Embracing Solo: Creating Inclusive Valentine’s Day Events for Singles


Valentine’s Day often comes with a lot of feelings for single people. A Valentine's Day event for singles can create a sense of belonging by providing a supportive space for celebrating self-love, friendship and shared interest. Events create shared memories, and promote inclusivity and a sense of belonging.

Activities encouraging friendship, personal growth, and positive affirmations can help build a community where individuals feel valued and connected, regardless of relationship status. With 49.1% of Americans reportedly single as recently as 2022, consider expanding your focus for a successful event from just couples February 14.

Be inclusive

Plan activities that cater to both singles who are simply looking for something to do and others who might be looking to catch a spark, ensuring there’s no pressure to couple up while leaving room for the start of a deeper connection. Feel free to use pink and red in your event marketing and on your event page, but using other bold and bright colors adds festive elements that indicate your event isn’t focused on romantic love or oriented specifically at couples.

Create events with entertainment options that cater to a diverse audience, such as live music, comedy shows, or themed movie nights that don't necessarily revolve around romantic films or subjects. Encourage social interaction by organizing group activities or games like speed friending or dating or group challenges to foster connections among attendees. Make sure there are spaces with clear guidelines to ensure the comfort of all your attendees. Emphasize the importance of consent while creating a welcoming atmosphere for people of all genders and backgrounds.

Consider offering “a first date” promotion to attendees on a pair of tickets for another of your upcoming events for people who hit it off and want to get to know each other better. Go even bigger, and hook the hopeless romantics by offering any couple that meets at your event free tickets to an event upon the presentation of a marriage certificate.

Lean into it

While the focus on Valentine’s Day might be romantic love, the idea of being coupled up doesn’t appeal to everyone. About 57% of single people are not interested in a relationship, and are content with their single status. Honor the proudly independent with events tailored to honoring themselves, friendship and even shunning Valentine’s Day.

  • Galentine’s or Platonic Love: Give people the chance to celebrate their nearest and dearest friends. Encourage attendees to bring their bestie, or a whole group of them, to celebrate each other and their friendship. Offer reservations or add-ons for groups of friends attending together.
  • Celebrate Self-Love: Highlight the idea of self-love and self-care, with an event designed for single people to pamper themselves and enjoy their own company. Give people the chance to personalize their experience.
  • Anti-Valentine’s: Create an "Anti-Valentine's Day" for people who may not be fans of the traditional romantic celebrations. Offer activities that focus on humor, independence and camaraderie and give them a discount using a coupon that can only be applied when buying a solo ticket.
  • Singles Section: Offer single people the chance to mingle amongst others in their own section with tickets that allow access to a particular part of your event or venue

Create a sense of belonging

Help people find their community by providing supportive spaces, fostering connections between people who share the same passions and experiences. Give people a chance to find their community with an event centered on interest. Activities promoting kinship can help build a supportive community where individuals feel valued and connected, regardless of relationship status. Hold a trivia night focused on a particular TV show, singer or sport, or host a dance party featuring music from only one genre.

Leverage social media integration by running contests or campaigns to alert and hype up your target audience. Integrate social media sharing options into your event pages and encourage attendees to share their excitement, using event-specific hashtags and sharing user-generated content to your own accounts.

Continue to reinforce and support the connections at your event by hosting similar and related events, using an event comparison report to gauge their potential for success. Ask ticket buyers what their interests are by adding a survey to your tickets, and then announce events that might excite them with a newsletter. Make sure all your upcoming events are easy to find by adding an event list or calendar to your website.

Tip in a Pinch

sale_Tip_in_a_Pinch_Header-1-webp.webp At HoldMyTicket, we know organizing events requires a lot of work involving many details.

We have the tools and features you need to easily set up your tickets to maximize event attendance and revenue while staying organized without hassle.

When you’re setting up your event, remember to double check your event details, such as:

  • Start/stop times: Schedule when your tickets will go on sale by setting your start/stop times when creating your tickets. If you want ticket sales for all events taking place at your venue to start and stop at the same time, you can also set your default start/stop times. If you have particular tickets that will only be available for a specific time, you can set the start and stop for each ticket in their individual settings by viewing the advanced tab and setting the start and stop times. Setting the availability for each ticket works great in combination with a promo code for an members only presale.
  • Promo codes: Ensure you create any promo codes you want to offer ticket buyers when adding your tickets. After adding tickets with promo codes to your event, manage their availability through your Event Overview window. Please note you can use multiple promo codes for an event. If you're offering various promo codes for certain periods of time leading up to your event, we recommend creating different tickets that use promo codes and setting their specific start/stop times.
  • Coupon codes: Add any [coupon codes]( for your event before your ticket sales start through your Event Overview. While a promo code makes tickets viewable for purchase only to those who have it, a coupon code applies a discount to designated tickets at the time of check out. Make sure to inform ticket buyers if any coupon codes work only for certain events and tickets.
  • Event description: Write an engaging and informative event description. Along with piquing people’s interest in your event, your event description should have all the information ticket-buyers need to prepare to attend your event, including ticket sale information. If you’re going to have pre-sales, inform people of when they will be and how they can participate, specifying any requirements and exclusions.

