The Bright Balloon

May 16, 2023

In this episode I'm chatting with Steven Jones, the Executive Director of FLOAT, a convention that is very near and dear to my heart. That's why I'm so excited to announce a FLOAT registration giveaway!! Listen in to hear all of the details... the winner will be announced June 19!



If you're not familiar with this convention, this interview is going to be a great introduction; and if you're a FLOAT veteran, tune in for some behind the scenes scoops that definitely surprised me.


I really appreciated Steven's honesty about not only running the convention but also his own balloon business, Balloon Designers in the Seattle area, for over 20 years.


We chat about things like:

  • industry changes
  • industry mainstays
  • Balloon Town
  • the development and challenges of FLOAT
  • the uniqueness of FLOAT


Steven even flatters me by recalling my incredible experience of being named the 2019 FLOAT Designer of the Year. We also go on to talk about some of the unique competitions that have taken place at the convention over the years, and what new event is in place for the 2024 convention.

Truly, I think FLOAT is a special convention that you should try to go to if at all possible. Don't forget to enter for your chance at free registration / getting your registration reimbursed!
