Whimsical Blimps Make a Splash at Sporting Events


What’s the biggest attraction at any indoor sporting event? The players, of course. That is, until a boat-shaped, inflatable blimp soars overhead. And when coupons start falling from the above, all eyes immediately search for the source.

In a large arena, indoor sports like hockey and basketball are the perfect venues for an advertising blimp – boat-shaped or otherwise. If you’ve ever seen a stadium full of people all looking skyward, then you know inflatable blimps are great attention grabbers all on their own. Blimps are customizable so each has its own personality. Add a remote-control fan for steering, turn it loose above the crowd at halftime, then sit back and watch the reaction.

You can outfit your animated balloon with a mechanism to drop coupons or light-weight samples as it sails around the arena, making it perfect for corporate sponsorships. Large enough to cause a stir, yet easily deflatable for portability, remote-controlled blimps get fans revved up wherever they go.
