A business event is no longer the same as it used to be. The main goal of your business event could be: sharing knowledge, networking, looking back and ahead or celebrate successes. These goals can be reached with creative components as part of your business event. For an attractive event, there are multiple creative possibilities for your next event. Read 13 ideas to add to your event.
Interactive food stations
How cool is it to place several interactive and/or do-it-yourself stalls for food and drinks throughout the location of your event. From a customizable bar for champagne and cocktails, a fruit stand to create your own smoothies, to a gigantic wall of donuts. There are many creative ways to offer food and drinks to your participants in a surprising way.
People have been crazy about taking photos in photo booths since 1925 and that hasn’t changed in the past 98 years. What has changed? The technology that makes these photo booths possible. Today’s photo booths give your visitors the ability to easily take photos, videos or GIFs and share the images directly via social media accounts. You can also make the setting as creative as you want.
Everyone loves free stuff, but this only applies to the things we really want. Most giveaways given out during events end up in the trash can because they are not useful. A goodie stall with cool items that participants can make their own will certainly ensure that your visitors go home with something they will keep.
A little competition in a fun atmosphere can take your business event to a new level. Consider, for example, a treasure hunt, caption contest or pub quiz with questions about your event.
Make sure you hire a comedian who specializes in corporate performances. This will most likely result in slightly more appropriate language and jokes about business-related topics and situations that your visitors will recognize.
Thanks to artists like the Dutch Hans Klok, magicians and illusionists have grown from birthday party entertainers to professional performers. A good magician can make a big impact on your event. If you have an international audience, chances are this will go down well with everyone.
Thanks to circus performances such as Cirque du Soleil that have turned circus as an art into an immersive experience, circus acts, like magic tricks, have undergone an image change. Add some of this mystique to your own event by hiring contortionists and acrobats.
Caricaturists are a guarantee of success at any event, but you can go one step further by choosing an artist who uses the latest technology. For example, hire a caricaturist who uses a tablet to create drawings and projects them onto large screens in real time during your event.
A graffiti artist
It’s quite impressive to see a large work of art. If you have the space, consider hiring a graffiti artist to create a mural during your event. In the form of 3D street art on the ground, you can also use this, for example, to make the entrance to your event more interesting.
If the visitors to your business event are largely in the same age group, then a cover band is always a good idea. Your attendees will love hearing their favorite songs from the good old days and because the performance is live, the room will be full of energy.
You can also create a casino with gaming tables, slot machines and professional dealers. This is a simple way to provide entertainment for your visitors. It is best to choose to rent these items instead of arranging everything yourself.
At a singalong there are 2 pianos on stage, both played by professionals who sing and entertain. This idea requires a lot of space, but it can be very successful if done right. The advantage of this entertainment is that you can also transform it into a stylish form of karaoke.
Artists with fire
Whether it is a fire eater, a dancer or a juggler, fire eaters can add spectacle and sensation to your event. And these performances provide a great opportunity for beautiful photos. The photos of this performance will guaranteed be shared via social media. So make sure that the #hashtag of your event is clearly displayed everywhere. Please check in advance with your location whether you can and may arrange this type of entertainment.
