10 Tips for a successful engagement of conference entertainment Singapore
Part 3 of 3 on tips how to get the most out of corporate entertainment that you hire for your conferences
7. Never Have the Show after the Lucky Draw
This applies especially for Asian events where it is common to have a lucky draw as part of the event. From experience we know that people will leave after it because it is a natural end to any event. Save time and money if you cannot find another slot.
8. Be Aware of the Sequence of the Acts
If you have more than one act during your event make sure to speak with the respective performers regarding the sequence. It is not good to have a local favorite actor or comedian as an opener since he or she will hype up the audience and makes it tough for a follow on performer to regain the attention.
9. Place The Stage Show Before Any Speeches and Awards
It’s no secret that people switch off during the speeches and awards. This is especially true if food was served just prior to them.
You need to make sure that your guests are charged up, alert and listening to the speeches and awards; too much time and effort has gone into them to just to let them fall on deaf ears.
By having the entertainment before the speeches, you give people a chance relax, re-vitalize and become excited. At the end of the performance they will be amazed and feel alert, ready to hear your important messages.
10. Can the People at the Back see and hear the Stage Show?
When dealing with groups larger than fifty people, a stage or a riser should be used. Most acts can and will perform on the same level as the tables, but this stops a large number of people from seeing what is happening.
The same applies for the sound and lighting. Without either, the audience will have a difficult time understanding what is going on. Ask the performers regarding their requirement they should provide you with a technical rider
When you hire an entertainer for a stage show, it is in your best interest to make use of him, or her, as best as you can. Great entertaining acts can become dull if the above tips are not applied. As the event organizer it is within your power to take care of these variables which could make your carefully planned event begin to unravel.
Always remember that when you hire a venue you have the right to ask for things to be done the way you would like them. Don’t allow the venue to stipulate things that will make your event dull, boring, or lose cohesion. If they baulk against your request, make sure to put your foot down.
