Hiring a professional DJ offers a lot of benefits when planning a business event. Far more than hiring a living jukebox, a skilled DJ can take your event from mediocre to memorable, all the while making the event much easier for you to manage.
Whether you are looking for music as background atmosphere or you want high-energy interaction, a professional DJ is just the ticket for these reasons:
A good DJ makes your event run more smoothly.
Consistent to any DJ’s job description is emceeing and managing the timeline for an event. You can lean on your DJ to help you make announcements, get people to participate in an activity, and assist with speakers and keynotes. Once you have gone over your timeline expectations, you won’t have to micromanage these elements because a professional will be supporting the entertainment portion of your event and keeping things on track.
Guests will pay more attention and stay longer when they are entertained.
When you are hosting an event to get people’s attention such as an Open House, Grand Opening or perhaps a trade show event, you need to provide an activity that not only captures people’s attention, but keeps them engaged with your business. When people are engaged, they stay longer, pay closer attention to the information they are given, and develop a better bond with the company. A DJ is experienced in getting people off their feet to participate in activities, which will create greater positive energy at your event and make a great impression.
The sound equipment will be handled professionally.
Anyone who has worked on a business event has experienced technical difficulties with equipment. When you are supposed to be out staffing the check-in table, or greeting special guests, the last thing you need is to be figuring out what wires go to what and why a piece of equipment isn’t working! A professional DJ comes equipped with all the necessary sound equipment including speakers, microphones, mixers, and digital music equipment and software. Because they are accustomed to running equipment, they can also assist you with other equipment such as video presentations. Technical difficulties can derail an event almost as fast as bad refreshments, so avoid this risk with a DJ by your side.
DJ’s are an efficient use of space and budget.
The typical DJ set up is fairly compact and portable, making them perfect for any variety of settings and venues. Whether you are hosting an Open House in a parking lot or a gala in a large banquet facility, a professional DJ will adapt to the space, while filling it with attention-grabbing sound and activity. Usually less expensive than a large band, DJ’s offer more flexibility, a larger variety of music, and adapt to any setting with less requirements than a live band.
Leave them talking about what a nice event you hosted.
The right DJ can significantly enhance the atmosphere at any event. They carry an extensive music library so they are able to adapt to the mood, special requests, and accommodate particular music styles and themes. If you are hosting a special recognition, banquet or retirement event, your DJ can help you select just the right music and activities to highlight the celebration. A pro will also be able to provide mood uplighting and other effects to wow your guests, and make the event feel as special as you want it to be. An experienced DJ will make your event more memorable and leave your guests raving about it.
