Choosing the Right MC for your Event

A Master of Ceremonies carries the power to shape the entire experience and tone of an event. The response, reaction, and feeling of an audience both during and after an event rests mostly in their hands. Choosing the right MC for your event will be a crucial decision. So, how do you get the perfect person that will work perfectly with the audience but also stay within budget?

Looking for your MC, you need to consider two critical questions: What and who.

What is the purpose of the event?

Although it may be a given, it’s important to go back to your event’s central goal. What are you  seeking to achieve with the event? Knowing whether it’s for a charity event, an awards night, a corporate gathering, an outreach program, or any other will help you see the bigger picture. This will let you see what the tone, message, and format should be and how an MC will fit into these factors. Are you looking for someone like a comedian to entertain the crowd? Or is it more just to keep the event on time and track?

Who is the event for?

It’s important that you have a good understanding of who your audience will be. For instance, will your guests be from the same group, what’s their age bracket or income status? What are they expecting from your event?

Once you have a good idea about the two factors above, it’s time to make a shortlist of the potential MCs that you think will be an excellent fit for your event.
