WHAT IS THE
BIG BALLOON BUILD™
What is the Big Balloon Build™?
It's not a training course or a convention .... It's not like anything you've done before!
Every Big Balloon Build™ is different, each an absolutely unique opportunity! Allowing you to create something you could not do alone.
A fun social experience, where you immerse yourself in a LIVE project with like minded people. Challenging yourself as an individual, and as part of a team to create interactive world-class decor for an amazing cause.

Making a difference in the Community
The Big Balloon Build™ is focused on a local charitable cause, whose mission is to promote the health and wellbeing of children, whether they are underprivileged or have a disability.
The Big Balloon Build will give them an experience unlike any other. Creating a magical immersive wonderland out of balloons.
Additionally it raises awareness of the cause, providing an opportunity for them to gain additional support.
Using more balloons than you've ever seen!
As a balloon artist, you have dreamed of working on giant projects, creating something spectacular. However this is out of reach for the majority of decorators working on their own.
The Big Balloon Build™ gives the opportunity to create an unbelievable display. Working as part of a team with like minded balloon decorators, artists and twisters.
Depending on the build we will use anywhere between 60,000 and 100,000+ balloons.
What can you expect?
All involved need to commit fully to being part of the team. You must be open to challenging yourself, and being challenged by others. Discovering what you are capable of within a supportive environment.
We will really push your boundaries as balloon artists and as a team over the length of the build. Each day will have a structured building time between 8.30am to 5.30pm
Just as important is the social side. Developing lifelong friendships and connections while relaxing and chatting over food and drinks each evening
Opening your horizons to what is possible!
You will be involved in every aspect of delivery, from inflating tens of thousands of balloons to solving problems.
You may be looking at some of these pictures and thinking "I can't do this, it's too big!"
Part of being involved in the Big Balloon Build™ is showing what is possible, empowering you with an amazing sense of individual achievement and team satisfaction from what we create together.
