Acquisition Lifts Balloon Advertising Company to Southeast’s Largest
GAINESVILLE, Ga. — The legions of Godzillas, King-Kongs and giant two-headed aliens just got bigger.
Advertising Innovations, a promotions company specializing in mega-balloon inflatables, has announced its acquisition of Rooftop Balloons Advertising of Marietta, Ga. Together, the two operations pump up in size to become the largest on-site balloon advertising firm in the Southeast and among the top in the United States.
“ You can’t miss seeing our giant balloons — and now, I guess you can say the same goes for our company,” said W. Don Hall, chief executive officer of Jones & Hall Ventures, the parent company for Advertising Innovations.
