Qualatex Training Event
Qualatex strongly believes in educating event planners, retailers and individuals about how to make the best use of their superior quality balloons so frequently organises training events. The last event in Kenya was on the 16th and 17th of October 2019. Celebrated certified balloon artists, Dante Longhi and Keith Stirman flew in from the US and the UK to hold a 2 day workshop in Nairobi and were accompanied by the Head of Emerging Market, Jag Dhillon and the Head of Marketing, Ishani Dubb. The team, along with The Dream Factory Kenya, conducted a workshop on balloon design techniques and training which was very well received and was a popular and much talked about event. One of the highlights of the event was making the very first Kenyan flag out of balloons which was later displayed at Sarit Centre, Westlands. The delegates learnt how to make luxury bouquets, columns and balloon walls and balloon characters amongst other things.
The Dream Factory brought together some of the best balloon artists in Nairobi to create “Clouds with a Silver Lining”, a balloon design done for Tribe Hotel, for their annual fashion show, Tribal Chic. This was the 10 year anniversary for the much talked about fashion show. The artists created clouds over the catwalk truss, falling down from the high ceiling, as well as a huge balloon wall and an entrance organic arch. In total, approximately 15,000 balloons were used for this elaborate balloon design, one of the biggest balloon decor designs in Kenya till date.
