Why Choose an X-GLOO Event Tent?

Inflatable event tents are fast becoming a go-to outdoor display solution for lots of exhibitors around the world, but in a market saturated with choice, why should you choose the X-Gloo?

Price is often the make or break factor when it comes to businesses investing in a display – and because the X-Gloo isn’t the cheapest option, it often gets ruled out before it’s had a chance to showcase its potential.

Looking beyond cost, here are five reasons why you should choose the X-GLOO inflatable event tent as your next outdoor display:

The original inflatable event tent

That’s right; the XGLOO is the original of all the inflatable event tents. It’s been around much longer than most of its competitors and is a pioneering brand in terms of event tent design and technology.

For 12 years, X-GLOO has dominated the outdoor exhibition market; so much so that it has inspired countless copycats.

All of the igloo-shaped inflatable tents you see today took their inspiration from the X-GLOO. That being said, none of them have quite managed to replicate the style or functionality of the X-Gloo.

For the best and most reliable results, always stick to the original.

Completely customisable

Other inflatable event tents might let you add a branded canopy or some printed walls, but the X-GLOO is the only one to provide a customised frame.

You don’t need to stick to a plain tent matrix and legs; with the X-Gloo, you can brand it all.

Fits into a backpack

Say goodbye to bad backs, achy arms and multiple trips back to the car when setting up for an exhibition when you purchase an XGLOO.

The largest size XGLOO is 8m x 8m, but even with a whopping 64 sq/m of space, the large format outdoor display can still fit into a backpack.

Once deflated, each leg on the frame can be rolled up the centre and slotted into the provided rucksack with ease.

German engineering

If there’s one thing you can rely on, it’s German engineering. From cars to event tents, the German’s do it best.

The X-Gloo was never designed as an exhibition solution – it was intended to be a training, storage and shelter area for people at paragliding and kitesurfing events.

Sure enough, the engineers quickly realised how effective the X-Gloo could be in corporate marketing and they took it into the mainstream.

From there on it has gone from strength to strength, but it has never lost its roots.

That original engineering has made the X-Gloo one of the sturdiest and most agile inflatable display solutions in the corporate event word.

Built to last a lifetime

Stemming from the engineering precision that went into designing the tent, the X-Gloo was never intended to be a single-use display.

This is a tent that is built to last.

Premium materials are sourced. Every tent is handmade to order. No corners are cut.

It is this attention to detail that bumps up the price, but it is also this attention to detail that guarantees the X-Gloo will last longer than any other inflatable event tent available.

When buying an XGLOO, rest assured that you’re buying a display that will last a lifetime.

Our 5 Favourite XGLOO Designs

We don’t think it’s possible to make an X GLOO inflatable event tent look bad. The matrix itself is so sleek and modern – no matter what graphic design you go for it will always look good.

We’ve handpicked our five favourite XGLOO tent designs. Each one offers something different and takes a unique approach to adapting corporate branding onto a giant inflatable advertising structure.

1. Silent Pool Gin

X-GLOO Inflatable Event Tents For Silent Pool Gin

What we like about this graphic design is the vivid colour scheme. The turquoise blue background contrasts against the gentle amber pattern overlay.

Normally, these two shades might clash – but given the gentleness and subtlety of the print, this XGLOO works a treat.

2. Cannondale

Cannondale’s X-GLOO design has been carefully thought out. From a distance, it seems rather simple; a plain black tent with a simple logo on the roof canopy banner.

However, this XGLOO has been carefully designed to contrast against the bright bicycles and fluorescent promotional flags. In addition, the window wall at the back of the tent provides some much needed light in an otherwise dark meeting area.

3. Jaguar

When you’re a brand as big as Jaguar, you don’t need fancy designs and garish branding.

For their XGLOO, Jaguar opted for a black and white theme which works superbly alongside the red car underneath. Simple designs like this keep the focus on what matters most.

4. My Gene Machine

To some people, step and repeat patterns seem like a graphic design cop out. They’re simple and not challenging to create; but despite this, they are perhaps the most effective design of all.

Step and repeat patterns take full advantage of available graphic space and often look elegant and stylish – just like the one above.

5. Sell My Livestock

Sell My Livestock have added a dynamic edge to their otherwise plain XGLOO display by incorporating bright pops of colour on the roof canopy and banner.

Not only does this break up the black matrix, it also ties in to the display stand underneath the tent for a uniform and consistent exhibition stand.

How to Get the Most out of Your X GLOO Inflatable Event Tent

The X-GLOO Inflatable Event Tent is one of the most versatile inflatable advertising structures in the world. The basic tent matrix itself is incredibly enduring and flexible, making it perfect for creating an impact at your next event.

Despite X GLOO’s impressive size and unrivalled marketing success, there are a few ways you can customise your tent to really make a statement.


Branded XGLOO Inflatable Event Tent

The X-GLOO inflatable marquee is available branded or unbranded. If you really want to stand out amongst the crowd, we recommend investing in a branded tent matrix. Whether it’s matching a block colour to your company branding or designing unique artwork to wrap around the roof and the matrix; customising the structure of the X GLOO is a fool-proof way to ensure that your exhibition stand is the one that people notice first.


X-GLOO Event Tent Standard Walls
X-GLOO Event Tent Standard Walls

To seclude your exhibition stand and further set it apart from your competitors, add some walls. Not only do the walls provide extra marketing space for extended branding, but they are available in a wide range of variations too.

