Whether you are celebrating your company’s latest accomplishment or hosting a catered networking event, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with it! There are plenty of ways to make events like this fun while remaining professional.
We put together some ideas to keep your corporate event fun, entertaining, and professional:
1. Have fun with the food menu
Don’t think because it is a professional event that you need to keep the food plain. Everyone enjoys great food and with so many fun options out there, you can find one that suits your event’s need. Consider these options to add fun and creativity to the menu:
DIY food bar. Food bars are a popular option for a variety of events due to their versatility and ability to accommodate people with food allergies. From tacos and pizza to s’mores or ice cream sundaes, you can easily set the food bar up yourself and provide guests with a tasty and interactive experience.
Bring in a food truck or cart. Take the headache out of catering and hire a food truck to set up shop at your event. With a wide variety of food trucks in Pittsburgh, ranging from waffle trucks and cupcake trucks to pizza trucks and BBQ trucks, you can find a food truck that meets the needs of your event.
Strolling Table. Strolling table performers dress in impressive, colorful costumes that feature a fitted flat surface or cage around their form. This flat surface or cage allows them to hold drinks or appetizers and serve them to your guests in a fun and unique way.
2. Make it interactive
Involve your guests in the action, whether it be through games, dancing or team building, there are a variety of ways to make the event interactive for your guests, such as :
Photo booth. Rent a photo booth with fun backgrounds and silly props that guests can use to make fun memories. Take it a step further and rent a green screen photo booth that allows guest to choose any background they like, letting them pose on the moon or in front of the Hollywood sign, for a unique keepsake.
Play some games. This will let guests have fun while working toward a common goal and may give coworkers who don’t normally get to interact to get to know each other. From Minute-to-Win-It games and casino games to sports games, the possibilities are endless for bringing the fun to your event.
3. Choose the right entertainment
Don’t be afraid to stray away from common corporate entertainment like a piano or harpist. Try hiring a professional DJ or a live band to create a fun atmosphere and get people out on the dance floor. Other ideas that are sure to keep your guests entertained include:
Caricaturists. These talented artists can create a fun portrait of your guests in minutes, showcasing their special features. This is a fun way to create laughs and lasting memories with your guests and provides them with a keepsake they can cherish.
Magicians. A magician is a great way to entertain children and adults alike. With their stunning talents of illusion and interactive tricks, they can keep crowds engaged and entertained for a memorable experience.
You may also consider hiring a celebrity impersonator or a comedian to spice up your corporate event. Be sure to consult with the experts at Entertainment Unlimited to find the right performer for your next corporate event to make it unforgettable!
