Inspiring Conversations with Valentina Dominguez of Mama V Events

Today we’d like to introduce you to Valentina Dominguez. 

Hi Valentina, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
The passion for event planning, promotions, and hosting derived from a leadership position I held during my undergrad career. This leadership position oversaw the creation and planning of events. It consisted of working with a marketing team for promotions, delegating tasks, creating connections for guest appearances, etc… I held this position for nearly my entire undergrad career so it became second nature to me. I could create a task list and organize an event in my sleep! After I graduated, the next event held was a Halloween party in 2020. It was a more “word of mouth” event but nonetheless a success, with decorations, drinks, and a bounce house. In summer 2021, I was asked to help out for a party weekend my fraternity brothers were hosting. This is when I realized my connections and passion for event planning needed to become official. With my years of experience working in the club industry as a hostess, VIP manager, and cashier, and the support of my friends, I decided to create an event planning and promotions company entitled Mama V Events. The name derived from my brothers who would call me Mama V as I was always the caregiver and protector of the group. The first event under Mama V Events (MVE) was “Demon Time” a Halloween mansion party. That event was Mama V Events’ official takeoff. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Starting something new is not always the easiest thing to do. For me, I second-guessed myself a lot with just the idea of an event company. Anxiety and overthinking became an obstacle as it kept pausing my movements forward. I overcame that by focusing strictly on the passion I have. Then came the struggle of coming up with a business name. I wanted something catchy, appealing, interesting to the public. I wanted the name to cater to everyone else. I had to realize that if it wasn’t personal to me it wouldn’t work. The name was established, then came the obstacle of creating a team who believes in me and the idea, and who would willingly and genuinely want to be a part of it. I got that team (thank you, Taylor, Yanelis, Alex, Wencelias, Johnny, and Vince) and from then the next obstacle presented itself – creating the first and successful event. The pressure was tremendous and the stress of making sure everything was perfect was overwhelming, but with a strong team and my dedication to the idea, the Demon Time Halloween party was organized, and it succeeded. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Mama V Events?
Mama V Events is dedicated to planning, promoting, and hosting the perfect events. Whether it be at a club, home, or any other venue, Mama V Events strives to make any party idea a reality. What sets Mama V Events aside is that it’s not just a club promotion company. Mama V Events creates its own events and is fully involved in the planning, decorating, etc… of any other event, appearance, etc… Mama V Events encourages input from anyone so that we can cater to those ideas and make it come to life. 

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
On the promotion side, Mama V Events is involved every Thursday at Blue Lounge Tampa.
