Event Report: #UrbanArt Decor in #DTLA - The Ultra Hip Event
Budtender Appreciation Day Southern California
March 12, 2017, 6-10PM
The Container Yard in Downtown Los Angeles,
a "creative collective with the capacity to facilitate and welcome collaborations that align with their ethos".
The first event of this kind in Southern California was "invitation only" and featured many sponsors from the industry.
We were tasked with providing event support: creating an art-inspired decor to match the space and the unconventional event style, as well as interactive, fun activities for this mostly young group of guests.
Here is our event report.
Visitors to our offices in an industrial area of South Los Angeles had gotten a "whiff" of our greenhouse neighbors in the past. We have been surrounded by budtenders for quite a while, literally just around the corner from a Sheriff station!
Well, it's now legal. California voters passed Proposition 64 in November 2016, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in California.
This allows California's arguably largest agricultural industry to go mainstream.
Dope Magazine, among many others in this industry, is expanding and organizing events.
It allowed us to stretch our event design and decor muscle in a very free wheeling, creative, fun environment. Brynne Peña had the pleasure of producing this event.
Besides enjoying all the goodies the sponsors generously distributed in gift bags, the guests had a blast playing trendy games: air hockey, giant jenga and skee ball.
Happy to report that the event was a success!
Dope Magazine reports: "Guests at this event sported smiles from ear to ear, and said the party was a smoker’s paradise.....As DOPE’s first event in Southern California, the B.A.D. Party set the bar for the Los Angeles cannabis scene, and started off the spring season with a bang."
Or should we say bong?
Wishing you a fabulous week - and thank you for reading!
