360DG’s Top-10 Bucket List: Virtual Entertainment Experiences
Every planner knows that a program or event isn’t worth its salt without an entertainment element. But even in the best of times, finding fresh entertainment ideas to engage guests is a challenge, so we understand how now – in the age of virtual meetings – you’ve been dealt a whole new hand of “how the heck do I do I keep them engrossed from behind a screen?”
It all comes down to finding something that truly wows, even though it’s not technically in person. And thanks to 360DG’s robust list of national connections – our offices are, after all, located in some of the top cities for entertainment – we’ve got just the star-studded, out-of-box-entertainment options to bring virtually to you…and keep guests glued to their screen, in the process.
