Business event entertainment is a thriving industry, and there are thousands of companies out there, each offering a unique way to impress prospective clients, or to entertain your staff and existing customers. Business events are all about building relationships, making the right impression, and building good will towards your company. Below are seven great event ideas that are sure to leave your clients with a great lasting impression.
1. Helicopter Pleasure Flights
Hiring a helicopter to whisk your guests off on 20 minute a pleasure flight costs less than you might think, prices start from just £155 per person. This idea works great in conjunction with outdoor events such as a BBQ. It's worth bearing in mind that helicopter pleasure flight companies don't fly in very bad weather, so if you opt for this idea make sure you have a backup option in place in case the great British weather decides to intervene! That said, the reward is definitely worth the risk, and there are very few things that are as memorable as soaring over the Pennines or Yorkshire Dales, enjoying vistas of pristine English countryside. Corporate pleasure flight bookings can be made at pleasureflightsltd.co.uk.
2. Clay Pigeon Shooting
Another great outdoor corporate entertainment activity that is often overlooked. Clay shooting is a fun day out that everyone can enjoy. Although many people consider this sport the domain of fabulously wealthy gentry, it's actually very affordable. There are clay pigeon shooting venues across the country, and prices start from around £41.99 per person.
3. Sports Hospitality
Certainly one of the most impressive forms of corporate entertainment, especially if you are able to find out your potential clients favourite sport and team allegiances then book accordingly. There are specialist sport hospitality companies out there who can cover everything from a day at the races to booking a VIP box at Etihad stadium.
Definitely not for the feint hearted, but kayaking can be a great team building exercise. There are a number of white water locations across the UK for more experienced Kayakers, including the River Tryweryn in Wales, Sowerby Bridge in Yorkshire, or Lee Valley white water centre in Hertfordshire. It's worth noting that rivers are graded by difficulty and inexperienced Kayakers should begin on specially selected grade 1 rivers under the supervision of a qualified instructor. Only when you possess the required skills and experience should you attempt more challenging grade 2 or grade 3 rivers.
5. Track Day Racing
A number of famous UK racing circuits hold track days which are accessible to the general public. Trackdays.co.uk are currently offering a package deal which allows you to drive the Aston Martin V8, DB9, and DBS at Castle Coombe racing circuit for just £199 per person. If a Ferarri is more your style, there is also a similar deal which allows you to drive a 360, 430, and the epic 458. Considering the very reasonable pricing, track day racing is a great choice for small businesses looking to make the right impression without breaking the bank.
6. Hot Air Ballooning

Hot air ballooning can be booked at hundreds of locations across the UK, your potential customers will enjoy stunning views from up to 50,000 feet.
