how to name a person who conducts a concert, party ?
the only suitable word I found is COMPERE
don �t know why, but somehow I do not like that word, maybe you know some equivalents (a person who conducts a public event, a concert, a schol party)

Dear Luglena,
Comp�re, (a man), comm�re, (a woman), host, hostess, Master of Ceremonies, Mistress of Ceremonies, (not often used), MC, emcee, announcer, presenter, organiser, manager, co-ordinator, administrator, marshall, director, supervisor, conductor, impresario, leader.
Some of these words are more suitable than others.

Host is I think a very suitable word for this. Party host sounds very natural Smile and by conduct, if you mean organize or plan, you can use organizer or planner I guess, as in Wedding organizer/Wedding planner.
