Inflatable Arches

Inflatable Arches Add Fun to Cause Based Racing Events

Inflatable Hope in Motion ArchwayRacing for a Cause is More Exciting with Inflatable Arches

When you need an entrance – or an exit – custom inflatable archways mark the route in a highly professional manner. From corralling runners, to guiding visitors to the festival gate, to serving as a photo opp, inflatable arches light the way like beacons. And, because they are brandable, your sponsors get great exposure at the event and in the media.

Attention Grabbing

For pointing the way at charity races and walks, inflatable arches are ideal. Not only do they mark the beginning and end of the race with vibrant colors, but their impossible-to-miss size makes it clear that something important is happening in that spot. Registration, post-race hospitality and other functions are easily recognizable.

Easy Corporate Sponsorship

Inflatable archways perform double-duty with customizable color schemes to match any brand, and plenty of space for logos. Inflatable arches are durable enough to be used year after year at many different events, so adaptable advertising options are a must.

Your sponsor’s brand can be built into the design through the use of color or printed logos. Additionally, product replicas or other shapes can be integrated directly into the arch. If you need to accommodate many donors, or allow for changing sponsorship from year to year, choose an unbranded arch with detachable banners.

Flexible Designs

Think the only option for inflatable arches is the standard half-round? Not so. Their lightweight construction makes inflatable archways flexible enough for even the most whimsical design. Hosting a renaissance fair? Use a medieval castle gate for a fairytale entryway. Sporting event? Square and hexagonal arches bring to mind soccer or hockey goals. Auto show? You can’t beat a giant inflatable steering wheel. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Cold-air arches are available in a variety of sizes to meet your needs. They can stretch across a roadway or the entry to an exhibition hall. They can tower above your head for maximum attention-grabbing power, or fit easily inside a building. Inflatable arches are lightweight, so they’re easy to transport, yet durable enough to use year after year. For outdoor use, they tether to the ground for added stability.

You can relax and enjoy the race knowing these inflatables are helping to organize event participants and provide valuable advertising space for your sponsors. Vibrant colors and design flexibility add greater visibility and interest, while clearly pointing the way. Best of all, their affordable price makes your charity the real winner, and that’s a great way to wrap up any event.

Custom Inflatable Arches Are Perfect for Racing Events

Kids Marathon ArchwayAre you in the racing event industry? If so, you probably spend months sweating details for attendees, participants and the press. When all of your planning, organization, and hard work comes down to just a few hours of exposure, you need to make sure everything runs smoothly and looks great. What is the central focus of your event, for example? For many it’s their start/finish line archway. If you’re not already using them, you’ll find that custom inflatable arches can save you time, increase your sponsorship capacity, give your event a professional look and encourage participants to extend the experience through social media channels. In the racing event world, that pretty much rocks.

Here are six ways an inflatable archway will make you a racing event rockstar:

1. Advertise easily on your inflatable arch with sponsorship banners. These banners are versatile and can be changed yearly, if necessary. This valuable advertising space is professional and will be widely seen at the event since it is high above the crowd.

2. Since an inflatable event arch is customized, it’s able to be branded and look extremely professional and cohesive with your racing event. The vibrant colors will ensure that the archways are marking the important parts of the event.

3. It’s the digital age and we know that you need to constantly be thinking about social media. Inflatable archways make perfect photo opportunities that can feature participants, the event’s logo, and the sponsors all in one photo.

4. Similarly, an inflatable archway creates photo opportunities for traditional media that will gain maximum exposure for your event. Just imagine how many people will see the shot of your event with your logo and sponsor information!

5. At the race, time is everything. Huge, heavy props make set-up time-consuming and stressful. An inflatable arch sets up quickly – in mere minutes – and looks fantastic without missing a beat on the rest of the set-up.

6. Even with an impossible-to-miss size, clean up is a flash with an inflatable arch. Your inflatable will deflate and pack up easily in order to be moved to another event or stored for next year!

Magical Marketing with Inflatable Advertising Balloons

inflatable-dragonFlat, lifeless billboards don’t have it. Neither do banners that stretch across a sidewalk or roadway. And radio spots? When is the last time you actually listened to one? None of these antiquated advertising methods has the magical marketing power of a giant inflatable.

When “Shrek, the Musical” hits town, which would you rather have working for you – a newspaper ad, or a giant pink dragon? Dragon’s job might be to scare away suitors, but set Fiona’s keeper soaring over the theater, and curious crowds will appear as if by magic. You can’t lug a billboard on a 16-city tour, and no one will clamor to take pictures of a vinyl banner. Let Dragon loose, though, and everyone with a camera will be on hand to witness the show – including the press!

No other advertising medium is as portable, versatile – and just plain fun – as inflatables. They’re simple to set up, easy to transport from place to place, and a clever conversation starter to boot. Best of all, inflatable advertising balloons aren’t just one-hit wonders. Durable construction and fade-resistant materials mean Dragon will keep guarding Fiona for as long as the show lasts.
