With any event, directing the flow, informing attendees and guests, and communicating properly are all essential elements. These things don’t happen by accident, and a professional experienced Master of Ceremonies is a huge asset to the successful outcome of any awards ceremony. According to Wikipedia, the term ‘Master of Ceremonies’ originates from the Catholic Church. The Master of ceremonies is an official of the Papal Court responsible for the proper and smooth conduct of the elegant and elaborate rituals involving the Pope and the sacred liturgy.
