Clients and Testimonials

“Whenever I see our magnificent balloon aloft, I think two things: first, that the words Fortnum & Mason look even more wonderful cruising at an altitude of a few thousand feet, and second, that we owe a great deal to Exclusive Ballooning for our balloon being in such superb shape. It’s a pleasure to work with them.”

Ewan Venters, Fortnum and Mason

“We’re in great hands with the largest balloon company in the world. It’s going to be a terrific promotional piece for our business, and as you can see our customers and colleagues all love it.”

Barclays – Deanna Oppenheimer, CEO

“I am immensely grateful to you for putting together this very inspired and high profile event for the Appeal. Not only has your flair raised our profile in an unmatchable (!) way, but it will also contribute a very valuable sum in a difficult fundraising environment.”

The Rt. Hon. Former Lord Mayor of London Lord Mountevans

“If there’s anything you need to do balloon wise, look no further than Exlcusive Ballooning. They are the best…”

Dom Joly

“Yesterday’s media coverage combined gave us exposure to nearly four million people – excluding the many people who saw us from the ground! A conservative estimate of what similar exposure of this kind would have cost us of we had to pay these media companies (online only) would be in the region of £80,000 – although of course the BBC coverage cannot be paid for and so is even more valuable.”

Head of Communications – Keltbray

“The muscial Avenue Q is all about people dreaming about going up in the world – so what better opportunity for our super talented cast to climb aboard this beautiful balloon to celebrate our third year of being on top of the world and still London’s most outrageously funny, cheeky and original musical.”

Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Avenue Q – The Musical

“We commissioned two hot air balloons with Exclusive ballooning for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. They were so effective we continue to use them at corporate events around the UK; the team from Exclusive Ballooning are incredibly professional and know hoe to extract every ounce of media attention from every event.”

Betfair

“We’re thrilled with the way the balloon has turned out. I didn’t think it would be possible to replicate a trophy as unique as the Scottish Cup, but the designers have done a magnificent job.”

Head of Sponsorship, William Hill

“We had never considered sponsoring a balloon until we were approached by Exclusive Ballooning (EB) and have never regretted the decision to do so. It has given us significant benefits in terms of regional branding for recruitment and community engagement, and the EB team are always full of novel ideas to further increase our exposure.”

Head of Communications – Renishaw Plc

“Exclusive Ballooning’s idea of digitally printing the Sloggi campaign onto balloons had never been done before. The project has been running for five years and we have had six balloons for both Sloggi and Triumph brands which have visited over 20 countries across four continents. Professional, friendly and expert pilots, Exclusive Ballooning also instinctively know where to find the press angle from any situation which has helped gained significant media coverage from the project. Every question is answered with the words Sloggi, Sloggi, Sloggi…”

Senior Head of Marketing & Communications Global Western Fit Services, Triumph International

“The team went out of their way to help us in our coverage of the ballooning event at Pidley last September, inflating balloons and laying out equipment purely for the benefit of the cameras as well as giving us a series of live and entertaining interviews with the pilot and back-up team alike. It was a great pleasure working with them.”

Nick Higham – BBC

“I can attest that Exclusive Ballooning and chief pilot Andrew Holly have a very strong work ethic. They presented themselves to be extremely safety conscious and were very compliant in anything asked of them. I very much enjoyed working with them as they were professional and followed all of the city’s directions and never resisted in any request.”

FDNY Chief Inspector, New York City

“Although a hot air balloon had never been inflated here, we gave it a great deal of consideration in a relatively short time span for two reasons: Exclusive Ballooning’s excellent track record and their high caliber clients. The logistics team was as interested in working within BPCA’s requirements as it was advancing the client’s objective; they willingly worked with our Director of Horticulture to make every effort to prevent soil damage and we’re pleased to say that all of our conditions were fulfilled – so much so that if we didn’t capture the event with pictures, you would never have known the balloons were there as the lawn was instantly returned to full public use. It was an absolute pleasure working with you.”

Former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Roger Gifford

“The 2015 Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta was an amazing success promoting the City of London and hot air ballooning in a very positive light, whilst raising almost £80,000 for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.”

Former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Alan Yarrow

“You negotiated permissions to take a balloon under Tower Bridge for Walt Disney. Our bridge is iconic, you were trusted to do the job – and you carried it out brilliantly.”
