L3637-McWrap-Inflatable-thumb

Inflatable Product Replica Pumps Up the Dalton Agency's Food Marketing Strategy

What's 20 feet tall, weighs 80 pounds and makes your mouth water? An inflatable product replica of McDonald's new McWrap. In a sea of vans, tents and people, the Dalton Agency needed a clever way to capture attention from far and wide for its client (McDonald's) at events. The agency decided on an inflatable product replica of McDonald's new McWrap because the shape, size and color gave the restaurant a competitive edge in a crowd.

 

L3706-MIMMI-Inflatable-thumb

MIMMI Inflatable Art Displays the Pulse of Minneapolis in a Cloud

To describe it, you might think someone was talking about a 1970s mood ring.  While MIMMI is, in fact, circular and does detect moods, it is certainly more contemporary than any ring ever hoped to be.

 

L3660-SavageRace-Inflatable-thumb

Inflatable Archways Give Savage Race that "Big Event" Feel

If being pushed to your absolute physical limits is your idea of fun, a Savage Race will be right up your alley. Just imagine conquering an intense five- to six-mile run with 25 world-class obstacles, mud, fire, and barbed wire. It's not for the faint of heart, that's for sure.

 

L3704-Elephant-Inflatable-thumbGiant, Inflatable Wildlife Replicas Introduce Biometrics to Kids

Did you know elephant trunks inspired the creation of certain manufacturing robots because of their range of motion? Or that wind turbines are becoming more efficient at harnessing air, thanks to the bumpy shape of humpback whales?

 

L3581-DivaDash-Inflatable-thumb

SKA Events Uses Custom Inflatables to Make Divas Happy

SKA Events (an event production company) needed a portable shelter to serve as a recognizable structure at the SHAPE Diva Dash 5K nationwide series of obstacle races. Their criteria included being large enough to house sponsor displays, prize giveaways and a lounge area. SKA Events also wanted flexibility with the use of the shelter since each market for the Diva Dash was unique.

 

L3684-AveraArch-Inflatable-thumb

Inflatable Arch Helps Avera McKennan Foundation Top $3 Million for Breast Cancer Research

For 25 years, the Avera McKennan Foundation has raised money to help the Avera McKennan Hospital fight breast cancer. On May 11, 2013, they celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Avera Race Against Breast Cancer. But that's not all.

 

L3735-PeachTree-Logo-Inflatable-thumb

Peach Tree Healthcare Attracts Attention with a Giant Logo

With a name like Peach Tree, you almost have to use a peach as your logo. Doing the expected, however, doesn't always get you the attention you want. So, Peach Tree Healthcare decided to kick their brand up a notch by turning their namesake into a giant logo.

 

L3692-MarchDimes-Inflatable-thumb

March of Dimes Adds Inflatable Arch to its "March for Babies" Races

Saving babies' lives is what the March of Dimes is all about. For decades, it has worked to prevent birth defects, premature births and infant mortality through research, community service, education and events like the "March for Babies" races.

inflatable-colon-alaska-CDC-approvedCorrection from Issue 45: In the spring issue of Landmarketing, we mistakenly reported that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) had "approved" inflatable colons. While the new study (conducted by ANTHC and published by the CDC) did show that giant inflatable colons were effective for cancer prevention, inflatables were not specifically endorsed by the CDC.

 

"Landmark worked with us to make sure our client was satisfied with the product. They provided great customer service and got us answers when we needed them."

- April Lo, SKA Events

"This year’s event was the highest attended in some time, and the [inflatable] astronaut, front and center on our Portico, was a great visible draw from all over the area."

- Dennis Bateman, Carnegie Science Center
