The Balloon Event Symposium

January 11, 2019 - January 13, 2019

$200 – $250
Balloon Event Symposium in Plano, Texas

The Balloon Federation of America presents this first of its kind conference designed to educate balloon event officials and organizers alike on the various aspects of running a safe and successful hot air balloon event.

Or maybe you want to consider adding hot air balloons to your community event for greater exposure. The Balloon Event Symposium will be hosted in Plano, Texas at the Hilton Dallas/Plano Granite Park the weekend of January 11-13, 2019. The Hilton is a 4-star hotel and convention center located a convenient 24-minute drive from either DFW airport and Dallas Love Field. The site was selected for its easily accessible hub airports, warm winter climate and an active local ballooning community.

The Mission of the Symposium is to bring together all parties interested in hot air balloon events including event officials AND organizations who host or may be interested in hosting a balloon event, and pilots interested in learning more about event safety. The Symposium is designed to promote a free exchange of ideas in a social gathering that will feature two distinct but intertwined tracks: Balloon Event Organizers education and Officials training. The BFA publication, Balloon Event Guidelines, will be utilized to provide many of the training opportunities.