Organizing and Promoting Inclusive Events

colorful header Events bring people together.

Anyone should be able to attend any concert, festival, or conference comfortably and authentically as themselves. Creating welcoming and inclusive events enables everyone to enjoy a shared experience, strengthening the bonds of community.

Your event does not have to be centered on a particular theme or take place at a specific time for inclusivity to be a major consideration. Organizing inclusive events demonstrates your respect to all ticket-buyers. Incorporate inclusion in your event with these inspiring suggestions:

  • Be intentional when it comes to inclusivity at your event, developing goals to guide you during your planning process and approaching them with genuine intentions.
  • Consider what you hope to achieve by developing an inclusive event, including whether it’s to raise awareness, celebrate a particular community, or simply ensure people enjoy your event regardless of their identities and backgrounds. Once you know what you want to achieve, you can start to plan your event accordingly.

When choosing a venue for your event, make sure it is one that is welcoming to all people. Research venues to ensure they have a history of supporting and including marginalized communities. Make sure facilities are safe and accessible for everyone, including the LGBTQ+ community and individuals with disabilities.

  • Provide gender-neutral restrooms and make sure that your event is free from discrimination and harassment.
  • Check that your event venue is accessible to people with disabilities, with all aspects of the event being able to accommodate various levels of need and mobility.

Creating a truly inclusive event requires involvement from people who are a part of different communities to forge a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all attendees. Involve marginalized peoples in the planning process for your event to help ensure that your event is truly inclusive and representative of the several intersecting communities.

  • Reach out to community organizations about partnering for your event. These organizations can provide you with valuable resources and insights on how to make your event more inclusive.
  • Recruit people with different identities and backgrounds, such those who identify as LGBTQ+, disabled or BIPOC, to partake in your event planning and to join your list of performers.

Research performers, vendors, sponsors and other potential partners or participants to ensure your event will not be working with someone who has harmed or discriminated against marginalized groups. Be careful not to platform or give the spotlight to someone who has expressed views antithetical to your inclusivity goals.

  • Choose collaborators who have demonstrated continual interest in creating an inclusive event and atmosphere, and support of people from diverse backgrounds.
  • Pay attention to any protests or controversies surrounding any potential partners, listening carefully to anyone who says they’ve been harmed by discriminatory actions or words, keeping in mind the intersectionality that exists amongst many marginalized communities, and how support or harassment of one can impact another.

Be mindful of your language and imagery in every aspect of your event. Utilize inclusive language that does not discriminate or encourage harassment against minorities and marginalized people, including members of the LGBTQ+ and disabled communities throughout your marketing, event management and interactions with customers. Ensure any representation of these communities is fair, accurate and does not do harm to their members.

  • Beware of any words or phrases, images or symbols that are offensive to marginalized communities, avoiding any faux pas, tropes or stereotypes. Listen to any feedback or concerns expressed by community members. Use gender-neutral language and avoid using stereotypes or clichés. Avoid gendered language, such as "ladies and gentlemen," or "boys and girls." Instead address your ticket-buyers as guests, participants, or fans. You can also consider simply addressing people as everyone or you all.
  • Be respectful of each person’s pronouns, ensuring you always identify performers and participants as they wish. Always ask people for clarification rather than making assumptions about someone’s gender, ethnic or racial identity, while giving people the chance to decline answering. Never press attendees for personal information; if you’re including a survey as a part of your ticket, allow any questions regarding gender or sexul orientation, race, ethnicity or disability to be optional.

Creating events at which people feel at ease may require some extra thought or work for organizers, but planning and promoting inclusive events shows you respect all attendees. A safe and welcoming environment is always worth proudly celebrating.

Offering Fans Personalized Experiences


People crave personalized experiences. They want to feel like they are part of something special, and they want to be able to choose the experience that is right for them.

