Everyone can recall what it feels like to attend an event that’s been lackluster in the entertainment department. good news is, it doesn’t have to, and there are all sorts of ways to dial up the excitement factor on your next event. Here are a few of our out-of-the-box favorites.
Who doesn’t love puppies?! By partnering with a local animal shelter or animal welfare group, attendees get a chance to snuggle with cuddly fuzzballs and the sponsoring organization gets more chances for the pups to be adopted. That’s one awesome swag bag – and it adds a charitable dynamic to your event. You can even go digital with a “puppy-cam” that allows at-home attendees to interact and even adopt a new friend themselves.
Nothing gets a dance party going faster than a futuristic dancing robot complete with lasers, dry-ice “smoke” and more. TI Bots is just one such company taking entertainment in a new direction. Not looking for space-age dance party? Think about how much more effective team building can be if the mission is to overthrow robot invaders.
Smartphone Scavenger Hunt
Great for getting out of the ballroom and getting out and about in town, attendees receive clues via their smartphones with directions on where to go, what to look for, and how to unlock the next clue. It may be finding a local landmark and snapping a selfie. Or, it may be looking for a costumed individual and speaking the right trademark local phrase to get a password or QR code unlocking the next step. A mix of individual and team challenges serves as ice breakers and lets digital attendees get involved.
It’s comedy. It’s music. It’s unforgettable – because it’s also completely customizable and fully interactive. As two seasoned musicians play piano covers of popular songs and take requests, your guests get to sing along to crowd-pleasing favorites. Spend time prior to your event asking performers for specific songs as part of the playlist, or see what they come up with for theme music for keynote speakers and award recipients.
At VIBE, we pride ourselves on suggesting entertainment options that are not only tailored to your brand and the purpose of your event, but that are also not just another DJ (not that there’s anything wrong with that either). Make sure to ask us about unique solutions at various budget levels. You may be surprised how affordable many options can be.
