Why do you want to throw an event? Is it because you have to drum up new business? Are you trying attract new leads? Getting to know your own reasoning will help you plan your event. So think about everything that matters to bring your event into the limelight. One of those factors will be getting the right act, so finding fantastic talent is going to be a priority.
The keys to finding fantastic talent for your show will be in a few pieces:
- Focus on the performance
- Be willing to look everywhere
- Commit to an atmosphere
Merging key components of your event together will give you an idea of what kind of talent you want to hire. If you plan on your event being a nice formal dinner, you aren’t going to want to get a band who leans towards heavy metal. It would clash with the atmosphere that you plan on building. The atmosphere needs to stay consistent, otherwise things will begin to fall apart. Keep that in mind when you are deciding not just talent, but decorations and other things.
All talent is fantastic when in its niche, but take them away from it and you could end up dealing with disaster. If you hire a comedian to host a fancy dinner party, you have to expect some jokes. So when you get somebody who is not right for a situation, you shoot yourself in the foot.
So don’t hire great talent because they’re great, hire great talent because they fit into your event. Like I said, you don’t want an act that has the wrong kind of entertainer personality for the situation that you’ve put them in. That’s where talent gets to shine, when you’ve hired the right artist for your venue, everything turns out fantastic.
