MLS Cup Trophy Advertising Inflatable

Providing goods and services to special events encompasses the majority of our day-to-day operations. When adding an inflatable or balloon as a prop/featured focal point to any event, multiple requirements must be met and accounted for many times over. Requirements can range from the simple task of how to tether these giants in place, to something a little more complex like a time constraint.

For the 2015 Major League Soccer Cup game held in Columbus, Ohio, the MLS Cup Trophy was a focal point and intended to be a featured item in the presentation ceremonies. There were two compulsory prerequisites which needed to be addressed to incorporate this as an advertising inflatable into the show.

  1. It cannot look like a standard bouncy house. An inflatable look would “cheapen the brand.”
  2. It would be used in both Pre and Post Game events and the giant 25’ advertising inflatable had to inflate in less than 45 seconds.

Making the inflatable look as clean as possible lead us to digitally printing every square inch of the visual parts. In aggregate we printed and laminated 1,350 sq.ft. The printing was used as a double layer to every part of the inflatable. This engineering lead to no visible gusset seams… a seamless look.

Addressing the second line item was a little easier for our company of over 25 years’ experience. Inflating this within the time constraint given meant adding additional fans. This allowed us to get the inflatable up fairly quickly.

Come game time it looked great and went from a pile of fabric to this shiny 25’ tall centerpiece, nationally broadcast on television, within 36 second. We could have gone faster if needed.🙂 Oh and we built it in under two weeks.  Follow us on facebook to see our recent creations.

Outdoor Inflatable, Advertising Balloons, Yamaha Giant Balloon Manufacturing

Watch this advertising inflatable video of a Yamaha outdoor inflatable, built by Big Events in San Diego County (Oceanside), California. Yamaha approached us to build a promotional inflatable, announcing the release of their Yamaha V Max SHO 150 out board motor. Yamaha’s V MAX SHO® is the world’s first 4.2L Super High Output four stroke outboard motor for bass boats. The four stroke V MAX SHO offers all the advantages of a two stroke in a clean burning, fuel efficient four stroke. We surpassed Yamaha’s expectations with this outdoor inflatable-watch the process of designing and building this advertising balloon replica of the Yamaha out board motor.

Notice the steps involved in creating a custom inflatable advertising balloon:

  1. Initial sketch drafts. Based upon consultation with Yamaha’s objectives, we drew initial images of the Yamaha custom inflatable. With their advertising balloon plans, we responded with a detailed quote. (Using CAD (Computer Aided Design) software, our attention to detail and quality are the highest in the industry.) We completed the rough draft images for feedback and approval.
  2. Scale model mold is built of the advertising balloon. We transformed the two dimensional images to a scaled down 3D clay mold for design proportions.
  3. Outdoor Inflatable Balloon construction- create patterns, sew, paint. The real fun and excitement now begins with building the Yamaha promotional balloon. As you see in the time lapse giant advertising balloon video, we create patterns, sew the material, and paint the promotional inflatables according to color and design soecs. Quality checks are part of each step of the custom inflatable construction process.
  4. Outdoor Inflatable Testing.  The finished advertising balloon passes the “street test” for packaging, unloading, assembly, and air inflation. (With every outdoor inflatable balloon rental or purchase, we supply the air machines for proper inflation.)
  5. Package and Ship. The Yamaha V MAX SHO® 150 out board motor inflatable balloon is ready for shipping and delivery.
  6. Get Noticed, and Get Results!! If you are impressed with this Yamaha inflatable balloon, imagine how your business or product will be promoted with a custom advertising inflatable from Big Events in Oceanside, CA.

We are your best source for Helium Parade Balloons, Giant Advertising Balloons, Helium Spheres (advertising & lighted) and Giant Cold-Air/ Fan Powered Inflatables.

Helium Parade Balloon Introduction Series – 45’ Reindeer

Featuring: 45’ Reindeer Parade Balloon

We don’t know which of Santa’s reindeer this fellow is, but we have our suspicions.

This Reindeer is over forty feet long, with a jingle bell harness and a very mysterious nose. He is accustomed to flying with Santa and so he always tries to do his very best when flying down the parade route with his legs outstretched.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It requires 2400 cubic feet of helium to fly and it helps to have twenty-four elves to guide him down the parade route. He has been spotted all all over the world and even in commercials.

Helium Parade Balloon Introduction Series – 45’ Newspaper Dog

Featuring: 45’ Newspaper Dog Parade Balloon

Here is one of “man’s best friends” and it is lucky that he is friendly because he measures over forty-five feet long, fifteen feet high and almost eighteen feet wide.  Of course, you have to be really big to carry an eighteen foot newspaper down a parade route.

Our Newspaper Dog, besides being very friendly, is extremely well trained and obedient.  It typically takes twenty-four of his trainers to direct him down a parade route.  When he come out to play, we fill him with over 3,000 cubic feet of helium, unfurl the 480 feet of lines that hold him in place and tell him about the great crowd that has come to see him.

Helium Parade Balloon Introduction Series – 30’ Magic Rabbit

Featuring: 30’ Magic Rabbit Parade Balloon

Yes, there is something magic and special about the old classic magic trick of pulling a rabbit out of a hat.  But this is no ordinary Magic Rabbit balloon.

It took over 140 yards of leak proof helium fabric and one hundred twenty man hours to design, pattern and build this giant magic hat with the happy rabbit. The trick to keeping it flying is 1500 cubic feet of helium and twelve magicians whose job it is to keep the rabbit from disappearing.
