Owning a company that has passion for community causes, has helped grow our company globally.

The reason EXHIB-IT! sponsors a balloon is that EXHIB-IT! is a national company that believes in participating in national and global events. The Balloon Fiesta is one of the largest balloon events in the world. According to DJ Heckes, “Flying the box winds in New Mexico is what I love most about living and owning a business in Albuquerque, NM. Navigational flying truly tests my ability to know and understand how to maneuver a balloon to the landing spot you select when up in the air.”

EXHIB-IT!’s banner flew high in the sky and received lots of promotion throughout the10 day event. Having a crew that is experienced makes piloting much easier especially as with Albuquerque’s growing population, there are less landing locations throughout the city.

“The reason we sponsor a balloon is to show that EXHIB-IT! cares about its community. This is a great way a local business makes an impact on a national and global level.” DJ Heckes, the owner and CEO of EXHIB-IT! has flown in the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta for over 15 years and thanks to her sponsored balloon and Pilot Jon Peterson, she is able to continue her passion for flying as a secondary pilot each year.

EXHIB-IT! also believes in giving back. On Tuesday, October 8th Earth, Wind & Fire II balloon along with Pilots and crew members went to Atrisco Elementary School in Albuquerque to demonstrate a static display of the balloon. This gave over 380 children an opportunity to see a balloon in person,” and get in the basket and learn about ballooning. Teaching children about ballooning is a passion for both Pilots Jon Peterson and DJ Heckes and their experienced crew members.

“Owning a company that has passion for community causes, has helped grow our company globally.” -said Heckes. EXHIB-IT! is on a growth trend and knows how to help businesses by putting their brand to work for them through design and print, marketing consultation, and its passion for their customers to “experience the difference” in working with their company.
