Camille Andrea’s 18th Birthday

Laiya, we meet again! Well not for a wedding but this time for a formal debut party. Inspired by the film Phantom of the Opera, everyone marveled at the black, red and white set up by the staff of Estrellas De Mendoza Playa Hotel. It’s as if thespians would come out and perform any moment.

It was only me who hosted the event. Thanks to Ate Michelle and Ate Jaime who assisted and reminded me of the program changes and adjustments. Yes, there were few program changes but we all manage to perform our tasks accordingly.

About the debutant, Camille is such a wonderful young woman. I’d like to honor her parents for raising and molding a very humble, generous and kind-hearted lady like Camille. In her speech she said, “My ultimate goal in life is to be a great doctor that would not work for prestige and recognition but work to help others with genuine intentions.” Camille is a BS Biology student of University of the Philippines.

Steps in Organizing a Bridal Show

Organizing a bridal show is good way to connect with more reputable professionals in your area as well as to introduce your business to a wider variety of potential customers.For those who would like to organize bridal fair and show, here are some helpful steps for you:

  • Set a date, time and place for the event. You may do this early to make sure that there will be no conflict with venue and other concerns. Also, it is better to determine what events you will be holding on the bridal show. Will there be fashion shows? Raffle? Exhibits, etc.
  • Determine admission price and whether you will be giving door prizes, free admission or any other freebies to brides and grooms who register to come to the show. Also, determine vendor booth prices and what vendors would receive with their booth purchases like advertisement on your website, bridal leads lists, etc.
  • Advertise your show on popular bridal sites such as kasal.com. Also, contact bridal magazines, newsletters and websites in your area to see if they’ll advertise your event in their publication or on their website in exchange for a booth at your show or some other type of collateral.
  • Start calling local wedding professionals and tell them about your show. Give them all the details about WHO, WHERE, WHAT, WHEN, WHY, etc. Offer to send them information about your show via email and thank them for their time.
  • Search for sponsors to support your event. There are so many businesses that you could tie up with like Photo/video and catering services.
  • Continue to search for vendors and promote the show until the day before. Make sure that your staffs are in place and you have everything organized and all your vendors are happy, as well as your attendees.
  • And lastly, enjoy and have fun!

Batangas Bloggers Grand Eyeball at SM City Lipa

Batangas Bloggers Grand EyeBallHosting an event alone could be quite challenging. Of course, there would be no one to talk to except for the audience. Adlibs would also be hard for there would be no one who could share and talk something about an idea. There will also be no time for pausing and thinking, because this ONE host is the only one who would fill the dead air.

This is what I have experienced during the Batangas Bloggers Grand EyeBall at SM City Lipa. All alone, I did the entire introduction, raffle, and all the “off the cuffs”. It was a great experience though. I was able to fish out all my hosting and entertaining skills during this event.

Internet Marketing for SMEs and Micro Businesses

Event Hosts BatangasInternet Marketing for SMEs and Micro Businesses is a seminar organized and hosted by us, Gerlie and Dyan. This seminar is the first event of Likha Internet, an internet solutions provider based here in Batangas. The said event was held at Teachers’ Conference Center, Batangas City, Sept. 11.

For the participants, we invited and coordinated with the different schools and universities in the province that offer business and marketing programs. Two hundred fifty (250) participants attended the seminar, as expected.

The country’s top bloggers and internet marketers, Jr Cantos, Marhgil Macuha and Abe Olandres, the father of Philippine blogging, served as the resource speakers. They gave superlative discussions on Basics of Internet marketing, Search Engine optimization and social networking respectively.

Since we have several sponsors like Hersheys, Smart, Guitartutee and WOWBatangas, we were able to give away prizes and giftpacks among the participants.

Despite the hassles and stressful loads of organizing major events like this, your girly emcees and organizers were able to manage the entirety of the event succesfully.
