Hiring A Corporate Event DJ
Successfully planning a corporate event requires a prioritized vision. Food, beverage, and dance floors should all be considered first if a memorable party is desired. When it comes to a corporate party, the best moments happen when the ties and/or shoes come off.
An experienced corporate DJ knows how to bring out the best in a work-party environment. This includes using clean versions of party favorites and knowing how to read a crowd.
Employees celebrating company milestones or closing out the year are looking to let go of work for a couple of hours. The best corporate event DJ gives people a chance to indulge in great music for a couple of hours. Where business conversation ends, dancing and drinking can begin.
The Dance Floor
The dance floor at a corporate event will be mixed with various demographics. Age, race, gender, and tastes in various music genres will all be present at the same time. A great corporate party DJ will bring them all together for hours of celebration and morale boosting. This is best achieved through the open format DJ set.
Planning A Corporate Event – Pro DJ Tips
Entertainment companies are found far and wide. The majority of them specialize in weddings. This is due to the year round availability of customers seeking wedding DJs.
Booking a wedding DJ for a corporate party will not result in the best dance floor. This is simply because the majority of wedding DJs are actually wedding emcees. Wedding emcees have great emcee skills for family and private functions, they lack in their ability to mix and read a crowd. In short: their skill level is 80%: emcee, 20%: DJ.
When it comes to guest entertainment for your company function, book a corporate event DJ. For more information, contact us here.

STEP 2: Be Inclusive and Versatile With The Events You DJ
Corporate party DJs only get one chance to get the event right. Therefore, a DMC is going to be meticulous in their search of the best corporate event DJ.

Furthermore, if you are just starting out as a corporate DJ, you can’t be too choosy. Now is the time to take advantage of every event opportunity that you are presented. Advertise yourself for high end events including weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and corporate holiday events. Join professional vendor organizations. Ask your clients to review your business on Yelp and Google Business. All of this acclaim online will help to build your name and expand your network.
