When did X GLOO Launch?

X GLOO is an internationally recognised pioneer of inflatable event tents. Anyone involved in the event and exhibition industry will know the name X GLOO; it seems like it’s been around forever. However, it might come as a surprise to learn that X GLOO is only in its eleventh year of trading, making it a baby when compared to other exhibition solutions.

Despite being in its relative infancy, X GLOO has made waves since its launch back in 2007 and has gone on to become a global leader in the corporate event industry. X GLOO is the original inflatable event tent and its unique design has inspired countless variations by different brands since its release.

X GLOO Inflatable Event Tent

The difference between the X GLOO and other types of inflatable exhibition tents lies in the quality of the material. X GLOO was founded as a branch of Skywalk, a company who specialise in aircraft manufacturing and are world leaders in the paragliding and kitesurfing industry. This prior intelligence meant that the people who worked on X GLOO went into it with exceptional knowledge on the most lightweight, durable and aerodynamic materials that might possibly work for a tent.

It would be fair to say that X GLOO was never intended to be an international brand for events and exhibitions. It was originally designed as a structure to provide shelter, storage and a training area for people at paragliding and kitesurfing events, but when the developers realised how revolutionary it could be in the corporate marketing world, they decided to launch it around the globe.

After a little bit more refining, X GLOO was ready for release and it was an instant hit. People just couldn’t get enough of it. Businesses everywhere wanted an X GLOO inflatable event tent for their next exhibition or event.

German engineering is renowned for being innovative and reliable, and the X GLOO is no different. Hailing from Germany with a team of talented developers behind it, X GLOO was always destined to be a success.

The material is lightweight, assembly is effortless despite the large format size, and the design is one that is both fun and functional. Based on the shape of an igloo, the tent is sturdy yet sleek and provides edge to edge marketing exposure for maximum brand impact. The igloo-inspired shape is where the name X GLOO derives from.

The design was so fresh and new at the time of its launch that X GLOO won the Red Dot Design Award in 2008, just one year after its release.

X GLOO event tents aren’t just nice to look at though. They are also waterproof, UV resistant and can withstand high wind speeds, as well as being fire retardant too. These qualities make this inflatable event tent one of the safest exhibition solutions around.

The rapid growth of X GLOO has led to the brand acquiring 58 distribution partners worldwide; XL Displays being the only UK distributor. Other partners can be found in Japan, Chile, Australia, Finland, Canada and the United States to name a few.

Business on the other side of the pond is going so well that in 2017, X GLOO opened a brand new headquarters for North America based in North Carolina.

If you’re deciding whether or not an X GLOO is good enough for your business, maybe previous clients will help to sway your decision. Coca-Cola, Adidas, Reebok, Jaguar, Red Bull, Nike, Thule, GoPro and Landrover have all invested in X GLOO to promote their world-leading marketing campaigns.
