A successful convention is about more than just meeting the needs of an audience; it’s also about wowing them with the right entertainment. It’s like saying, “Yes, there is more to come in the program—and it’s better than ever and just what you wanted!”

A band might seem like the expected form of entertainment (and for some convention crowds, that’s okay-ask an entertainment pro for recommendations), but certain bands can make quite the statement. A band from the period that fits the anniversary of an association or movie, for example, can take guests back and celebrate their favorite era. For conventions with a retro theme, pair the band with period refreshments and décor for an all-encompassing and entertaining atmosphere.

Nothing takes an evening to the next level like performing art. From classic performers to a more modern group of performers, there are a number of performing art acts that can suit an audience’s tastes and put it over-the-top.
No act is more versatile than a piano player. Piano players can provide background music while convention guests network or jazz up the evening with an exciting dueling piano act. Ask an entertainment agent for suggestions; the best piano players are sure to delight.
Take the convention program to new heights; add aerialists to the convention entertainment line-up. Aerialists can stun guests with their amazing acts or add an entertaining twist to a formal gathering with networking and drinks.
Stilt walkers add interest to a crowded room or entrance way. These interesting performers can customize their act to the convention topic or program and catch the attention of the crowd.
These artists are a hit at any event, giving guests a memorable way to remember their experience. Caricature artists can be a big hit at events where guests are costumed, giving them a fun way to show off their costume.
Glow-in-the-dark entertainers are a huge hit at a convention evening program. LED entertainers can be a main stage act or circulate throughout the crowd as they network.

Themed entertainers are a key ingredient in creating an atmosphere around a convention theme. Contact an entertainment agent to select the right entertainers for the theme and, most importantly, for the convention guests.
