NEC Spring Fair 2011

The Spring Fair 2011 is in full swing at the NEC and since we are only 10 mile  from the venue it makes sence to visit and put names to faces and look at the new products available for 2011. My main port of call is Hall 5 were we find Qualatex (Pioneer Europe) displaying their new products which now include the long-awaited 34″ foils numbers which are available in Gold, Silver, Blue and Pink. The stand is bold and bright and took over 3 days to build and decorate, well done to the Qualatex team, it looks stunning as usual.

The Taper Foils add a great splash of colour

The Spring Fair is an annual event and starts the first weekend in February and is open for 5 days and occupies over 15 of the immense exhibition halls at the NEC in Birmingham. The NEC had direct links to rail network and is connected to Birmingham Airport (BHX) via a 5 minute monorail ride and can boast at being the biggest exhibition in the world, not a bad record for little old England Town.

We also have a full digital print arm to the company supplying business stationary and balloon race labels. As for me I'm self motivated, love my job and private life. Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