The entrance wall is available for X-GLOO tents sized 4×4 and above and allows you to secure off your stand when necessary thanks to the zip down the centre of the wall. This allows you to secure you tent overnight for events that span several days.

Like all walls, the entrance wall attaches to the tent with strong zips and is further anchored down by webbing loops which are neatly concealed for a cleaner appearance.

Each type of wall can be customised with your artwork or, alternatively, you can choose one of seven plain colours for the wall.

In addition, each wall is reversible.

We offer full side walls which help to shelter the inside of the tent from the weather, whilst providing an enhanced blank canvas for your graphic design.

The window wall is a great option if you still want to see what’s going on outside the tent, but you also want some extra branding. The lower half of the wall can be manufactured with your custom graphic design, whilst the top half is PU coated nylon that is equally as weatherproof and fire retardant as the lower half of the wall and the X-GLOO tent matrix.

The final type of wall we supply is a double-sided standard wall which enables you to have your branding on display on both sides of the tent.

Linking Tunnels

For a truly bespoke exhibition stand, consider linking multiple X GLOO inflatable exhibition tents together with a linking tunnel.

Like the walls, the linking tunnel is available for you to completely customise or in seven plain colours.

The tunnel is easily attached to the tents and allows you to link two or more X-GLOO’s together to create a larger display stand.

Roof Canopy

For X GLOO’s sized 4×4, 5×5 and 6×6, consider adding a roof canopy. The roof canopy can be custom printed or purchased in one of seven plain colours.

The benefit of adding a canopy is that not only does it extend your marketing space by 300%, but it also identifies the entrance to the tent.

Keeping your display stand organised and controlling footfall is essential for having a successful exhibition; and the roof canopy is a simple way to direct visitors and keep yourself organised.

The 4×4 X GLOO comes with a plain banner underneath the canopy as standard, but the 5×5 and 6×6 provide you with the opportunity to add your logo or branding on the canopy banner.


LED Lighting Kit for X GLOO

Event and exhibition halls can often be dim, and if you’re exhibiting outside, there’s no guarantee that the lighting will be any better.

By adding a light mount the inside your X GLOO, you can illuminate your exhibition stand and create an enticing glow that will you set apart from your competitors.

The light effortlessly attaches to the centre of the roof to provide an even distribution of light that will enhance your display.

You can choose from seven different mount colours to ensure that your light will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your tent, allowing you to maintain uniformity and consistency throughout your exhibition display stand.

X-Gloo: The Brilliant Backpack-Bound Inflatable Event Tent

Tradeshow halls are heaving with people. Everywhere, exhibitors can be seen rushing to and fro, trying to desperately attach magnetic strips to stands and ensure that graphics are hung properly.

With an XGLOO inflatable event tent, you can walk past all the hustle and bustle to your allotted space, simply take off your X-Gloo backpack and begin your set up.

Within minutes the inflatable event tent can be fully inflated, guaranteeing all of the attention will be on you and your brand. You’re ready to go in a fraction of the time of your competitors.

People won’t just be looking because you’ve set up in minimal time; they’ll be looking because of the incredible event tent that has emerged out of nowhere.

“This is the well known effect that occurs among onlookers whenever an X-Gloo is set up,” says Director of Marketing at X-Gloo, Everhard Uphoff.

The award winning X-Gloo inflatable event tent isn’t just a looker, though. Made from quality materials, it is fire resistant, water proof and stable in high winds. In factm the X-Gloo can be relied upon in almost all weather conditions.

The X-Gloo is also completely customisable and brand-ready. “The outer walls can be designed according to the wishes of the client,” explains Uphoff. “From the lettering, all the way to almost any colour combination. High resolution digital printing, screen printing or sewn applications make practically anything possible.”

The X-Gloo inflatable event tent has been designed as a high-end tent that can be assembled for use within minutes. From the zippers to the side walls, everything has been designed with the users’ end experience in mind.

“It is our mission to make using the tent as pleasant as possible,” says Uphoff. “Individual client solutions are of the utmost important.”

X-Gloo tents are available in sizes ranging from 3×3 to 8×8 square metres – showcasing the extensive range of variability that’s available to the customer.

Customers can customise their tents with extra canopies, tunnels, lights, tables, walls and doors. Each X-Gloo event tent is unique, but what they all have in common  is the fact that at any event – indoor or outdoor – the X-Gloo will leave the competition in the dust.

Why XGLOO is Perfect for Festivals

Festivals provide a prime opportunity for brands to raise their profile whilst making a little profit at the same time thanks to the never-ending stream of people coming through the gates.

Outdoor events are a magnet for consumers with money to spend, and festivals are full to the brim of people with disposable income.

Given how many brands there are at festivals, making sure yours is the one people notice is essential.

We think the bigger the better, and that’s why in a world where catching attention is the aim of the game, the XGLOO is the only way to go.

The large format size ensures that whatever you’re using your inflatable X GLOO for, it will be fit for purpose.

Whether you’re using it as a pop up shop to sell sun screen or as an undercover bar for people to grab a light refreshment; the XGLOO is up to the job. Available in sizes ranging from 3m x 3m all the way to 8m x 8m, no matter the size of your pitch, there’s always room for an X GLOO.

Suitable for all types of terrains and fully waterproof and windproof, the XGLOO won’t let you down.

You can take it to the muddy fields of wet Glastonbury or all the way to the warm grass of Coachella; wherever you go, it’s ready for the task ahead.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of the X GLOO is that it offers unlimited branding potential.

The entire surface is customisable, allowing you maximum graphic design freedom to promote your brand to the fullest.
