Leicester Business Festival

Making our business, your business.

Looking for a way to make your event stand out?  You’ve come to the right place.

How about a way to encourage better networking? Appeal to a wider audience and encourage people to get involved with your business or cause?

Whatever it is, playing music at your Leicester Business Festival event could help to create a more welcoming atmosphere, make people feel more engaged and help to improve the experience overall.


Benefits of playing music at your event

Improve the atmosphere

We all know of awkward silences and that they are best avoided. Music can help to set the tone, create a welcoming atmosphere and make people feel more relaxed & at ease.

Help you to stand out

In business, it’s important to be recognised – and music can help with this. Using it at your event could help to make you stand out, create a more uplifting environment and encourage people to attend. Using additional entertainment could entice people to stay longer, get involved and possibly become more interested in your business as a result.

Improve your messaging

Music can be used for more than just background sounds, making it a useful tool to improve your messaging. You could consider using music in presentations, displays and anything else that your event might involve to help to enhance parts of your event and make it a more interactive and engaging experience.

So, why not consider playing music at your event?

As official music sponsor of the Leicester Business Festival, PPL PRS are here to help businesses make the most out of their event and enjoy the benefits that playing music can bring.

We can provide support every step of the way to help you set up your licence and understand how to use music to make the most out of your event.
