Outdoor meet-and-greets, concerts, and sporting competitions are a great way to make a statement whether you're raising funds, supporting your team, or marketing your business.
Stand-out features such as custom inflatables, banners, flags, and custom tablecloths will take your event up a notch.
At MVP Visuals, we offer a range of fully customized branded displays to help you achieve your event goals.
In the spotlight today is the custom inflatable tunnel—a major hit at outdoor events such as fun runs or football games.
So, let’s go into detail about why the custom inflatable tunnel is a must-have to promote your business, charity, or cause.
Benefit 1 - Increases Your Visibility
Nothing says “look at me” better than a large, well designed, inflatable tunnel. It attracts attention from afar and creates the kind of buzz needed to make your brand stand out.
Plus, the tunnel’s large size gives you ample space to display a message that will help increase your visibility.
Custom inflatable tunnels are also incredibly versatile when it comes to style and potential uses.
If you’re holding a trade show, for example, you can turn your inflatable tunnel into a tent-like structure to improve your customers’ experience.
At a big football game your team can run onto the field from an inflatable tunnel shaped like your team's mascot or a helmet. You can then use that same tent to attract freshman students to join your team at a college fair.
Combine your custom tunnel with an inflatable obstacle course to create an exciting experience for your customers and guests.
By using inflatable structures you give your customers a memorable experience that will help in building solid relationships.
Here’s what you need to remember to improve your inflatable tunnels:
|Stick to brand colors||Your colors represent your brand identity so keep to the same ones to stay visible|
|Use dye-sublimation printing||Dye-sublimation printing blends the design onto the material so you can use a wider range of colors
You will also get more vibrant and attractive images that are sure to make the right impression
|Maximize use of space||Use the entire tunnel surface area to send a message
For instance, you can print your catchphrase, business name, or charity sponsors’ names in large bold print on both sides of the tent
|Create unique designs||Out of the ordinary designs are more likely to draw attention and are easier to remember so let your imagination run wild|

Benefit 2 - Easy to Transport, Setup and Dismantle
Time is money! The longer you take to set up your events, the greater your labor costs.
Fortunately, custom inflatable tunnels are a significantly quick setup.
All you have to do is:
- Remove debris from the area to prevent damage to the inflatable.
- Locate the tunnel’s anchor points and the opening for the blower.
- Close the zippers and velcro openings.
- Lay the inflatable flat on the ground.
- Put your blower on the inflatable's opening and firmly attach it to the air tube.
- Switch the blower on and fill up the inflatable, making sure to check the air pressure to avoid overfilling.
- Use anchors to hold the tunnel securely to the ground to prevent it from wobbling or being blown away by the wind.
Note: Your tunnel will have two blower openings if the mascot and tunnel head are constructed separately.
Your tunnel will now be ready for use in under 10 minutes.
To take it down you only need to:
- Turn the blower off and remove it from the inflatable’s opening.
- Open the velcro openings, and zipper, then stand back and watch it deflate.
It takes about 10–20 minutes for the tunnel to completely deflate. You can now fold, roll, and pack it up for later use.
The ease of setup and dismantling lets you take your marketing campaign on the road without assistance.
It is also lightweight and portable, making it a good fit for those out-of-town events.
Benefit 3 - Long-Lasting and Economic
Using a billboard to market your business, charity, or organization can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Inflatable tunnels make for attractive marketing at a fraction of the cost.
You can save even more money by using the same tunnel over and over.
For instance, it can be:
- An entrance at a sporting event you’re promoting
- A tent at a roadshow
- Part of an obstacle course for your fun day
- The entrance of your office for a meet-and-greet
The versatility lets you stretch your marketing budget.
There are also no maintenance costs involved. To keep the tunnel clean, simply wipe with a non-abrasive cloth and soapy water.
