"We are proud of those who support Live Entertainment"
Programs usually feature singers, music bands, stand up comedians, entertainers, educationists, public speakers, street performers, pub bands, buskers, and Trivia Game Shows. These live entertainment events are also packed with activities for people from fun games to music trivia, rides, art stalls to food stalls. Another main attraction of these events is its vibrant themes that attract people towards them. Because of their low cost, people belonging to all strata of society come and enjoy at these live entertainment events.
Presence of huge crowds of people under one roof not only helps the sponsors of the event, but also the community as a whole, by bringing them together.
For instance, a concert or an orchestral recital brings a wide range of audience together, united with their mutual appreciation for the recital or music. As they sing along and sway to the music. Whether it’s music, art, theatre or game shows, they all have the ability and power to bring people of all races, colors and regions together in their hearts, stimulate their senses by transcending the boundaries of their hearts and minds.
A recent example is of the World Orchestra for Peace in Abu Dhabi. Every year, the event brings together talent from 30 countries from the world of orchestra. They are selected regardless of their culture, region, religion and color, the only thing in common is their passion, talent and skill. This event connects people from around the world having a mutual love and appreciation for orchestra. Thus, live entertainment strengthens the community through its promotion and encourage of music and culture.
Countries around the world promote live entertainment events as they help people come together and have fun by participating in game shows, performances, competitions and much more.

Every year, more than eleven cultures from eleven different countries participate in this festival, including First Nations, India, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico, Ukraine, Thailand, Philippines, Serbia and United Kingdom. The event seeks to build a mutual understanding among people and their neighbors.
