Volunteers play an important role in events worldwide. This research examines the importance of volunteers’ motivation and satisfaction during events by using Sing China as a case study. This research focuses on events, volunteers, volunteer recruitment, volunteer rewards and volunteer retention. The research uses both quantitative and qualitative methods. 50 random strangers off the street were surveyed., Published journals were used as academic support for the theories. The results show that people are interested in cultural events and they come to volunteer for the reason of improving personal values and build self-esteem. For the part of volunteer motivation, most of the participants show themselves willing to receive small gifts after volunteering. Providing a chance for volunteers to choose jobs which suit them, and providing volunteer training are the main things that participants think should improve during the events.
