The XGLOO vs A Branded Gazebo

The XGLOO inflatable event tent might seem like a fancier version of a branded gazebo; and whilst the XGLOO and an outdoor gazebo both serve the same purpose – they are in fact two very different things.

Being so lightweight, the XGLOO can be transported between events and stored away much easier than a gazebo. This makes the XGLOO a much better option for businesses who frequently attend trade shows. 

Manufacturing:
Branded gazebos sold in the UK are usually made in the UK and therefore have a relatively short lead time.

Durability:
Branded gazebos haven’t been majorly revamped or changed since they first entered the UK exhibition market – despite advances in technology and manufacturing. The thin metal frame on a gazebo makes it more susceptible to being blown away by winds any stronger than 18mph. This means there is a strong chance that unless it’s the height of summer, your gazebo won’t hold up at an outdoor event.

The XGLOO has a unique and highly durable anchoring system that allows it to withstand winds up to 37mph; making it more suited to events all year round.

Branded gazebos aren’t made for long term use, but the XGLOO is. You can take your XGLOO with you anywhere – from mountain peaks to desert islands. The same can’t be said for a flimsy gazebo.

Modular:
Gazebo’s can’t be added to or modified, meaning what you see is what you get.

The X GLOO inflatable advertising structure has been engineered with adaptability in mind. The design is modular which means you can link multiple tents together effortlessly – allowing you to grow your display in line with your brand.

Overall, branded gazebos are great for a handful of uses in pleasant weather, but if you’re looking for a more permanent solution that will last you a lifetime, the XGLOO is worth the investment.

Using an X GLOO Inflatable Tent to Exhibit at a Sporting Event

Using XGLOO Whilst Exhibiting at a Sporting Event

Sporting events are one of the most lucrative types of exhibitions, making them a magnet for all types of businesses with a product or a service to offer the industry.

With steady footfalls and the potential to increase brand awareness immeasurably, attending a sporting event is a sure-fire way to create leads and boost revenue.

Like with any type of event or exhibition, perfecting your promotional display stand is vital if you are going to be in with a chance of attracting the attention and potentially the investment of the many visitors in attendance.

Sports events typically come with the luxury of larger exhibition spaces for exhibitors, meaning you have complete flexibility with the layout and the impact of your display stand.

Car and Automotive Events

One of the most popular types of sports event revolves around cars and automobiles. With a varying terrain and often the need to display large vehicles, car events can seem somewhat tricky to exhibit at.

The X GLOO inflatable event tent is ideal for this type of exhibition because of its large format size.

Available in 3m x 3m, 4m x 4m, 5m x 5m, 6m x 6m and 8m x 8m, the interior of the XGLOO can display any sized automobile with space to spare.

Alternatively, many businesses opt to showcase vehicles outside of the tent and use the inside of the X GLOO as a meeting area to discuss and liaise with potential clients.

The enlarged size of the XGLOO allows for unlimited branding potential and the certainty that your display stand is the one that people will notice first.

Cycling Events

Whether you’re exhibiting in the heat at the finale of the Tour De France or if you’re setting up shop in the rainy Yorkshire Dales, the X GLOO can adjust to all types of climates.

The adaptable anchoring system and hardwearing design means that the X GLOO will remain secure in all four corners of the globe; something that is essential for a sport as diverse as cycling.

Like with automotive events, the X GLOO is ideal for housing different products inside or acting as a meeting area with the bicycles parked outside.

By adding a branded roof canopy, you are guaranteed to peak the interest of passers by and propel yourself to first place as the most successful exhibitor.

Snow Sports

The XGLOO is one of the few inflatable advertising structures that can confidently withstand sub-zero temperatures and the icy winds that come with it.

Whether you’re promoting a new range of skis or showcasing your bestselling thermal wear, the X GLOO is the only outdoor exhibition solution for the job.

