The first RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon was launched in 1978 at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Since that time, the image has appeared on yard signs, bus benches, billboards, on television, print advertising and many other ways across the globe.
With over 121 Hot Air Balloons in 20 countries RE/MAX has the largest fleet of Hot Air Balloons in the world.
With more than 5,000 appearances across the globe each year, the balloons average 68 hours of flight time each year. The entire fleet combined flies for 8,228 hours annually- the equivalent of 342 days of advertising. There are very few companies that have a corporate symbol that can be seen, heard and touched. The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon symbol is one of the top 10 recognized brand logos in the world!
This is what makes the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon Program so unique. Many offices in the network use the balloon to create publicity and goodwill in the communities where they live and work.
