Einführungsbälle/Debutantenbälle
Explanation:
Ich glaube bei Eröffnungsball oder Einweihungsball geht es um die Eröffnung oder Einweihung des Hotels selber. Das wäre dann ein einmaliges Ereigniss.

Bei Einführungsbällen geht es um die Einführung junger Leute in die Gesellschaft. Das kommt schon öfter vor und ist eben ein gesellschaftliches Ereignis.