Hospitality

No sporting event would be complete without an area for emergency services and first aiders. The XGLOO is perfect for acting as a temporary area for healthcare professionals to be easily accessible to those in need whilst storing essential first aid supplies.

In a likely manner, an area for athletes to go in and get a light refreshment is a necessity for sports events. By adding sofas or tables and chairs and maybe even a fridge or a mini bar you can create a welcoming and relaxing area for sports people to gather and take a well-earned rest after their event.

Whether you’re looking for an outdoor exhibition solution to take to a kitesurfing event or if you need something a little sturdier for a snowboarding meet, the X GLOO inflatable event tent is up to the job.

If you’re interested in investing in an X GLOO display for your next sporting event, contact us or call 01733 511030 to find out more.

Where Can I Use My X GLOO?

It’s no secret that the X GLOO Inflatable Event Tent is a global icon when it comes to durability and value for money; but have you ever wondered exactly what makes it so hardwearing and resilient?

It’s all down to ingenious engineering by the developers over at Skywalk – XGLOO’s parent company.

The team tested and refined the design of X GLOO using their knowledge of the paragliding and kitesurfing industry to create the world’s first fully weatherproof inflatable advertising structure.

Their continual development finally produced a tent that was ready for launch all over the world. What made X GLOO so popular was the fact it could indeed be used all over the world.

Don’t believe us? Look at the list below detailing where you can use your X GLOO inflatable tent:

Outdoors

X-GLOO Inflatable Event Tents

Designed originally as an outdoor storage solution for paragliding and kitesurfing events, X GLOO was engineered with outdoor events in mind.

The unique block building system and nylon/polyester fabric blend are what makes X GLOO so durable.

With a wide range of anchoring solutions available, you can use X GLOO on almost any outdoor terrain.

Whether you’re exhibiting on a concrete slab in the hustle and bustle of a city or if you’ve got a large pitch on a grassy field, your X GLOO can be securely tied down with the appropriate anchoring system to remain stable and in place.

You can even take your X GLOO to the highest snowy peaks of Mount Everest or to the deepest depths of the Sahara Desert if that’s where your business is headed.

The XGLOO is expertly designed to stand tall on all terrains regardless of where in the world you are.

Indoors

X-GLOO Corporate Event Tents

Just because the X GLOO was designed with the great outdoors in mind doesn’t mean that you can’t use it indoors too.

Use a water ballast or a tube ballast to keep your inflatable structure anchored down on indoor flooring; whether that’s hardwood laminate or soft, fluffy carpet.

Weather

X-GLOO 3x3 Event Tent With Side Walls

The wide range of terrains that the XGLOO display tent can be used on is a good indication of the weather it can withstand, but here’s a summary just in case:

The nylon/polyester blend fabric acts as a water repellent which makes X GLOO fully waterproof; even in the heaviest of rain.

The unique fabric and double-sealed seams also make X GLOO a good solution for exhibiting in snowy and icy conditions without incurring any damage.

The material used on X GLOO exhibition tents is UV resistant, so in the same way it can withstand sub-zero temperatures, the X GLOO can also square up to blistering heat in the hottest habitable climates.

To round it all off, your XGLOO will stand strong against gale force winds up to 60km/ph.

Whatever nature throws at you, the XGLOO inflatable advertising structure can match it.

Events

Customised X-GLOO Inflatable Dome Tent

Now you know what types of terrain and weather your XGLOO can handle, it’s time to think about what types of events it might be suitable for. The short answer is everything (space permitting), but here are a few examples anyway: product launches, trade shows, business expos, festivals, fairs, sporting events, pop up shops, conventions…the list goes on and on!

For a marketing solution that will enhance your brand awareness, increase your industry influence and look good whilst doing do, invest in an X GLOO event tent. Not only will XGLOO market your business to a first-class quality; it will also provide practical shelter against adverse weather conditions whilst being equipped for a lifetime of use.

What Makes the X-GLOO a Premium Exhibition Display Solution?

