to engage guests.
Budget- Every project be it an event or a venture has a budget allocated behind it. So, while allocating budgets to the different of the event, do keep aside a different amount for the entertainment in your event. Ensure you do not exceed the budget decided upon.
Resources- While setting up special acts at your event keep in mind the resources such as venue, man power, sponsors , in-house supplies and etc so that there is no use to put in extra efforts and time or even money to get things done if it is already available with us.
Licensing- Some acts such as fire acts, acrobatic acts require different permissions and licenses to move on forward sometimes from the government , sometimes form the superiors and sometimes even the artists take different permissions from the event managers to carry out certain acts and showcase certain amusements.
Main agenda- Every event has its aim, its purpose to meet, after all it is like a step towards achieving an agenda for organisation. So while confirming entertainment ideas keep in mind that you do not de-rail from the main agenda decided upon.
Event schedule- Once you have decided what are your acts going to be adhere to the event schedule and plan , keep the important events such as addresses and panels a priority, keep the different special acts at equal intervals of the show so that the POA is undisturbed.
Time Limit- An entertaining act, if prolonged over a long duration comes across to be boring and the audience looses interest, so keep it of the right length and also if there is a beginning and closing act , then keep in mind the time limit and the time at which the event should stop, take an interval or even start.
Network Link- You can also consider adding act of different artist , who you are already in touch with, this will cut down the time which otherwise will be consumed to find a new artist. Or else you can get in touch with artists through references or even snowball referernces. The world is a small place!
