Hi I’m a newbie here please try to visit our Events place quezon city! It could be your perfect venue for your perfect event.

Hi All. I’m a newbie and will mostly come across as a total dummy here, I am sure - so apologies in advance. I guess I am permitted to say that I run “Beach Boys Britain Events” and that does not mean the superficial teenybop idolization (as if!), but rather the music side of things - workshops, harmony dissecting…and of course, Charity Events!
What brought me to this site, I will be honest here, is the frustration of trying to find a very “cost effective” (read “cheap” - or preferably “free” venue for our next gig, which is to be for Worldwide Cancer. So… may I use that as a starting point to asked my learned colleagues here, for pointers in the right direction, advice and general “brain picking”, please? We’re planning something special for the year 2020 - with all good reasons…

I’m Simon. MD of Shortarm Ltd. We started in the self-drive car tour business, expanded into small events/ festivals and now exploring what might come next!
Our early days were supported by Wordpress microsites with PayPal buttons. The marketing effort was mainly PR and handing out flyers!
Nowadays the microsites are on Wix with Eventbrite handling the tickets - all backed by Hubspot CRM powering our email marketing and social advertising.
Keen to stay on top of the latest trends/ issues, hear from other organisers and to help/ share where I can.

Hi Belinda. Thank you for replying!

I’m currently trying to gain some more experience in the operational side of event management.
However, it’s just the beginning of an exciting new path to having my own event management company that I have so many ideas for, yet don’t know where to start?
For example, I’ve started on website structure, got a name, jotted some notes for the business plan, and then?
How do I actually start by taking clients or literally launching the company?

Thanks again

Hi everyone!

I’m Luca, events lead at TEOOH. We are a Virtual Events Platform, where communities can come together to collaborate, network and share knowledge inside our digital venues. You can host events ranging from panel discussions to networking gatherings or group meetings - which your community can access globally from any desktop device.

We’re just about ready to start disrupting the events industry, and we’re looking to connect and share ideas with any event enthusiast out there!

What are your thoughts about virtual events in 3D environments? Have any of you tried one before? If so, what was your experience like?

If you’d like to chat, ping me here or at I’m also hosting a virtual event on Thursday 4th July. You would all join as avatars and mingle with other event profs:)

Hi there, I am new to eventbrite - and regrettably I had a negative experience. I want to check if this has happened to others too:

Sending out a WARNING to new eventbrite users: Be very carefully about which package you choose when you start using eventbrite.

In good faith I set up a collection for a friend’s wedding present and totally thought I had chosen the cheapest package as it was a low key affair. I wanted to use eventbrite because people can pay in different ways, the funds are secure, anyone donating would receive a nice confirmation etc. However, once the first tickets sold I realised that the fees were substantially higher then expected. I inquired with Eventbrite but it took them a good week to reply. By then it was too late to make any changes. I was told that I was on a middle sized package and not the cheapest option. I am still not aware where in the start I had the options to choose which package. I was under the impression I had chosen the most basic package. In effect from an event which raised £1820.-- Eventbrite charges came to £153.76 which translate to 8.45 %. I am extremely embarrassed to tell the donators plus the receiving newly married couple about the high fee - which could have been avoided if the set -up process was clearer. I personally find that I was misled by the information available and I am extremely disappointed. So, please - be extra careful when using eventbrite and be clear what the charges actually are.
My question is - have you had similar experiences and how did you work out the fee structure in real terms before you set an event live?

Thanks, Doris
