welcome to IQ entertainment
Your full service entertainment company
Since 2014 IQ Entertainment has been providing our entertainment services for weddings, parties and corporate events throughout Central Alberta.
We began as a single person wedding DJ operation but have expanded our services over the years to provide full event entertainment services and coordination. Whether it's a wedding for 50 or a corporate event for 500 we have the team to ensure a best in-class experience every time.
We are proud and honored to have been awarded the Chamber of Commerce's Customer Service Excellence award on two occasions (2015 and 2019) as part of our other company Western Business Solutions. If we are fortunate enough to earn your business, we will do our best to show you why we are going for number three!
Take a look and enjoy!
"Why IQ?" in Two Minutes
We are proud of our annual production of the Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. From lighting, music, hosting and even singing, this 300 person event is our signature night and lets you see the quality of work we do, right down to our production of the video itself!
2019 Wedding/Event Highlights
We are full-on working during our events so we rarely get a chance to grab any clips. Here's a handful of our favorite moments from 2019 that we were actually able to capture! And yes, that's Isiah beatboxing as a backing to a legendary "dad rap" at one of our receptions!
The Magic of Lighting
We provided uplighting for the Washboard Union concert as part of the Canadian Bull Riding Championships and in combination with the band's stage lighting, you'd never know we were all gathered in a curling rink! You only need a few seconds to see the effect!
Open Air Photo Booth
Our Open Air photo booth is a must-do for any event. We were fortunate enough to grab this clip on the fly and think it really shows how creative you can get with the open air concept!
We love weddings... but really, who doesn't?
Indoor or outdoors, we have you covered. If there is one thing we could insist every couple have for their wedding it is to have professional Audio Video services for the ceremony. We provide it all - from custom music to multiple cordless and lapel mics and remote generators for power, we will ensure your ceremony is heard and remembered for a lifetime. Our ceremony coordinator (see below) will ensure everything goes smoothly and our videographer can provide raw or produced 4K footage of the entire ceremony. All you have to do is show up and be amazing!
MC services, room lighting, wireless mics, we provide it all. Our coordinator services ensure your agenda and timeline actually stay on-time! We keep your event elegant and professional and then turn it up at the end of the night to get your guests dancing. We welcome request and of course, we are always flexible with special requests and last minute changes, particularly when they come from the bride. After all, it is her day.
WEDDING DAY COORDINATORS
Big or small, your wedding is an event. They say timing is everything, and you want experienced people who understand everything that goes into executing your dream. If you’re looking for some help we’ve got you covered.
Part of our overall service, our in-house coordinators take all the pressure off you and your people on the big day. We begin working with you about four weeks out to help confirm everything will be where it should on the day.
We help you coordinate your agenda, confirm with your vendors and our YEARS of experience will ensure the events of the day go off without a hitch. And the money you will save over a third party coordinator can go back into your pocket or better yet, the honeymoon!
Who thought a work function could be this much fun! Here's just a sample of what we can do.
KARAOKE/NAME THAT TUNE
We are one of the few (if not the only) providers of mobile karaoke in Alberta! Our deluxe full audio, video and lighting set-up is amazing for corporate events, Christmas parties or even as a wedding time-filler in between the wedding and reception.
We take it to the next level by integrating Name that Tune. This evening is all about the music - a little karaoke, a little dancing mixed in with a fun game of "Name that Tune" provides a great balance and gives both singers and non-singers of all ages a chance to participate and join in the fun!
Our hosts will ensure you will be laughing and cheering - adding impact, excitement and hype to the event!
Team-building like you've never experienced before. Forget the awkward touching and trust-falls, our diverse team-building events are done in a way that will have your team laughing, cheering and of course, bonding!
Props, music, effects and announcers - it's so awesome your team will be hounding you for your next event which we can do in way less time than four years!
Capturing the moments
What's that saying? Pictures or it didn't happen?
Year after year, we're amazed at how much fun guests continue to have with our open air digital photo booth!
