Branding & Marketing

Marketing with Magnitude:
Corporate Programs, Promotional Programs and Custom Balloon Programs

The grandeur of gracefully rising above the crowd is second to none…especially when the scene has your logo and visual branding elements on the side of a hot air balloon! It is estimated that more than six million spectators annually attend hundreds of balloon events nationwide. This is more than any other outdoor activity including car races and baseball games. Your own corporate balloon can be featured at many of these events as well as other strategic locations that help you make a big impression on your target market.

“You and your team at Kansas City AeroSports define professionalism and the value you bring to our Wonder Bread® brand is tremendous. Not only do you skillfully pilot our beautiful Wonder® balloon, but you represent the brand exceptionally well in front of the public and media. We plan to continue our partnership for years to come because we think the way you embody our brand is well, simply Wonderful.” –Keith Aldredge, Flowers Foods, VP Marketing
