While it may not seem completely obvious at first, atmosphere is one of the most important aspects of event planning. The entertainment you provide your attendees plays a significant role in establishing the atmosphere for your occasion.
The last thing you want to do is have your event’s entertainment clash with your audience, as this will throw off the mood for the entire function. If you happen to be holding a presentation for middle-aged potential investors and entrepreneurs, it would (most likely) not be appropriate to book a local punk band to play during an intermission.
What Would You Want?
Imagine yourself as a member of your own guest list: what would be something you would enjoy seeing at the event? What would be something you wouldn’t enjoy being exposed to? Taking the time to envision how your function will be experienced from the perspective of your attendees can help prevent future issues.
Are they young? Are they old? Are they flagrantly conservative or liberal? Understanding whom you are inviting will pave the way for you to successfully booking your event entertainment.
Strive to cater your entertainment to what the majority of your guests would find appealing. It is impossible to please everyone at the same time, but it can’t hurt to try.
Communicate with Your Entertainer
If you feel as though your entertainment’s performance would not be ideal for those who plan to attend your occasion, seek to compromise with them. An experienced, professional entertainer will be able to conform to the requests of the client. If your entertainer’s performance would potentially disrupt the atmosphere of your event, but they are not flexible enough to rectify this issue, consider finding another entertainer who can.
Think Not Only of Your Guests, but Also the Setting
Think objectively about whether or not your entertainment would meld well with the location that is holding your function. For example, it may not be the best idea to book a raunchy comedian who is fit for a 40th birthday to perform at a location such as public park where those passing by may hear.
Lighting is a Powerful Tool
One of the most important factors to consider while setting a particular atmosphere for your audience is the lighting. You can’t have a high-energy dance performance in a dimly lit room where people cannot see what is happening.
Furthermore, if you are employing the service who more of an emotional appeal, such as a spoken word poet or a singer, the entire venue should not be brightly lit while the performance is occurring, as it lowers the quality of the experience and makes it less immersive for viewers.
Planning an event is hard work; you have to handle logistics, send out invitations, and, on top of all that, book entertainment. Even if entertainment is just an afterthought to you by the time you settle everything else involved, it is still important to the overall quality of your planned occasion to choose the right type.
