Organizing Corporate Entertainment has got to be one of the hardest fields in the world. You not only have the pressures that come with organizing any other large event, but you have the unenviable task of having to engage and entertain what can be a very diverse group of people.
You are expected to provide acts that are fresh, in line with the latest entertainment trends and won’t have people dozing or looking for the exits.
When you add to this to the fact, that every corporation has its own internal culture, you have a field where you must be part psychologist, part fashion guru, part Broadway producer, part baby sitter and part account manager.
It is truly a difficult field to master.
Drawing from Other Media
Of course, one of the standard ways to stay on top of the “latest and greatest” entertainment trends is to watch social media and see what is hot. Prime examples of acts that have found great success, in corporate entertainment, is the plethora of sand painting and electric light dance troupes currently making the rounds.
To gauge how popular they have become just check the YouTube trends and see how often these types of videos are being searched for. Find a winner there and you will have a winner, for the hip crowd, at your next event.
Something else you may want to pay attention to though, is what types of acts are always in demand, because of their universal appeal.
