Ep 113 What Vivid Sydney and Pokemon Go can teach us (or not) about immersive events, with Nathan Cassar Part 2
byAdelaine Ng

Sometimes we can stick to safe formulas while the rest of the world forges ahead with innovative ways for our events. Event producer Nathan Cassar believes this is what's happened to Sydney's Vivid Festival and other events that have not yielded the desired results for attendance, scoring wins for creativity or building community. But all is not lost, with plenty of inspiration around to correct our course, including lessons we can learn from Pokemon Go.

Based in Sydney, Australia, Nathan's rich experience has included being a Cruise Director for Princess Cruises, emceeing wedding receptions and leading major awards evening galas. His own awards have included Best Wedding MC by the Wedding Industry Awards (Western Sydney) 2023 & 2022 and Most Entertaining MC (NSW) – Lux-Life Global Excellence Awards 2022.

Quotes from this episode:

”(I would love to see) the ability to be more bold rather than this wide, wide funnel to try to bring as many people in as possible to take away as much money as you can (through things like) a $22 chips on a stick.”

”Ask us what we're really capable of because we're already masters of being able to manipulate language and people.”

How to become life of the party with master of ceremony king, Nathan Cassar
byMichael Stein: Entrepreneur, actor, filmmaker, comedian & self help expert

Based in Sydney, Australia and with over a decade of experience in the industry, my journey as a professional MC began in April 2021. Since then, I have established myself as a leading figure in the Australian event scene, having hosted over 100 events and counting. I have had the opportunity to work on a wide range of events, from weddings and festivals, to gala evenings and award nights, to charity events and trivia nights.

My passion for entertaining and creating unforgettable celebrations began early on as a high school competitive public speaker. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of hosting thousands of events and leaving audiences with lasting memories. I love the energy of live events and the opportunity to connect with audiences. Being able to help create unforgettable celebrations is truly a privilege and my ultimate goal.

My career has taken me across the world, notably Europe, North America, and the South Pacific as a former Entertainment Host with Princess Cruises. Now I bring my diverse experience and unique blend of professional experience, humour, and dynamism to every event I emcee here in Australia all year around. 

One of my greatest strengths is my ability to connect with audiences and create a lively atmosphere. My dynamic stage presence, charming smile, and professional attitude have earned me a reputation for being able to elevate any event to the next level.

Major organisations that I have performed for include the REA Group, the Marlow Hotel Group, University of Wollongong, Nectr Energy, MG Motor Australia, Standards Australia, and local city councils including Campbelltown and the Northern Beaches. I’m also a preferred vendor for numerous wedding venues across NSW, including Burnham Grove Estate, The William Inglis Hotel, and Glenworth Valley.
