U.S. Balloon Announces Balloon Decor Workshops
U.S. Balloon, the largest nationwide wholesale balloon distributor, recently unveiled their 2013 Balloon School program, a series of educational workshops that will focus on creating air-filled designs, balloon sculptures and birthday decor. Workshops will begin this summer.
The popularity and demand for top-notch educational workshops have grown dramatically since the start of the helium shortage,” said Michael Isaacs, CEO and president of U.S. Balloon. “As the largest balloon distributor, we feel we have a responsibility to meet customers’ needs for quality education.””
The Balloon School courses will vary in skill level, proving to be a learning experience for both beginners and experts. Classes will provide merchandising tips, instructions on creating air-filled designs, balloon sculptures and wedding and birthday decor. Professionals from the nation’s top balloon vendors including Anagram, Qualatex and Betallic will teach these workshops throughout the year.
“”The classes will give retailers, decorators, florists and party stores the tools they need to not only compete in a world with less helium, but to be successful at it too,” Isaacs said. Attendees will be introduced to techniques and design creations that can be adapted to a variety of celebrations and occasions, and applicable to any balloon retailer. The full-day courses will be held in Staten Island, New York.
