WHAT IS THE
BIG BALLOON BUILD™
What is the Big Balloon Build™?
We make a difference to the world – and those that need it most – through the joy of balloons.
Working alongside charities, communities, businesses and local leaders, our aim is to inspire, empower, and support positive change… locally and globally.
We bring together charities and balloon artists to create larger-than-life experiences called Balloon Worlds.

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.
Signing up as a Balloon Artist to be involved
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.

Participating in the Big Balloon Build means participating in sustainable practices.
We are proud members of the Pro-Environment Balloon Alliance.
We are committed to responsible sourcing: all balloons we use are made from rubber trees located in plantations that are Rainforest Alliance Certified™ We do not use helium, plastic or foil balloons at our Builds.
The Big Balloon Build works with balloon professionals, environmental groups, government and media to promote environmental responsibility and use of sustainable and safe balloon practices. We only use Gemar Balloons which are industry leaders in sustainability.
Partnering with the best in the business
There are four major partners in each and every Big Balloon Build. The HOST Balloon Company, and Charity that they are supporting, provide the local focus. See our page "Host a Build" for more info.
Then we have our partners in the Balloon World. They are Gemar Balloons and PremiumConwin.
PremiumConwin, supply us with their full range of professional balloon inflation equipment, and Gemar Balloons, supply us with sustainable balloons. We use both products exclusively on each and every Big Balloon Build Worldwide.
