Event in the spotlight: Phestival of Phenomenon

30th birthday parties don't get much more spectacular than this.

Perth-based event specialists Phenomenon Creative Events recently threw a 30th birthday party to rival them all, with the Phestival of Phenomenon.

Celebrating 30 years in event services, the Phenomenon warehouses and carpark were transformed to showcase a range of creative concepts and furniture in a series of themed spaces for the 300 guests to enjoy.

Here, the team at Phenomenon Creative Events give us a behind-the-scenes look at the event:

What was the event all about?

This was a celebration for our 30th anniversary, while being a showcase of what we can do. It also gave us the chance to show our clients, fellow suppliers and venues some of the new furniture and styling items that arrived this year.

The team planned and transformed the two warehouses into nine different themed and styled areas to showcase a small selection of what Phenomenon can do. Not only did we deliver the theming and styling side of the event but also organised every aspect of the night with the help of our sponsors.

It took 10 days on a 20-hour work clock to prepare the spaces for the event.

What were some of the highlights?

Guests were treated to a sensory wonderland of theming and styling at the Phestival of Phenomenon. The highlights of the night included roving entertainment, live bands, plus a selection of food and beverages served from different high-end Perth caterers.

Interactive elements included a silent disco in the ‘fright night’ area, a movie playing on a huge LED screen in the 1950s drive in area and a hidden, speakeasy bar which required a secret password to enter.

Guests were also immersed in the other themed areas including modern oriental, enchanted garden, steampunk, winter lodge and Havana nights.

Asking our guests their favorite part sparked debate, as different sections appealed to different people!
