Is it my imagination, or, from a corporate entertainer viewpoint, are events becoming more happening & exciting this year?
As a corporate event entertainer for many years, I noticed, that for most company functions with a theme, usually it was only the committee that took the theme seriously and dressed up. I always knew who the organising committee were, because out of all the tables, they would be the only enthusiastic ones, all dressed up and ready to party.
Guests Love To Play Dress-Up For Corporate Entertainment Ideas
But, strangely enough, this year is very different. Most companies, not matter how big, or how small, the guests seem to go all out to take the theme seriously. I think that costume rental companies must be doing a roaring trade.
Just look at some of the pictures from this corporate event we did for Roxul. It was a small company dinner and dance, and I would say ninety five percent of the audience were dressed in costumes. And not just any old costume either. There were Mexicans, Chinese Gangsters, and not one, but two Egyptian Kings – Tutankamen to be precise!
Audiences Have More Fun – Now That’s Corporate Party Entertainment
I absolutely love it when, not just the event committee, but all the guests throw themselves into the spirit of the night. Why? Because I notice such a difference in the energy, the excitement & the enthusiasm of the crowd. They love to get involved in the success of the night, & they really are determined to have fun and play. Which makes it a much easier night for the organising committee, myself as the Singapore corporate event entertainer and everyone else involved. When the audience are already ‘Up and Running’ before they have even entered the ballroom, you know it’s not just going to be a good night, it’s going to be a great night!
Why Is This Shift Happening?
As I mentioned above, as a corporate event entertainer, is it my imagination, or is there a shift taking place in society? I think it really is a shift taking place & it is being reflected in the dinner and dance event market probably not just in Singapore, but all around the world. I personally think that social media like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram actually have a lot to do with this change in the trend. What was normal for audiences before, which was to just ‘come as they please’ and not make too much effort, is not very exciting in this day and age. With social media now at our finger tips, people want to share their lives, and they don’t want it to be ‘same old, same old’, they want it to look interesting. They want to show the world they’re having fun. I absolutely love it!
We can upload photo’s immediately, in real time of all our activities. When it comes to the ‘corporate event party time’ of the year, we want to go all out & ‘dress to the nines’ because we’re now on display for the whole world to see.
As a corporate entertainer, I also see camera phone’s coming out at every event. Audiences want to capture every moment, either as a memory, or to share with their friends and family, or to blackmail someone – Lol (I’m only joking folks,). Either way, there’s no turning back because it’s a new world, a new age, a new era, where everyone wants to be more social, more interactive, more interesting.
This is why I don’t think I’m imagining this, because, over the years, I’ve seen the same results, but only recently, in the last few years, and especially this one, the mood, the energy and the efforts of the guests in the audience have changed dramatically.
