You Get What You Pay For!

You’ve heard this hundreds of times, but still someone offers you a “discount” on what otherwise would never be “discounted”. You go for it and as almost always is the case, you’re disappointed and often let down in the most awkward position.

Corporate entertainment is no different and I have talked to many clients that were offered, and went with, a vendor offering that appeared to be a bargain; only to be embarrassed by the lack of quality in the actual performance of the event. Or worse, they never showed up or went out of business after they had procured a deposit.

A good entertainment company will be professional from the get go; quotes concise and transparent, everything listed, menus provided, extra costs discussed, what the performance with entail, what to expect, time lines and, of course, what flexibility one would have with number of guests, dates, venues etc. Contracts would be clear, beneficial in protecting both parties in the event of bad weather, kitchen disaster, client going out of business and many unforeseen circumstances. It is a mystery after all. A live show fokes and anything can happen!

You should always check with the BBB to see who you are dealing with and get references for larger shows. Websites should look professional and easy to navigate, if they’re not, then perhaps their performances may reflect the same attention to detail.

It is tempting in tighter budget times to cut corners but from years of experience, I would suggest never cut the entertainment aspect of your function. It will leave only the chicken dinner and a bad taste in the mouth of your guests as they’re forced to sit through an endless performance of amateurs that simply don’t get it right.

That said, check us out, we’d love to fulfil your entertainment and corporate team building needs!
