Unforgettable corporate event entertainment ideas

Due to the rise of digital meetings and seminars, it feels like people need to be enticed to attend in-person events in a post-pandemic world.  

In this article, we explore some of the most engaging and unique corporate event entertainment ideas that focus on creating a memorable experience that aligns with your brand’s core values.

How do you entertain people at an event?

It’s a simple question, but the answer requires careful thought.

Below, we have compiled the best entertainment options for corporate events that are sure to be a hit, but it is important to be mindful of your guests’ demographic and tailor the event to their interests.

Keynote speakers

Inspiring keynote speakers are a tried and tested addition to corporate events that have proven enduringly popular. Inviting influential speakers is a great way to draw in attendees while showing people that your company has its finger on the pulse. Industry experts can share insights and inspire an audience, generating a buzz and leaving a lasting impact.

Awards ceremonies

It may seem obvious, but awards ceremonies are one of the most impactful and meaningful ways of entertaining guests while making them feel valued. By recognising and celebrating the achievements of attendees, your corporate event is immediately transformed from an everyday occurrence to something glamorous and exciting. Guests might not remember everything that is talked about during the day, but they will certainly remember a stunning crystal glass award that will be a valued keepsake for years to come.

Interactive technology

In a digital age, it is important to embrace technology and make it part of any modern corporate event. There are countless ways to be innovative with tech, and a great example was demonstrated at a recent event held by the American Heart Association. By implementing a visual tool to tell their organisation’s social story, they collected and curated attendees’ posts on the day through hashtags, geotags and social feeds. Each post was then displayed on a live feed on their website and on a large screen at the event.

This simple but incredibly effective use of social media brought everyone in attendance together and generated a real buzz. The day was so successful that their dedicated hashtag trended for nine hours on Twitter, proving how engaging and effective utilising new-age tech as corporate event entertainment can be.

Interactive games and activities

Splitting up the day with interactive activities is another great way to give your guests and break while creating a fun networking or team building experience. Interactive games for hire is a huge industry that has grown over the past decade. Now you can incorporate virtual reality experiences, escape rooms and games that include everything from arcade machines to sports simulators. These activities are a surefire way to keep your attendees entertained, encourage interaction and help strangers become friends in a matter of minutes.

When it comes to organising corporate event entertainment, the goal will always be to curate a fun, interesting and unforgettable event that demonstrates who you are as a brand.

It is important to remember to choose entertainment options that resonate with the purpose of your event, engage attendees and is tailored to their needs and interests. By incorporating everything from awards to interactive activities, you can create a day that they won’t soon forget.
