The world of event entertainment has expanded tremendously with the growth of technology. If you want a corporate event to be more than the outdated, average office event then you will need to get the latest and most innovative entertainment equipment on the market. Professional event and entertainment specialists can help you budget and set up your event so it blows everyone out of the water!
Consider our nine tips for throwing an epic corporate event with fabulous entertainment!

Epic Event Tip One: Choose Your Event's Theme and Style

The first step in throwing a great corporate event is to decide on what the style needs to be for your party. You may need to keep it small and private with an acoustic guitar player or you might need to go all out with extravagant style for a big blow out. Whatever kind of party you are hosting, it is important to decide on the right music tempo, style of decor and setting before you being hiring entertainment services. Use a theme designed around what it is your company does or choose a fun seasonal theme or classic theme that will get people excited! To get started on the right foot check out these resourceful event planning apps.

Epic Event Tip Two: Hire Actors for Entertainment That Fit Your Theme

To really get party-goers having a great time, hire a few actors to play character roles during your event. Your guests will appreciate the extra effort you put into the event and will surely enjoy the fun photo opportunities that will present themselves with interactive actors!

Epic Event Tip Three: Book a Venue that Promotes Social Interaction!

The wrong venue can leave guests ready to get out. Take into consideration how many people will be attending the event because there is nothing worse than being squashed into a space for an entire party! When you choose a venue location, think about whether your are just providing drinks and appetizers or whether you are going to have a full course meal. If it is the latter then you will want a seating arrangement that still allows people to chat and socialize. Round tables work really well for conversation purposes, just make sure they aren't too close together and chairs can easily be slid from under the table without hitting the seat behind it. Your venue should be the right size for amount of guests as well as provide standing and dancing room. If you have a presentation or guest speaker, check to make sure you have a stage or podium within the venue that everyone on the floor can see.

Epic Event Tip Four: Light Up The Night With Lightscaping!

With all the advances in technology, we are lucky to have awesome lighting systems that can be personalized for events. A professional event coordinator will be fluent in lightscaping knowledge. Your event can use LED lighting to light up accent wall or display your corporation's name as a light monogram. Intelligent lighting involves matching lights to music tempo with speed, colors, etc. For a hit event, lightscaping will dramatize your venue and enhance photographs with awesome colored light detail.

Epic Event Tip Five: Choose Your Music Wisely!

The music you choose for your corporate event can set the atmosphere in a good or bad way depending on the format you choose to go with. For a small intimate setting, you don;t want to get showy with loud music that drowns out conversation, so hiring an acoustic set or piano player might work best. But if you want to create an extravagant night life scene at your event where gusts feel free to let loose on the dance floor, hiring a professional D.J. is the way to go. When hiring a D.J. make sure that you check their credentials, ensure that they have updated equipment and that their personality won't clash with your party. No one wants to listen to a cheesy D.J. yell over the music all night because they love the sound of their own voice!

Epic Event Six: #HASHTAG Social Media Board, #HASHTAG Guests Will Love It!

At the entrance of your venue or even on place cards at your corporate event, set up a social media #hashtag. This allows your guests to post pictures from the party and update their Twitter feeds with comments linked to your party. This is a great way to promote your business and have all the pictures from the party in one place like Instagram, just by the use of a custom #hashtag. Build a #hashtag board in an easily viewable place, so all your guests get the memo that they can update,update,update their feeds all night long! Check out these cool hashtag board ideas!
Yes, #hashtags can be overused at times, but they are a great way to promote your event and have your guests posting pictures for everyone on social media to see!

Epic Event Tip Seven: Install a Photo Booth for Fun Photo Mementos!

To provide your guests with a gift to bring home that memorializes your event, install a fun photo booth set up! Photo booths can be integrated into your party easily with DIY tricks or you can hire a professional event coordinator that offers a photo booth in their event planning package ! Guests will love having a memento to take home and the fun they have while using photo booth props that match the theme of your event!

Epic Event Tip Eight: Go Big Screen or Go Home!

Guests love to see themselves or videos that match the music on a big screen! Incorporate a big screen viewing system at your corporate event to keep guests entertained and excited throughout the evening. Many event planners will have the tools to set up a big screen with videography for your party. If you want to get really creative you can play a movie montage of the history of your company on the big screen, further promoting your business!

Epic Event Tip Nine: Have a Blast!

Party and event planning can be stressful, especially when corporate partners, coworkers and employees will be present! Just remember to relax, breathe through the planning and have a positive attitude. Everyone loves a party, so don't stress it too much! Plus if the event planning gets too overwhelming, that is what the professional event production companies are available for!

Wedding Entertainment is a huge factor to consider in the wedding planning process and should be given due consideration sooner rather than later!
