Event organizers are always looking for new ways to grab and hold attention with something exciting, fun, and memorable. At the same time, venues need to be practical and reliable. Finding a way to bring together the unexpected with the pragmatic is the challenge of every event planner. Inflatable domes are an excellent way to make your event stand out. These semi-permanent structures turn an outdoor location into a unique enclosed environment. Inside, you create any experience you can imagine, making your next event into an unforgettable experience.
Why use an inflatable dome?
Inflatable domes are a unique indoor space, perfect for trade shows, art performances, exhibitions, and more. The futuristic appearance is both eye-catching and sleek, great for generating buzz and providing a memorable moment.
Unlike a tent, domes don’t require poles to keep the ceiling in place. This means your venue is open and spacious, allowing for greater freedom of movement – ideal for concerts and dance events.
The smooth interior skin of the dome is perfect for a 360o video projection. This allows for anything from immersive audio-video experiences to elegant, to dynamic mood lighting.
How Do Inflatable Domes Work?
To keep a dome inflated, industrial-strength blowers are used to constantly push air inside. Air pressure in the dome is slightly elevated, which keeps the dome upright. The skin is made of ultra-thick vinyl to reduce the chance of tears or rips.
While inflatable domes may look like giant balloons, constructing one is a bit more complicated than simply filling it with air. Anchoring and ballasting are required to secure the dome. Decking and flooring are also assembled based on the customer’s needs. Once the foundation is ready, the dome itself is installed and inflated. The installation also includes heating, cooling, and electrical.
The whole set-up process takes about two weeks, depending on size, location, and the project’s complexity. But don’t worry – our team of experts takes care of everything – installation, operation, and tear-down.
What Can You Do Inside an Inflatable Dome?
Inflatable domes are designed for temporary or semi-permanent installation. The heating and cooling systems mean your guests can remain comfortable in a range of weather conditions. Inside, you can organize the space in any way you like! Seating areas, exhibition booths, dance floors, or performance stages are all possible. Sizes range from 100 ft (30 m) to 300 ft (90 m) across and can hold up to 13,000 people.