The X-Gloo event tent is frequently referred to as the premium exhibition and display inflatable, but what exactly makes it so premium?

Curved Roof
The key to making any product the luxury option is space. The XGLOO has a curved, fabric roof. The rounded shape gives way to a high ceiling which, in turn, gives the illusion of more space (although that’s not so much an illusion as it is a reality given that the XGLOO comes in sizes up to 8m x 8m).

Watertight
Whilst other inflatable event tents claim to be fully weatherproof, they weren’t designed in the way the XGLOO was. The XGLOO was intended to be a sports storage and congregation area – not an exhibition tent – and so the materials used on the display were suited to such. The benefit of that is a completely waterproof event tent thanks to the built-in zipper gutters, sealed seams and PU fabric coating.

Fire Retardant
In the same way the Xgloo is waterproof, it is fire resistant. The DIN 4102-1 and CPAI 84 safety ratings mean the XGLOO is certified UV resistant, flame retardant and suitable for outdoor use.

Portable
Other tents on the market are bulky and heavy, but not the XGLOO. The entire tent can fit into the specially designed backpack. There’s something about not having to lug a giant inflatable across an exhibition hall whilst incurring arm and backache that just feels premium.

Modular
No other inflatable event tent is modular; automatically making the XGLOO the number one choice. The refined zipper system allows you to easily attach and remove additional walls, canopies and linking tunnels to create a bespoke display solution tailored specifically to your brand and exhibition space.

Valves
The technology and innovation that has gone into developing the valves on the XGLOO are what makes it a cut above the rest. The red overpressure valves automatically open when the air bladders inside the legs are full, therefore easing the pressure on the user to know when to stop applying air. Not only this, the XGLOO has a sealed air system which eliminates the need for constant airflow throughout the duration of your event.

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.

Branding

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.

Walls

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.

Lighting

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.

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.

Book Your X GLOO Inflatable Event Tent Check-Up

The exhibition season can be a trying time for businesses and their staff, but it also puts a lot of stress on your display equipment. Despite the immense durability of the X GLOO inflatable event tent, it too occasionally needs some TLC.

Now the exhibition season for 2018 has drawn to an end, it’s time to think about checking your X-GLOO tent in for its annual MOT.

Our tent check includes a full inspection of your X-GLOO and a detailed report on its condition.

Why is it important?

The X-GLOO event tent is a premium product in the world of outdoor exhibiting and the condition of your tent when exhibiting needs to reflect this.

The maintenance of your X-GLOO is essential to keep it working perfectly, looking fresh and providing you with maximum brand exposure that will see you get a return on your investment.

The working parts of your X-GLOO don’t require much maintenance, but we still advise an annual check just to make sure.

What is included?

  • We test each valve individually to ensure proper working order. If just one valve is not functioning correctly, the whole inflatable structure can be compromised. It is important to make sure the valves are properly cleaned and replaced if required.
  • We test each internal bladder within the X-GLOO legs to ensure they are airtight and free of punctures. The bladders on the X-GLOO are comprised of four individual components. This allows you to replace or repair one part at a time if required.
  • All seams on the X-GLOO event tent are checked and tested for any defects. The stitched seams are extremely durable and strong; however, damage may still occur which is why we check them.
  • We ensure all fabric on the X-GLOO is in good condition with no tears or obvious problems.
  • The YKK zips are strong and have been tested to withstand high winds and pressure; however, should any issues arise with the zips on the X-GLOO, we will notify you immediately.

We ensure all wearing parts on the X-GLOO inflatable event tent are fully checked by experts to guarantee a professional opinion on the condition of the event tent.

After a full inspection, we will provide you with documentation of your X GLOO’s condition and offer you the chance to have any necessary repairs carried out.

Don’t wait for next season to be breathing down your neck – contact us or call us on 01733 511030 to book your seasonal tent check.

*Shipping costs and costs of any necessary repairs will apply. No repairs will be carried out until we have confirmation and payment from the customer.
