We do this at summer camp. It helps a little bit.

I think it depends on what brand you use. Gain and store brands don't seem to work as well as the big name brands.

Don't hold out door events after dark.  Have a lot of basil plants sitting around.

Depends on the size of the group. We have used candles, bug spray, bug wipes, they all help a bit, not not a lot. People swear by the belt clip repellants, I have never tried, so I can't say.

You can fog the area a couple hours before, and/or set up fans..we use a box fan on our deck, misquitos can't fly in windy conditions!
