Corporate parties and conferences are fun but they can also be intimidating enviroments for the novice attendee and a good event planner will consider many different ways of encouraging dialogue , making people feel comfortable and breaking the ice.
Todays blog concentrates on the many ways that booking ice breaking entertainment can help your conference be the talk of the town (and not the whisper in the village.)
Book Entertainment Which Is Inclusive And Encourages Participation
Team building style entertainment can be provided by a live karaoke band AKA Rockaoke or Bandeoke and for the right kind of event this lively entertainment is perfect at breaking down walls and encouraging participation. Don’t be put off by the rock tag. Live Music Management have supplied Swingeoke swing bands for events with an older guest list and set lists can often be tailored to the attendees.
Create A Talking Point
There are a number of entertainment ideas which create a talking point. A costumed stilt walker or fire breather can be enough to break the ice upon guests arrival. An even more impressive start to the evening would be a stilt walking band who can perform music whilst walking around the venue (or outside the venue) on stilts. Perhaps an even bigger surprise ice breaking entertainment is our Pop Up Musicians who can tailor their entrance to offer an impressive wow factor which will definitely get the conference attendees talking.
Include Your Guests
With close up magicians strolling around the tables or guests you are sure to include all delegates in conversation. By giving a focal point for guests to consider (and be amazed by) the shy guy in the corner can find an easy way to converse with the other conference attendees.
Involve The Guests
Live Music Management have launched a new concept in live music with a show we call Beat The Band. Beat The Band is in it’s most simple terms a pop quiz involving a live band. The Beat The Band concept can be tailored to the event with some rounds requiring stage participation if it is felt that this will suit your guest list.
Above are just a few of the many ice breaking entertainment ideas available from Live Music Management. Remember that creating the right ambience for the right event is an art form and there are a number of factors to be considered (even down to ensuring that the volume of music is correct and that people can hear themselves talk.)
