50 Corporate Entertainment Ideas for 6 Types of Event Be inspired to create better corporate events!

We took a look at the type of corporate events our clients most commonly hire corporate entertainment for and came up with a list of entertainment ideas to suit the 6 most popular event types. From intimate office parties to huge corporate conferences, you'll find some great corporate entertainment ideas in the lists below...

To create our list of 50 entertainment ideas for corporate events, we first took a look at the huge variety of different event types that our corporate clients are booking their entertainment for. We took the most popular event types from the list and asked our Artist Liaison Team to come up with ideas.

Post-conference parties

An opportunity for organizations to let their hair down and have some fun after all the 'work' stuff is done and dusted!

Intimate event
Smaller format bands are most suited to smaller spaces such as parties at head office.
Three piece rock and pop party bands such as Teenage Kicks can deliver a party much larger than their small format might suggest.

Mid-sized event
For parties in venues with adequate space for a stage or a larger performance area, 4 - 6 piece function bands such as Hipster or Brightlights are a great choice.

Large event
For large conferences in an arena sized venue where you want an artist who can fill a large space and deliver a larger than life stage show, an artist such as Get Funked fits the bill perfectly.

Trade shows and exhibitions

Often a lead generation activity and an opportunity to reinforce an organisation's image among customers, prospects and suppliers.

Intimate event
Want to liven up your exhibition stand and give guests a reason to hang around? Consider hiring an awesome close-up magician such as Martin Reed to captivate guests and cause a buzz around your stand. 

Mid-sized event
If you're one of the larger exhibitors, you can afford more space for an artist such as Roaming Free to perform on you stand. They can also mix and mingle throughout the exhibition space promoting their show times at your stand.

Large event
For large shows and exhibitions where you really want to make a big splash with your entertainment, consider hiring multiple performers to entertain stand visitors as well as drive guests to you from all corners of the show.
An example selection might include: aerial artists, jugglers, walkabout characters, living statues and tables, lookalikes and fun food carts.
