Planning your corporate event so everything flows smoothly saves you headaches the day of your function. Here are some corporate event planning tips that can make the logistics of your corporate entertainment easier on your entertainers and your stress level!
Selecting the right corporate entertainer can be a tough job, but as an event planner, you need to realize it is only part of the equation.
Every form of entertainment requires some production. Corporate comedians may be simple, needing only a microphone and suitable sound system. Bands, magicians and acrobats, may have more complex production requirements including staging, lighting, rigging and freight.
When scheduling, you will need to allow time for the entertainer to set their show and perform a sound check. The corporate entertainer should know your schedule and help fit this period to match your intended agenda.
It is also important that you coordinate the entertainer's arrival with your venue manager. Find out where should they park, if the entertainer should they use a special entrance, if their equipment can be carted in through the entrance or if they need to use a loading dock and freight elevator.
Make certain your entertainer knows these details in advance, along with accurate directions to the venue. Providing this type of advance information will make their arrival smoother and prevent frustrations that could affect you, your event or their performance.
