It’s Colossal, It’s Extraordinary, It’s Larger Than Life!

Wichita, KS, USA, APRIL 21, 2021— Pioneer Balloon Company, manufacturer of Qualatex and Northstar balloons, announced today its support of “The Big Balloon Build,” an event designed to benefit industry professionals and regional charities.

The Big Balloon Build, or BBB, is a unique and live event. It’s a large-scale balloon build designed for balloon professionals who want to be part of an amazing challenge, a social experience with old and new friends and colleagues, and who want to partner with an area charity to provide support to families and their children with special needs.

The Build takes place over several days. Artisans refine their skills and learn new techniques while constructing an enormous and magical walk-through wonderland during that time. It's sure to mesmerize the child in all of us! The display is public, with ticket sales benefiting a chosen charity.

“Working together as a close-knit team over several days developing this unique balloon wonderland is rewarding, but also demanding,” said Stuart Davies, owner of Beyond Balloons of the United Kingdom and creator of the Big Balloon Build. “I am so excited about the future development of the Big Balloon Build in partnership with Pioneer Balloons and Premium Balloon Accessories, being able to have this impact across different states around the USA over the coming years.”

Held initially only in the United Kingdom, the support of Pioneer Balloon Company helps to promote a series of Big Balloon Builds across the United States. “This is an industry event like none other! From the education and experience for balloon artists, to the financial impact on the local community, and ultimately the benefiting charity, it's a win, win, win! We can't wait to see the JOY balloons will bring as the BBB visits communities across the United States,” said Susan Dhillon, Marketing Communications Director, Pioneer Balloon Company.
