Camping and Caravan Show 2011 NEC Birmingham


So there I was sitting at my desk on Monday morning trying to recover from the weekend when the phone rings. Its and enquiry for helium gas to fill a blimp at the NEC Birmingham in Hall 5 for the Camping and Caravan Show. OK no problem I tell the client when do you need it for, “NOW” came the reply and can you fill the blimp for me as well. Luckily we keep a good stock of helium gas and I was able to help the customer, arrived on site at 4.30pm, inflated the blimp with in 20 minutes.


Have you ever wondered how much helium is in a large BOC cylinder. Enough to fill an 8ft sphere

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.
