Interactive Holiday Entertainment VS. DJ and Dinner: What's Best?

Posted by Jake Mandel on Oct, 11, 2023

When the holiday season approaches, every company grapples with the same question: “how can we make our corporate celebration memorable?”

For years, the traditional DJ and dinner formula has dominated the corporate holiday scene. While there's comfort in familiarity, sticking to the norm might not always be the best choice, especially when there are more fun, engaging and exciting options available.

That’s where interactive holiday entertainment events come into the picture. Interactive holiday events are a game-changing experience that have companies everywhere rethinking their end-of-year festivities. 

Why Host an Interactive Holiday Entertainment Instead of a Traditional DJ and Dinner

#1 - Boost Morale and Engagement

One of the main objectives of hosting corporate holiday entertainment is to boost morale and foster engagement among team members. Interactive events challenge, entertain, and bond employees in ways a sit-down dinner cannot. It's about creating shared experiences, not just shared meals.

#2 - Unleash Your Team’s Creativity 

By engaging in activities outside their regular job functions, employees can showcase hidden talents and skills. It's an opportunity for everyone to see a different side of their colleagues, fostering appreciation and breaking down hierarchies.

#3 - Interactive = Inclusion 

With DJs and dinners, participation isn’t guaranteed. Some might shy away from the dance floor or feel left out. However, interactive entertainment offers various activities - ensuring that there's something for everyone.

#4 - Create Lasting Memories

While most might forget what they had for dinner at last year's event, they're less likely to forget the time they teamed up with colleagues to win a gingerbread house making contest or the laughter shared during a holiday cooking competition. 

#5 - Better Networking Opportunities For Your Team

Interactive games and activities break the ice naturally. Instead of the usual small talk, employees from different departments and levels can connect meaningfully, leading to increased collaboration even after the party is over.
