The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon is one of the most recognized corporate symbols in the business world. In addition, it is also an excellent vehicle for obtaining positive media coverage and public relations. It is a natural and welcomed companion at nearly all community events as well as a focus of fascination by interested parties of all ages. As RE/MAX INTEGRA associates, we encourage you to become involved by sponsoring a balloon appearance at your local community celebration. Below are the six featured events you can choose from:
All eyes turn to the skies when the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon flies over your community. This makes a balloon fly-over a great branding option when you are unable to get on-site space at a local event. Flights vary, but last approximately one hour, and adhere to sunrise and sunset times and wind and weather restrictions.
RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon tether rides are a great option when you are able to get clearance for an on-site presence at your community event. In a tether event, passengers go up and come back down in the balloon while it is anchored to the ground at three fixed points. A tether event can last from 30 – 90 minutes depending on weather conditions and adhere to sunrise and sunset times and wind and weather restrictions. Tether rides require a 200 x 200 foot area of grass for set-up. Note: requesting party must be able to provide a tie-off vehicle and 4 ground crew members.
26-Foot Cold Air Balloon
The 26 foot tall RE/MAX inflatable is an excellent option for all-day branding exposure. It may be used inside or outside and is more flexible than the hot air balloon when it comes to weather conditions. The 26-foot balloon can be up day or night and requires 3 – 4 anchor points and a space approximately 30 x 30 feet. The 26-foot cold air balloon runs on electricity or a generator (upon request). It may be requested for use, but is always available for set up in the event that the hot air balloon cannot be inflated.
A RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon night glow consists of the pilot inflating the balloon on the ground after dark. The burners of the balloon create a “glowing” effect. A night glow is a great accent to fireworks displays and other night time events.
The RE/MAX Hot/Cold Air Balloons make a huge impact from a distance, but what if you don’t have the space for it? Request the Parade Kit to use at your local town parade, as the pilot shows up with the balloon basket and burner (shooting fire is always a hit), along with an 8 ft balloon for you to feature in your float. Flatbed/truck and additional decorations provided by local office.
Challenge the Wind School Program (NE only)
This program gives elementary school children the opportunity to get up close and personal with Big Max – an experience many would otherwise never have. The RE/MAX balloon pilot brings the balloon to a school in your local community. It’s a unique, educational and fun experience for everyone!
