Choosing the right background or speaker introduction music for your event can help to set the proper mood for your attendees. Do you want to motivate? To settle? To relax? All of these can be helped, or hindered, by the appropriate music choices.

In addition to setting the proper mood for your event, with the right playlist and timing adding music can kill those awkward silences and help your event transition smoothly throughout the day.
