I often get asked how to successfully run an event for the first time.

I hosted my first event when I was 18, and since then, I’ve hosted loads more. I love them, and even though I was never professionally trained, I’ve learned quite a few tricks of the trade over the years.

Hosting successful events may seem overwhelming at first, and it’ll be nerve-wracking for sure, but with the right approach, you’ll do just fine.

In this video, I want to guide you through some of the most critical steps and considerations for your first event, so you can ensure things go smoothly.

    Hey i am going to host soon. I am mostly doing a comparing thing being on stage and saying stuff. Its my first time doing this. I want some advise on how to not have any kind of nervousness and keep my self calm and confident.

    If your hosting/organizing your first event would you say 30-50 max is a good cap for how many people should come to the event?

    I’m 13 and I’m interested in event planning and I have a lot of opportunities in relation to it but I don’t know where to start I’ve been told to research which I’m doing but I don’t know the next steps to take, any advice ? I’m thinking of around 50 people for my first event or maybe less but I have some connections with Venues and I’ll be earning the money from tickets and the venue earns the money from the bar

    I like the way you present fact

  12. Gem Games on June 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    So I am thinking if hosting a free event to the public i know it sounds dumb but I like seeing everyone happy and having a good time it makes me happy. Now I was thinking for this coming easter. My worries is if i promote it and people see it and then all of a sudden a bunch of people show up like how do I calculate for that how to know how many are going to come.
