Employee Celebration Event Entertainment
ARAG is a family-owned owned company specializing in legal protection insurance. ARAG was founded over 80 years ago with the premise that everyone should have access to affordable legal representation.
Each year the company plans a celebration for their employees, combined with an annual corporate holiday party. The company generously foots the bill for employee hotel rooms right at the venue, so everyone is able to enjoy the party without concerns about transportation home that evening.
- Organization: ARAG
- Venue: Prairie Meadows Casino and Hotel, Altoona, Iowa
- Event: Annual Employee Celebration
- Attendees: 330
As an entertainer, I must say that I loved the fact that the event ballroom had a built-in stage. Speaking with the sound crew, I was told this venue had seen a lot of famous names over years. It’s the headliner stage for the Prairie Meadows concert series, hosting household name bands like ZZ Top and Heart.
Brainstorming Event Entertainment Ideas
Event entertainment for the ARAG event always includes a top-notch DJ, enabling the highly-energized crowd to continue dancing late into the evening. That’s “standard.”
Pondering more UNIQUE corporate event entertainment ideas, the party committee wanted something “different from the normal.” A few years ago, an ARAG employee saw my Hypnotist Show performed at the Iowa Clinic employee appreciation event with 800 attendees. She was very confident the Corporate Stage Hypnosis Show would be the perfect event entertainment idea to headline this year’s ARAG celebration.

Event Entertainment Feedback from Attendees
As promised, here is some feedback from some of our employees. It seems like everyone enjoyed the show. Thanks again for making our corporate holiday party something special. – Andrea
To be honest when I first heard there was going to be a hypnotist for the entertainment I thought, “ehhh,” and wasn’t too excited. HOWEVER once he started the show, about 5 minutes in I completely changed my mind. I thought it was fun and unique. Erick was very entertaining and it was fun to watch. My date and I both enjoyed the show.
I do not remember too much during that part of the event 😉 but everyone has been telling me it was quite fun to watch, so I would say it was a blast! I would volunteer again if given the opportunity. J
Top notch! He did a great job and certainly wowed me with the energy level that he put into the hypnotism and his ability to control the situation. I would recommend his performance to anybody seeking ideas for group event entertainment!
I thought it was awesome! Great entertainment! I laughed nearly the entire time, and I would definitely recommend the guy.
As a ‘performance VOLUNTEER’…I had a blast!
I didn’t feel like I was led to do anything I would feel bad about. J
…the hypnotist entertainment was spectacular! I appreciated the family-friendly approach, to have some hard laughs! People are STILL talking about it. I’ve seen 2 other hypnotist shows, and this one surely did not disappoint!
I have been to a few of these shows before, and was a little leery on how it might go. He kept it very professional. I thought it said a lot that he covered up the ladies legs that were wearing dresses and didn’t have them do anything “risky” or embarrassing.
I felt Erick was visually and vocally very talented. He was by far the most professional and skilled hypnotist I have seen and I have witnessed quite a few hypnotists — 6 or 7 at least.
The only drawback I can come up with is that much of the “activities performed” during the hypnosis were popular hypnosis activities I had seen prior. For example, driving a car, best dance moves, x-ray naked goggles, and the missing body part.
Regardless of having seen these activities performed before, the participants were different, and it was a hysterical performance. I laughed until I hurt!
In the end, I feel seeing any other hypnotist perform in the future will not stack up to the experience that Erick put on.
I also must comment that I greatly appreciated the gentle excusal of those who came out of the hypnosis to avoid distraction. This isn’t always discussed prior with the participants and audience nor handled as seamlessly.
