Tampon Ceiling Tops New Event Ideas

Tampon-Filled Ceiling Tops Innovative New Attractions

A ceiling installation made of dangling tampons and a bedding-themed photo booth are among the creative new meeting and event ideas implemented at recent U.S. events.

BizBash.com compiled a list of these attractions, which can help to inspire planners, who are always looking to add creative new features to their meetings and events. The good news is that possibilities are limitless.

U by Kotex’s the Period Shop: As part of U by Kotex’s Period Projects, a multiyear program and project series aimed at changing the way people think about periods, the brand hosted the first-ever period pop-up shop from May 13–15  in New York City’s Flatiron neighborhood. The event featured a ceiling installation created with dangling tampons as well as a shop stocked with on-theme merchandise by primarily female-owned companies, including Gullah Girl PMS tea, Baggu pouches and Coucou Suzette socks.

Designs for Dignity Spring Gala: A photo booth, inspired by bedding company and event sponsor Hastens, featured a checkered sheet backdrop and pillows, to make it seem as if attendees were lying in bed. Kehoe Designs hosted this event, held on May 5 at The Geraghty in Chicago.

California Science Center Discovery Ball: Held on May 20 in Marina del Rey, California, this ball celebrated the acquisition of ET-94, the last space flight-qualified external tank in existence. The event featured a multicultural theme inspired by the tank’s journey from New Orleans to Los Angeles. The outdoor cocktail space resembled a New Orleans street scene, with live jazz and hanging greenery. Entertainers performed in birdcage-style decor pieces above the stage and guests dined in a tent structure, with the illuminated tank providing a dramatic backdrop outside.

Propel Co: Labs pop-up program: Sports drink brand Propel teamed up with experiential agency Invisible North to launch this fitness program in Venice Beach, California, April 27–30. It featured a 3-D photo booth that allowed attendees to become part of the Propel campaign imagery.

Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Kaleidoscope Ball: This event, which took place May 21 at 3 Labs in Culver City, California, featured a circus-inspired bar, blending with the Circus for Research theme.

As I already had a career, news that I had matriculated into the program was met with mixed responses. Many asked why at this point in my career I felt it necessary, while others insisted I could teach the curriculum (without knowing it, mind you). And still others roared with encouragement, “Good for you! You see…it’s never too late!”—a response I think I’ll refer to from now on as the smack of backhanded wisdom.
