Pre-Convention Activities March 8 and 9, 2024
Lombard , Illinois, USA

We are mere months away from the 10th and certainly largest installment of FLOAT ever, and we want YOU to join us! With over 700 people already registered and more signing up every day, the 2024 edition of FLOAT is sure to be one for the record books.

Why should you come to FLOAT? Well, how does this sound?

  • More benefits included FREE with your registration than ever before!
  • New academic opportunities, again, FREE with your registration
  • ELEVEN (11) balloon manufacturers, our biggest turnout ever!
  • More vendors and sponsors than any previous convention
  • LOTS of surprises we can’t share here…or else they wouldn’t be surprises!
  • All at a reasonably low price that you cannot ignore!

So…take a few moments to browse the site. We’re pretty sure that it won’t take long before you realize you too need to explore the FLOATiverse…


An event like FLOAT could not be possible without the generous assistance of our fabulous sponsors, whether it’s in the form of product, equipment or financial support. Please take a moment to show them YOUR support by visiting their websites and consider them when planning your future business purchases.
