From Feminist Youth Conferences to Boy Band Super Tours

These memorable Gen Z experiences range from feminist youth conferences to boy band super tours that feature a mix of live music and interactive art. While branded experiences like a Playstation gaming pop-up are targeting more mature Gen Z members, maker workshops and creative camps are resonating with younger audiences.

Standouts include tween sewing studios and child chef camps that encourage creativity, collaboration and hands-on learning. Inspired by Millennial parents -- whose love of DIY crafts and maker culture is passed on to their offspring -- these workshops aim to decrease too much screen time, a side effect of Gen Z's early exposure to technology.

Other memorable Gen Z experiences include tech-powered examples like virtual aquarium simulators and VR-connected roller coasters along with entrepreneurial innovations like a streaming summit that aims to help teen web influencers gain more exposure.
