Organising chess events is one of the services I offer. These include tournaments, simultaneous exhibition matches, and blindfold exhibition matches.

Tournaments can vary depending on format (blitz, rapid, or standard), pairing system used (Swiss, round-robin, Scheveningen, etc.), rating status (unrated or FIDE-rated), age categories (U8, U10, U12, etc.), gender (Open and Ladies), rating categories (U1800, U2400, etc.), and more.

Information on events I am planning and the most recent ones I have organised can be found below.
