5 reasons why you should book a magician for your corporate event

Finally, there’s light at the end of the tunnel! With the possibility of vaccinations being available to everyone in the UK by Easter, we can finally start planning ahead and catch up with all the events that had to be postponed in 2020. This includes corporate events as well as conferences, conventions, exhibitions and award ceremonies. If you are in charge of planning the entertainment, there are a number of reasons why you should book a magician for your corporate event.

Magic is a great ice-breaker

Corporate events can be quite intense. There’s a lot of business to get through and networking to be done. But these events are also meant to bring people together to form good personal relationships as well as help cement prosperous business connections. By hiring a corporate magician to help everyone wind down after a hard day’s work before the evening activities, the easier it will be for your delegates to socialise. The best times for this to happen is at the drinks reception before the formal dinner, or at the tables between courses, because it will always spark conversations.

Increase brand awareness

A great way to get your brand out there is to ask your corporate magician to use your logo or products in their act! What better way to emphasise the fact that you’ve organised the event than having something that identifies your brand popping up as part of the magic. Every time they see your brand, your delegates and guests will associate you with the great time they had at your event – what could be better PR than that!

It’ll teach them a lesson

Instead of forcing your employees to yomp for miles in the rain, build rafts, or learn how to survive in the forest, try team building that can be done in the warm. A team building magic exercise can have just as good an effect at improving communication, problem solving, and focus. With the additional bonus that no-one has to get cold or wet in the process.

There’s no language barrier

If you’re entertaining visitors from overseas, it can be more difficult to organise entertainment at your corporate event because of potential language and cultural barriers. You want everyone to have a laugh, but a local stand up comedian may not be relatable to everyone. Singing and dancing will cross those barriers, but they’re unlikely to be funny. Magic is cross cultural because of the physicality of the trick. A magician’s patter is obviously part of the act, but a good magician will adapt for their audience, making it one of the most inclusive entertainments there is.

Everyone deserves a treat

We’ve all been through a lot this year, and having got through it, it’s worth celebrating by having some fun. Treat your staff to a night out to say thank you for their loyalty and hard work over the pandemic.

A corporate magician can lift your event whether it’s by performing magic to groups at receptions or doing an after dinner cabaret act. Magic helps to boost energy levels, gives everyone a sense of wonder and, above all, gets people laughing – making your corporate event even more successful.
