KIISing Lips at Giant Inflatables!

Image
When you do a job well, invariably word-of-mouth leads to more jobs.  When you do it excellently, you can get 3 new jobs like we did on this KIIS job for Australian Radio Network (“ARN”).
When ARN was looking for some custom illuminated inflatable logo KIIS lips with programmable internal illumination, they had no hesitation in contacting Giant Inflatables to do the job.  The best referral is a job well done and that is what we deliver time and time again.
After we produced 2 highly visible inflatable shelters, we were asked to make an inflatable logo that had internal programmable lighting.
It was a fun, but challenging ask.  How to put programmable illumination inside an inflatable, controlled from the outside without disturbing the inflation or deflation.
Well once again our Genius Design Team put it together with our engineering wizards to create the custom illuminated inflatable logo KIIS lips.


The results speak for themselves.
Following this job, we have been asked to make anoth…

Buy CHEAP...Pay DEAR!

Another lesson in Experience - Cheap is Dear !When we were approached by one of our dynamic clients, Bubble Soccer 2 Uto redesign their Dart Soccer Target Board which they bought directly from a Chinese Manufacturer online we started thinking about why our clients use Giant Inflatables to supply their inflatable, interactive, sports activations when they can order from China off the web for a 1/3 of the price.
It really all boils down to Intellectual Property and  Design. Our Genius Design Team incorporate cutting edge technology and experienced based design to create unique inflatable product that are lightweight, reliable over its event life, and simple and safe to operate.
The saying that “Cheap is Dear” really is applicable here.  The cheap off the shelf Chinese version that our client purchased turned out to be so heavy and cumbersome that the one amazing benefit of Inflatables is completely removed, namely, portability and ease of set up and pack down.
So, why use Giant Inflatables…

Bulls-Eye or Goodbye !

When we created our first Giant Inflatable Branded Jersey for the Corporate Sponsor of a sports team we created the shape and design which would accommodate our inflatable technology.

Our first attempt was the Cycling Australia Jersey with a replaceable Velcro patch with the name of the event as a removable banner.
It worked perfectly adequately in that it was a Giant Inflatable and therefore highly visible with clear branding and notification of the event name.  But it was not as precise as other replicas we had created in a smaller version.
Our next request to create a Giant Inflatable Jersey was by the Sponsoring Insurance Company NIB who set up an entire playground with fantastic branding.  Standing out from the crowd was the enormous, highly visible and highly branded NSW Blues Jersey.

Over time our technology improved, our R&D successfully developed new and better inflatable technologies capable of more specific, varied and versatile sizes and shapes.  Our modelling programs bec…

Tennis: It's all about the LOVE!

The Australian Open is the first of the four annual global tennis events known as the GRAND SLAM. The other three in the competition are the US Open, Wimbledon and the French Open. The Australian Open has the second highest attendance figures (second to the US Open).
It was the first of the Grand Slam Tournaments to feature retractable roofs over all 3 of the primary courts, namely, the Hisense Arena, Margaret Court Arena and Rod Laver Arena.
It also made sure that its Tennis Fans were entertained on their way to the games, back from the games and at the Arenas.
Tennis Australia and Tennis New Zealand use Giant Inflatables to produce their fan activities in the form of Inflatable Tennis Games and Arenas. These Giant Inflatables promote the sport of tennis, up-skill the users of the Inflatables, and ensure that its fans have lots of interactive sports activities that build the Tennis Brand and fan engagement.

NRL 2016 Finals – who's in the running?
It is that time of year again – Finals.  Who is going to win?  Here are some thoughts and why we choose Melbourne Storm.



The Penrith Panthers have an incredibly intuitive and talented pool of young players.  If they can stay in the game, keep up their unstoppable attack and keep building their defense, they have a solid chance at being a side to watch.

Sitting at number 5 on the Finals Ladder, the Brisbane Broncos are an experienced and talented team with depth of experience in Origin and Test players.  Provided all players are firing on all cylinders, this outside chance could be a threat. Come on Ben Hunt – show us what you can do!

Last year’s Premiers, the North Queensland Cowboys, could very easily be one of the grand finalist teams this year.  Will they win? Provided they can overcome suspicion and break the Premier’s curse of no back-to-back premier winners, they have the same team and last year with experience and confidence. They are …

Point of Sale (POS) sealed inflatables
Welcome to the wonderful world of POSreplicas. POS inflatables are inflatable products most often displayed at the point of sale of a product. These attention grabbing, larger-than-life, replicas are the perfect way to activate a brand.  One of the key ways to activate a brand is to attract consumer interest and attention at the Point of Sale to stimulate the purchase of the product.
Add an activity to get consumer engagement and you kill two birds with one stone.  Firstly your consumer notices your product and secondly by actively creating a POS with a taste test or throwing competition to win a  product by throwing at the POS inflatable target you add the dimension of engagement - one of the most powerful tools to communicate a brand with a potential consumer.

 POS and Brand Activation
The standard or usual POS tools have been posters, banners and display stands at the end of aisles.  However there is a bigger trend hitting the shelves in the shape…
