You can invite TV personalities, singers, sports stars, actors, artists, famous industry personalities and even popular pets for a fun cameo during your event.

It would excite attendees to the supreme! To move it up a notch, if you have an in-person event and your marketing team can land a celebrity for the event, you can organize a meet and greet for attendees.
