It just seems natural that adjacent to one of the world’s most famous theme parks, inspired by the world’s greatest Imagineer, comes the World Balloon Convention!
Join us March 23-25, 2021 in Orlando, FL, USA for an event second-to-none in the balloon industry. As a delegate of WBC, you’ll celebrate your craft with some of the most creative and successful artisans in the balloon industry. Between classes and WBC special events, take advantage of the host resort, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. Spanning 1,500 acres, the resort features include several pools and waterfalls, numerous sporting activities, restaurants and lounge venues, and a world-class spa. After the convention, stick around and treat yourself to nearby amusement parks. The resort offers a FREE shuttle to and from all the area parks. As well, cut the ticket line and ask the hotel concierge to put together an entertainment package tailored just for you!
I’m excited that WBC is coming to Orlando, ‘my backyard.’ Orlando is the home of Disney World™, Universal Orlando Resort™, and Citywalk, so I look forward to serving as a tour guide for some of my international balloon friends. There’s also tons of great shopping at the Orlando outlets. For the more adventurous, you can get a bird’s eye view of the city from the Orlando Eye or the 450-foot tall Orlando Starflyer, ‘the world’s tallest swing ride!’ If you love the beach, it’s just an hour or two drive from the convention hotel.

"There is just something magical about being in the same room with balloon professionals from around the world," said Joette. "We do not all speak the same language; however our passion of bringing joy to the world through the magic of balloons overcomes the language barriers. We all speak balloons. When I share my WBC photos at local networking events, people are so amazed by the artistry and at the vastness of our industry. I am a firm believer that attending conventions is not just about what we learn in classes, but building a professional network with other balloon business owners to serve as our support system as we travel the ups and downs of being a business owner. Having someone to talk to who truly understands what we are experiencing is priceless."
Billy Damon of Damon Entertainment, also of Orlando added, “WBC has opened up new product options for me to offer to my clients, and in turn has increased my income! By being able to offer these new product selections, I’ve become more valuable to my clients. In addition, Orlando is the number one family vacation spot in the US, so being able to combine a family vacation and a business convention is the best blend of both interests!”
We can’t wait to share with you all the offerings of WBC 2021 and Orlando. We’ve imagined it just for you! Follow WBC on Facebook for event announcements and fun contests leading up to the event.
