Corporate Event Party with a DJ

DJ Cutt Entertainment recently had the honor of organizing a party for Farmers Insurance at Urban Studio in Portland’s historic Pearl District. This was a great evening and it was our pleasure to assist Farmers in making sure their corporate event came off without a hitch. In order to help other corporate event planners better organize their own events, let’s take a look at what Farmers Insurance did right and see what best practices can be learned from their example.

Picking a Corporate Event AV vendor

The first thing that Farmers Insurance did was decide to work with an AV services provider to help them plan the event. You might think that all a corporate DJ does is pick out music for your party, but in reality, they can and do assist with many aspects of a business gathering. Our first task in getting ready for the Farmers event was to sit down with their event planning team and assess what their needs were for the evening. First of all, they had an awards ceremony planned, so not only did they require audio mics for the presentation, but they needed stage lighting, a projector and screen, and a DJ for the dance party that was going to close out the night. Each of those tasks could have been completed by a different services provider, but by contacting a Corporate Event DJ, Farmers was able to save both time and money. We were able to supply them with all the AV equipment they required, help them plan their awards ceremony, and provide any troubleshooting that was needed the day of the event.

How to Create the Right Atmosphere for your Corporate Event

One thing that was very important to Farmers Insurance was creating the right atmosphere. This awards ceremony was intended to be a celebration of a successful year and a way of rewarding all of their employees. That meant they wanted a festive yet tasteful ambience. We were able to provide that with a number of appropriate sound and lighting choices. To tie the room together, we installed a back wall lit with monograms, a custom gobo with the Farmers Logo on the floor, and uplighting throughout the room, all to help set the right mood. The big focus of the night of course was the awards ceremony. They wanted it to be like the Academy Awards, so we put together a slide show presentation along with music to match. We provided microphones and speakers for the MC, as well as for the comedian they hired. We even had a camera crew on hand to record the event for prosperity.

Photo Booth
Why Your Next Event Needs A Photo Booth

You invest significant amounts of time and money in creating a wonderful event, but then it’s over. Afterwards, it might feel like much of that effort was wasted, unless you do a great job of documenting all the fun. That’s where a professional photo booth comes in. Photo booths have become a very common site at weddings of all types and sizes, but plenty of other events can benefit from having one as well. From corporate parties and trade shows to school dances and birthday parties, photo booths create instant memories that will be cherished forever, while ensuring your guests or potential customers will associate you with a successful event. Best of all, photo booths are typically much cheaper than hiring a professional event photographer, while making it easy for people to go home with plenty of pictures. Let’s take a look at what a photo booth is and why your event can benefit from having one.
