In Singapore, many corporates host Dinner and Dance events for their employees. These are fun, relaxed events meant for employees to interact with each other, and have a good time away from their workplace. Most corporates hire specialized professional event planners to host Dinner and Dance events, though some prefer planning and organizing in-house, to give a personal touch to the activities. In the pre-event planning stage, a budget is pre-decided for the event, and theme, scale and activities for the event are planned around the budget. If you are part of Dinner and Dance planning committee of an organization, or an event planner, you need to consider the following before deciding on the theme and activities:
1. Audience Demographics (gender, age-group, audience interests, willing to dress up for theme parties? language preferences, total number of attendees)
2. Event type (Formal/casual, outdoor/indoor, venue conditions and constraints, ballroom venue or casual pool party?)
3. Emcee (Bi-lingual? Able to connect with audience? Previous experience? Demo available?)
Once you have narrowed down on the above factors, choosing a theme (masquerade/retro night/back-to-school/Harry Potter/Star Wars/Awards night) and planning the event logistics and activities (live shows, DJ night, Dinner and Drinks, etc) become easier.
How to make your Dinner and Dance Party a super-hit among your employees? How to ensure that employees enjoy themselves and do not feel the need to leave the party early? We present 5 ideas for Dinner and Dance events that will wow your employees/guests:
1. Magic Mirror/Photo Booth
2. Interactive Food and Drinks Counters
4. Live Shows and Roving Performances
5. Custom Temporary Tattoos
Let’s check these ideas out!
This is the age of Selfies and Social Media. Engage your employees with a smart magical mirror that snaps selfies with branded prints and social media. The Selfie Mirror Booth offers a sleek design and a user-friendly interface, communicating with guests through a touch screen of colorful animations and entertaining voice guidance. The pictures generated are high-resolution and pure fun. Employees are sure to share these pics all over Social Media
You can set up multiple interactive food and drinks stations around your venue, with different cuisines. Hiring peppy bartenders who can engage your audience while they mix that cocktail is a great idea.
Liven up your event with fun contests such as a Treasure Hunt, a Trivia quiz or a Business Quiz or even a Who-wants-to-be-a-millionaire kinda quiz.
You can wow your guests with jaw-dropping, eye-popping and awe-inspiring live performances. These can include aerial shows (talented acrobatic performers performing high above), high-energetic cultural performances (for example-Bollywood/Brazilian), cyr-wheel specialist, fire-performers, jugglers etc.
You could include roving performances which involve performers moving about the venue and interacting with the party guests, instead of being restricted to the stage.
Set up a Temporary Tattoo Booth and hand out quirky custom temporary tattoos to your attendees. These are colorful, fun, easy to sport and great conversation starters. You can design temporary tattoos in your organization’s logo or any kind of fun messages to suit your dinner and dance theme.
