How to Hire a Local Magician

There is a major function that you are in charge of putting on and now you are in the thick of the planning stages. You have your keynote speaker, meal arrangements, decorations, and additional contributions to the event organized and mapped out. There is one element that is missing, the event entertainment!! You have gone through your list of possibilities and you have decided to hire a magician. So now all you need to know is how to hire a local magician in the area where the event is being held.

The type of event you are planning will help determine the area of focus that you will want the performer to have experience in when it comes to relating to the audience. If you are hosting a kids party, the magician will need to bring a form of entertainment that the kids will find intriguing and are willing to participate in. The right magician with the right experience can always make this happen. There are other types of events where a corporate magician can boost up the crowd with amazing illusions that can be catered to the specific audience or event at hand. Whether it is a birthday party, special event , an awards banquet, or convention the right magician can make the event a great one. The question is how do you hire a magician? Who do you know that has used a magician at their event? Ask about their experience. It is very important to get a magician with the right personal touch for the event at hand.

Getting a personal review can help narrow a few things down for you also. There is the local yellow pages as well as locally printed event booklets and newspapers that will possibly have a few magicians listed. If you are searching for a particular area , call up local event centers and see if there is anyone they can recommend.
Another way of looking is to do a search on the internet. Magicians will have their information on their own website or they may be listed with a local entertainment organizations. There are also agencies out there that have a list of magicians in which you can book the magician via their service, website, or by contacting the company to book a particular magician. If you decide to book through an agency, the plus side of that is that they normally have more than one magician that can do the trick.

When looking to hire a local magician be sure to talk to the performer directly. This will give you the opportunity to get a feel for their personality and they can explain first hand how they would address your audience. If you find that the magician is not open, expressive, and not willing to provide you with as much information as possible, then that magician may not have the attitude or professionalism you are looking for. It is important to find the magician that is able to relate to people even during an interview.

Hopefully these simple ideas help in your quest for the perfect corporate entertainment for your special event!!

How Hiring A Corporate Magician Can Benefit Your Business

People love to be entertained. It is a fundamental rule that applies to people from various cultures throughout the world. If you are staging an event at a trade show or are holding a convention designed to promote your business or corporation, hiring a corporate magician to enthrall your attendees with a wide range of magic tricks could help to promote your business in an indirect yet highly effective way.

You can find professional magicians who will be more than willing to offer their entertainment services for a reasonable fee. Magicians can be found through listings such as the yellow pages, or even by conducting an online search. Some magicians will work independently, acquiring interested clients on their own, or the may be employed by an entertainment company. You will find that many magicians can be hired at inexpensive rates, and will deliver an exciting visual show that will undoubtedly keep trade show visitors entertained throughout the entire demonstration.

Magicians are typically skilled in a wide range of magical demonstrations. Many have secret tricks of their own that are not regularly seen, whereas others will perform tricks that are well-known yet still as entertaining as always. Classic magic tricks such as the bird-out-of-the-hat draw are still likely to please and inspire the audience.

One of the key benefits to hiring a magician for your event is the added freedom it will allow parents to browse or seek additional information about the services or products that you are offering. Trade shows are usually busy and filled with a large number of people, and many parents will find it difficult to juggle between visiting booths and looking after their young children.

If you have a magician performing magic for an audience, you can free parents to see what you are offering, as their children will likely have their attention riveted on the show that is taking place. Parents will probably be relieved to have some time to themselves, and will be happy to learn more about your company.

Another potential benefit is offered along the lines of customer attraction. If you are staging your event at a trade show, your business establishment will likely be surrounded by a number of other booths, each competing with each other to gain the highest percentage of visitors to their locations. Having a magician performing magic in or around your area can help to attract interested people to your establishment, and these may eventually convert into long-term customers. It's a simple marketing strategy that is known to work well.

Depending on the length of time that you will be showcasing your business, you can have your magician perform at regular intervals throughout the day. The time that you choose to hold the magic show should revolve around the busiest hours of the day, where large crowds will be gathering. This is the most appropriate time to stage an event of this sort.

At the end of the show, you could carry out a short speech while you still have the overall attention of the crowd. Take advantage of this moment to explain a little about the services or products that your company is offering, and you may be surprised how well this strategy works out for you.
