Latest Corporate Event Trends

Useful Corporate Event Trends You Must Know About and Utilize

Everything ranging from physical features like the theme of your corporate events to the use of the latest technology can increase the success rate of your event radically. These features are known as event ‘trends’ that come and go with time.

Things like networking opportunities, interesting food presentation, unique food items, and fun elements, etc. have more impact on the success of your corporate event than you think they do. In addition to these usual attractions, there are high-end trends like green initiatives and yoga breaks that impress the guests.

If you are planning a corporate event and are wondering which corporate event trends should be followed, here are a few that will help you pull off the best event possible.

Corporate Event Trends

1.     Health and Fitness

One way to show your guests that they are valued and keep them energized throughout an otherwise dull corporate event is by incorporating a ‘health and fitness’ part. Two easy ways you can do this is by accommodating a couple of exercise breaks in between the event and offering the guests healthy snacks. These will not only deliver a nice impression but will also keep the attendees rejuvenated and motivated.

2.     Gamification

Every industry is trying to incorporate gamification into its corporate events. Gamification refers to the introduction of games in events that keep the guests entertained and relaxed. Nonetheless, these games shouldn’t be completely irrelevant or have no purpose. They should rather be focused on cognitive skills/development and encourage positive things such as team building, critical thinking, etc. You can even organize a short gaming competition amid an event to make the events more vibrant by infusing a sense of competition.

3.     Mobile Event Applications

Event applications simplify things for the attendees. These applications feature event-related things like the agenda, outcomes, goals, names, and particulars of the spokespeople, note-taking, question-raising, etc. These applications are not only really impressive but play a prominent role in keeping events more organized and interactive.

4.     Green Initiatives

The world is slowly and gradually shifting to being green as people become more conscious about harming the environment that they are living in. If you forget or neglect introducing green initiatives and following things that add to environmental safety, you will be making a big mistake.

At the bare minimum, what you can do to make an impression and preserve the environment is forbidding the use of plastic products such as water bottles and polythene bags for anything during the event.  Additionally, you can utilize state-of-the-art LED bulbs that consume less energy than the fancy lights do and use mobile apps to share any documents or images instead of distributing printed templates. This information should also be highlighted and shared with the attendees to have a longer lasting impact.

5.     Desirable Event Venues

This might sound like an ordinary one, but it is as important as all the other trends on this list. There is an appropriate location/environment for everything, so the location that you choose for your corporate event or meeting should be well-suited to it. You can’t expect your event to be successful if you organize your corporate event in a playground, can you?

The best you can do to ensure the location is best-suited to your event is focusing on things like convenience and desirability, not only the price when browsing through the options.

  • Celebrity Impersonators

 

This is a type of entertainment that will instantly liven up the atmosphere of your event. It’s great for all sorts of events including birthday parties, cocktail parties, wedding anniversaries, and corporate events.

When it comes to corporate events, you can hire an impersonator to mimic the CEO or the office co-workers for the sake of sheer fun; but make sure that you have taken their approval beforehand. You wouldn’t want to offend anyone!

 

  • Professional Singers/Bands

 

This is the most typical form of entertainment which is quite easy to hire. Although it is a common type of entertainment, it doesn’t mean people don’t enjoy it. As long as the singer or the band is able to entertain the guests at the party, it is an absolutely ideal entertainment.

You can hire multiple solo singers to make the occasion lively and exciting. When different singers will be performing, your event would be far from becoming boring. Another great option is to hire a famous musical band to pique your guests’ attention at once.

 

  • Caricaturists

 

Caricaturists are a total hit at any event – from regular parties to corporate event. It is a great way to bring a huge smile to all the guests’ faces.

Having a caricaturist at your special event will give your guests a chance to take the funny sketches back to their homes as a nice souvenir.

You can also consider an artist who can incorporate technology into his art. Caricature artists can use tablets to draw and project their drawings onto large screens at the event to maximize entertainment.

 

  • Magician

 

Magicians and illusionists have gone from birthday party entertainers to professional performers. They have the ability to awe and inspire both children and adults.

So whether it is a birthday party or an award ceremony, magicians can leave all the guests spell-bound with their mind-bending tricks.

 

  • Cirque Shows

 

If you thought circus arts can only be hired for informal events, think again. Acts like Cirque du Soleil have completely revolutionized the art form by their sophisticated acts.

Hire well-experienced contortionists, acrobats, and aerial performers for your next special event and mesmerize your guests like never before!

These are the top five entertainment ideas that you can consider to make the occasion super-awesome. Venues of North Scottsdale can provide you with different types of entertainment that will make a lasting impression on everybody present at your special event.
