What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a word used in many different industries. It may be abbreviated to entmt on a flier or in industry news publications when space is limited, but it is not generally used elsewhere.

Entertainment has evolved to fit any scale – from private entertainment suited for two, to banquets for groups, to professional sports in the form of competitions between thousands, and to global events televised for viewers around the world. It has also demonstrated the ability to cross media – the classic story of Scheherazade, told in the professional storytelling tradition, has inspired a number of orchestral works, a film by Pasolini, and an innovative video game.
