Advertising Inflatables: 4 Popular Ideas for Your Next Event
Using advertising inflatables is an effortless way to get people talking about your business and attract prospective clients.
Using advertising inflatables at your trade shows, conferences, fundraisers, and other special events has multiple benefits. They’re:
- More cost-effective over time than a billboard, radio, TV, and print advertising, yet outperform them in return on investment (ROI)
- Customizable to any shape, color, size, and design, depending on your brand and products
- Extremely versatile, hence can be used for different events throughout the year
- Highly mobile, allowing you to set them up in various locations, from the rooftop to the yard outside
When it comes to custom advertising inflatables, the only limit is your imagination. Anything from a giant shoe, balloon, or beanie, to product replicas can become an inflatable.
If you want to stand out from the crowd and increase your brand awareness at an upcoming event, use these popular advertising inflatable ideas for inspiration.
Idea #1: Custom Inflatable Product Replicas
At MVP Visuals, we believe in creating durable products that will stand the test of time, and are customized to showcase your unique brand and products.
And nothing catches the eye like a super-sized version of your product, visible from across a conference hall or the other side of the sports field.
The best inflatable product replica must mimic your product accurately.
That’s why we diligently ensure that everything, from the inflatable’s size, proportions, and colors, to even the tiniest details like stitching, matches your actual product perfectly.
Check out some examples of custom inflatable product replicas we’ve made below:
Brand: Shit That I Knit | Inflatable replica of their flagship product, hand knit beanies
Brand: Rangers 5K presented by Northwell Health | Inflatable replica of the race logo - perfect for photo-ops!
Brand: Amazon | Inflatable shoe for their ABE3 Fulfillment Center
Brand: Pilots and Places | Inflatable replica of Big Ben for their interactive event supporting their children's books
Idea #2: Inflatable Arches
Custom inflatable arches are excellent advertising inflatables because they:
- Offer a grand opportunity for your sponsors to be recognized if you’re holding a special marathon or fundraiser
- Make an outstanding centerpiece for a group photograph, further promoting your brand when the photos are posted online
- Are a dramatic and memorable way to mark an entrance or exit point for your special event or race
Marathons need a quality custom inflatable arch. They’re used at the starting line, the halfway mark, and the finish line. But for circuit races where the finish and starting line are the same, just one arch is enough.
Add your brand’s colors or logo to your inflatable arch, and your brand will instantly become a focal point at any special event.
Even better, inflatable arches come in different shapes: angled, circle, squared, or custom-made according to your specific needs. You’ll never run out of options.
For a lifetime of service from your inflatable arches, invest in removable customized banners. They allow you to change the branding of your arch and use it at different events throughout the year.
MVP Visuals offer three major types of arch banners to choose from, as shown in the table below.
Type Of Arch Banner
All MVP Visuals’ inflatable arches are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They’re made with durable polyester or PVC Tarpaulin fabrics to withstand regular use and harsh weather.

Idea #3: Custom Inflatable Tunnels
When most people think of inflatable tunnels, what comes to mind is a football tunnel that teams pass through before entering the sports field.
To make your entryway look even flashier while increasing your brand’s visibility, attach your brand’s inflatable mascot to the tunnel.
The inflatable mascot and entry tunnel combination will work together to create a captivating display that will leave a lasting impression on your customers.
Check out some of our custom inflatable entry tunnels below:
Brand: North Moore High School | Inflatable mascot tunnel for their varsity football team
Brand: Old Dominion University | Inflatable tunnel with printed door flap for their women's volleyball team
Brand: Ibuumerang | Light-up inflatable tunnel for a conference event
Expert tip: Enhance your inflatable tunnels with custom add-ons like printed door flaps or LED lighting.
Idea #4: Inflatable Bottles and Cans
Okay, okay - this is technically also an inflatable product replica, but we thought it deserved a section of its own! If you’re in the beverage industry, inflatable bottles and cans are the perfect advertising tools for all your promotions and events. They’re excellent crowd-pullers that will easily win your audience’s attention.
A quality inflatable bottle or can is a worthwhile investment because it’s:
- Lightweight: Some inflatable cans and bottles weigh as low as 10 pounds, making them the lightest inflatables.
- Easy to set up: It will be up and ready for use within a few minutes.
- Versatile: It works in every season, both indoors and outdoors.
- Customizable: It’s available in any shape, color, or design.
- Portable: Its lightweight nature makes it easy to carry to different event locations.
MVP Visuals’ inflatable bottles and cans are made with sturdy 300 denier polyester or heavy-duty PVC, which makes them durable and long-lasting even with regular use.
Below are a few ideas for inflatable cans and bottles to consider:
Brand: Wild Roots Spirits | Inflatable cans that replicate their craft canned cocktails
Brand: Suerox | Inflatable bottle that replicates their electrolyte beverage
Brand: Moment | Inflatable cans that replicate their focus-enhancing beverage. Featured on ABC's Shark Tank!
