Event Entertainment: Intensifying the Guest Experience / Solution Entertainment

Event entertainment doesn’t have to be complicated to impress guests and enrich their experience. It’s about thinking outside the square and keeping your audience’s needs and wants top of mind. 

Here are three types of entertainment to consider, from the tried and true showstopper to subtler but effective value-based entertainment.

1. Putting on a big show

Show-stopping entertainment is guaranteed to pack a punch and impress your guests. It can be any kind of stage act like a band, a circus or even a fireworks display. This type of entertainment can get expensive, but guests love it – imagine the oohs and ahhhs as a circus performer swoops over the stage on a trapeze or the night sky explodes with colour.

2. Getting social with event entertainment

Social entertainment is where guests take something away from the event which they perceive improves their social standing. It can be as simple as a new connection, a free gift from an activation that lets them post a catchy photo, or a new venue that they can tell their friends about. Capturing all three is a recipe for success – and doesn’t break the budget!

3. Offer value-based entertainment

Value-based entertainment is basically anything that saves people time and makes their lives better. Knowledge from an expert, a free roadmap – anything that helps them get to where they want faster. If you think that this doesn’t count as entertainment, think again. Show people the way out of their pain points and watch how quickly they crack open the champagne!

To really engage your guests, start by asking what they want, how you can help level up their lives and what roadblocks you can help them remove. And always make the entertainment about them.

At Solution Entertainment, we use fresh, customised event solutions to fit your brand, budget and objectives. Contact our team about your next event today.
