Innovative and Interactive Ideas for Corporate Events
When putting on a corporate event, you want to create a memorable, innovative and interactive event experience for your attendees. Catering to a wide audience, whose tastes vary, and keeping it within the spectrum of professionally acceptable, while making it fun can be a tall order to fill. If you are looking for ways to make your next event truly innovative, check out these ideas.
Go All In With an Immersive Experience
With more and more people opting for experience over material goods, you can create a truly remarkable event by adding an immersive experience to the day. Escape rooms are especially on-trend these days and are natural team-builders but in a fun and exciting way. If you’re not sure if your audience will thrill with the idea of an escape room, consider adding an event-themed cooking or mixology class.
Include an “Awww” Factor
There are countless studies that show being around animals — especially puppies and kittens — can reduce stress and increase oxytocin (the “feel-good” hormone) in the brain. Create a puppy playpen area for your attendees to get some cuddly downtime. You could even partner with Humane Canada or the Ontario SPCA so event attendees have the option to adopt a pet.
Do Not Forget the Tech
With event technology becoming more and more accessible, you will want to make sure to include the latest in event technology.
- Augmented Reality (AR): Use AR to create a scavenger hunt to get your attendees moving and competing.
- Holograms: This technology event entertainment once was only found at sci-fi and fantasy events. Today, with the latest advances in holographic technology, you can find it being used by businesses of all sizes at their corporate events.
- Event Apps: Branded event apps are a must-have for any event. Create games, interact with live bands, send announcements, and increase audience engagement with an event app.
Do Not Forget the Live Entertainment
Nothing says fun like a live musical experience. If you really want to wow the attendees at your next event, consider hiring a live band to really up the innovation factor. When you want to make sure that there is something for every attendee then look no further than Fusion Events and our live bands, like Toronto’s own uRequest Live.
uRequest Live is an internationally renowned band that offers an all-request live music experience that merges technology and live musicians allowing attendees to curate what they play by making requests from touchscreen jukeboxes and/or their smartphones. This also works incredibly well for virtual events where the band streams their performance and the audience can make requests in real time from anywhere in the world.
