The meeco Group participated last weekend (23rd – 25th September 2011) in the famous Gladbeck balloon festival in Germany, together with 10 gas ballooons and over 20 hot-air ones. The meeco Group’s “SunCarrier” balloon lifted up from the number 1 gas balloon launch field of the world which has about 100 gas balloon launches per year.
Thomas Beindorf, Director of Operations and Technics at meeco AG and pilot of the “SunCarrier” hot-air balloon summarizes the event as impressively well organized and especially points out the great amount of people, visiting the festival. „The festival has been a great success for all gas balloon and hot-air balloon devotees, other interested people and for the meeco Group also. We gathered a lot attention by participating with our balloon.”