While you may not be able to offer each fan in a crowd of hundreds or thousands a unique experience, you can give fans the chance to customize their experience with different ticket types, VIP packages and add-ons.

Different Ticket Types

Not all attendees are created equal. Some fans might be willing to pay for different experiences includes, including:

  • VIP package
  • A table with bottle service
  • Lawn seating
  • Reserved areas within general admission spaces

By including multiple ticket types, you can cater to the needs of all of your attendees. Offering different tickets allows each fan to choose what kind of vibe and view they want at your event. Allow further customization by letting fans choose from various VIP packages and purchase other ticket add-ons.

When choosing the right ticket types to offer for your event, it's important to consider your target audience and the overall goals of your event. If you’re organizing a music festival, try offering ticket add-ons like parking, meet-and-greets with artists, and exclusive merchandise. For sporting events, you might want to offer a VIP ticket package that includes merchandise signed by players.

After you've chosen the right ticket types, it's important to market them effectively. Be sure to highlight the benefits of each ticket type and explain how they can enhance the attendee experience. Use a variety of marketing channels to promote your ticket types, including social media and email marketing with the HMT newsletter tool.

VIP Packages

VIP ticket packages are a great way to offer attendees a more exclusive and elevated experience. They can consist of various combinations of perks such as:

  • Early entry to the event
  • Access to a VIP lounge or area
  • Complimentary food and drinks
  • Meet-and-greets with speakers or performers
  • Special gifts or souvenirs

Group VIP benefits into different groups to give fans the chance to pick a ticket that includes what’s important to them, such as a great view and meeting the band, while avoiding paying for what they don’t want, like merchandise.

If you include alcoholic beverages as a perk on tickets, consider offering a sober alternative or discounted rates for fans who want to abstain from drinking.

Ticket Add-Ons

Ticket add-ons are a great way for attendees to customize their experience and add more value to their ticket. They can include things like:

  • Access to workshops or classes
  • Discounts on merchandise
  • Early access to tickets for future events
  • Exclusive content or experiences

When creating your ticket add-ons, ensure you’re offering attendees something different than what’s already available to give people incentive to make the purchase.

Here are some other tips for offering personalized experiences at your events:

  • Use technology to your advantage by engaging with attendees through social media to create a sense of community and provide information, including in real-time
  • Collect feedback from attendees through surveys, registration forms, or social media so you can create improved personalized experiences

Allowing attendees to personalize their event experience in ways that suit them empowers them to get the most out of your event.

Creating a more personalized experience for your attendees makes your events more memorable and enjoyable for your attendees, improving the overall success of your event, allowing you to attract more attendees and increase ticket sales.


7 Tips to Elevate Your Events

Whether you’re holding a festival or a gala, organizing an event requires a lot of planning and hard work. HoldMyTicket is here with tips (and tools) to make it easier.

Set the Scene

People have a lot of event options. Entice people to add your concert or display to their list of must-attend events with dazzling details on your HMT event page . Focusing on what makes your event unique, hype it up with inside info and videos.

Use behind-the-scenes clips of event and performance preparation, set lists and other teasers to show people just enough to make them want to fully experience your event for themselves. Pro tip: Share your content on different channels to maximize reach and increase engagement.

event page

Our fully capable shopping cart can also help people find the perfect show for every person in their life by showing them other upcoming events for which they can “add to cart” without missing out on their transaction in progress, and personalize their gift with our surveys tool.

Care to Share

Nothing spreads holiday cheer like something joyful to hear! Maximize your event’s promotion by sharing your event’s link on local social media groups and neighborhood websites. Include a flyer to up your chance of garnering shares and engagement, benefitting from free exposure.

Get people excited for your event by posting about it on your blog and socials, including links to your event page and featured performers or artists. Make sure your blog post is a part of your marketing, linking to it on your social media and including it in any newsletters.

Offer VIP Tickets

While only accounting for 10% of admissions, VIP tickets can account for up to 25% of revenue. Also consider offering special tickets to timely buyers with pre-sales or promo codes

If your event will include multiple showtimes throughout the holiday season, you can encourage people to attend earlier in its run with lower prices with coupon codes. You can even save time by scheduling repeating events at the same time.


Alert the Media

Don’t wait for a slow news day to get your event some attention from the local media outlets. Write an engaging press release and send it to your media contacts. Then, call up reporters to give them a little more details about the event to inspire them to do a feature

Reaching out could be especially fruitful if your event is for charity or will benefit others in the community. Make sure to link to your event page and blog post, as well as your social media, so they have contact details easily accessible and can share with their own audiences.
