Successful events are anything but boring. Here are a few tried-and-true techniques that will help you create powerful, memorable events that engage and entertain.
HIRE A GOOD EMCEE
Emcees aren’t just for awards shows—they’re for any event where you want to keep the energy level high, deliver key messages with show-biz flair and make one-on-one connections with your guests.
Nothing says “boring” like chirping crickets. Music will give your event energy and emotion.
INVITE SPECIAL GUESTS
You’d be amazed at how many people will line up to have their picture taken with a guy in a sponge suit. One caveat: make sure the guest is relevant to your message.
A little bit of planned “spontaneity” can really keep an event hopping. Engage guests with impromptu dance contests, sing-alongs or games related to your brand and message. (Good thing you have an emcee and music.)
Everybody loves a freebie—but make it count by choosing premiums that are on-brand, have intrinsic value and will leave a lasting impression.
Provide opportunities for your guests to share the experience with their friends via social media, thus creating a pass-along effect for your product or service.
