IMTS - The International Manufacturing Technology Show 2012 Balloon Schedule Set

June 15, 2012 - McLean, Vir. … Show management for IMTS – The International Manufacturing Technology Show 2012 has announced the festival schedule for the hallmark IMTS hot air balloon.

The balloon, which made its inaugural flight in 2004, has achieved almost iconic mascot status. “The IMTS balloon is an important visual object that supports our brand, big enough to be seen from a distance, and interesting enough to draw people closer,” said Peter Eelman, IMTS Vice President – Exhibition and Communications. “As people arrive at the South Building,

long-time IMTS visitors see the balloon outside Chicago’s McCormick Place say, ‘It's IMTS time!’For new visitors it's a visually striking and unexpected image.”

Leading up to and after IMTS 2012, which will be held Sept. 10-15 in Chicago, the balloon can be seen at:
