Since booking corporate entertainment is so important, why do so many companies try to do without? It all comes down to some common misconceptions about corporate entertainment.
Misconception 1: Corporate entertainment is a hassle to deal with.
We’ve all heard those stories of the crazy riders that celebrity entertainers come with – like all blue M and M’s in the dressing room. This has left many corporate event planners with the notion that all entertainers are difficult to deal with.
In most cases, experienced meeting entertainers have very few requests and they all have to do with giving your company the best entertainment experience possible. Best of all, when you work with an entertainment company that brings the entire show to you, you’ll only have to deal with the show coordinator. You can leave the rest of the details to the entertainment company.
Misconception 2: Corporate entertainment is a risk.
This is only partially true. Hiring an entertainer with no experience in the corporate world is a risk. There’s a big difference between the way someone entertains a private party and the way a business audience needs to be engaged.
By finding an event entertainment company that has proven experience in the corporate world you minimize your risk. Focus only on those entertainers who have worked with corporate audiences again and again.
Misconception 3: Corporate entertainment is an expense that can be avoided.
The success or failure of your event depends entirely on whether or not your event was memorable. People will come back to your event year after year if they’ve had fun and the best way to ensure that is with entertainment. Investing in entertainment for your meeting or event should be top priority for any company that wants to engage their audience and make a splash.
Don’t put meeting entertainment on the back burner! By hiring professionals in the corporate entertainment world, you can avoid these perceived problems and get the type of quality meeting entertainment that will have your audience ready to come back next year. By making it a selling point, you’ll draw more attendees in and create an event that is truly spectacular.
