Behind the Scenes with Intrepid Museum’s Special Events
Special Events Staff
Welcome to the After Party by the Intrepid Museum’s Special Events Team. Here we’ll give you a look behind the velvet ropes at one of the most exceptional venues in New York, and we’ll tell you what’s catching our eye in the industry and beyond. Just like our events, each of us has a unique style. We’ll be giving you the good, the bad and the outrageously inspiring from our life aboard the ship. Join us for the After Party!

With daily advances in technology, staying on top of the trends can be challenging. Help your event stand out by thinking “outside the box” and beyond the regular photo booth that used to be the trendiest way to enhance guest experiences.


Get Creative! Provide guests with a blank canvas in the form of a large foam sign, painted wall or rolls of paper. This will encourage self-expression and provide a unique outlet to praise an honoree or celebrate a cause. For an eco-friendly version, opt for a digital graffiti wall.

Make Music! TouchTunes Interactive Network's Virtuo machine prints out strips of images with custom backgrounds like a traditional photo booth, and it’s also a digital jukebox and karaoke machine!

Shake Your Moneymaker! At a recent event aboard Intrepid, a light-up dance floor served as a great décor feature with real appeal. Seventies roller girls encouraged guests to find their inner disco queens! Take it a step further with a sustainable, kinetic-powered dance floor that only lights up when people dance on it.

Get Democratic! Encourage guests to get involved in the event by providing a forum to vote or give feedback on an aspect of the evening. For instance, what were your favorite hors d’oeuvres? Did the performer wow the crowd? Which new company logo is the favorite? Ballots can be cast online before your event or via iPad voting kiosks on-site.
