X-GLOO Event-Tent at the ISPO ON SNOW DEMO

Inflatable tents are attractive tools for road shows and promotional events. As an international sport business network, the ISPO set up the latest variation in the event equipment arena at their first test event on the Hintertuxer Glacier: two flexible Event-Igloos from skywalk offered over 40m² of protection from the elements. The X-GLOO Event Tents are sporty and innovative in design and functionality and fit perfectly into the trendy sports branch. The remarkable aerodynamic optics of the all-purpose X-GLOO are a convincing alternative to conventional foldable tents.

“It is important, especially outdoors, that the tent can be set up easily and without requiring a lot of equipment”, according to Everhard Uphoff, Head of Sales and Marketing at X-GLOO. “Our Event-Igloo is light, can be set up in a flash, is simple to handle, stable and safe!” It can be set up by 1 person in only 10 minutes – lay it out – inflate with air – ready. Furthermore, the robust X-GLOO can be used on any surface: sand, water, snow or asphalt – all no problem thanks to the Ballast System. This promotional tent can withstand wind speeds up to 60 km/h.

“We were impressed by the simple set-up and the uncomplicated stabilisation with the Ballast System”, commented Maximilian Nortz of the Messe München. “What”s more, the X-GLOO is an incredible eye-catcher with our colors and corporate logo!” In this way, the X-GLOO advances from pure tent to presentation platform, an image-medium par excellance. As our clients know and have come to appreciate, there are practically no limits when it comes to the creative design that the X-GLOO concept offers. The Entrance-, Window- and Side Walls can be quickly closed to keep the wind and cold outside. The X-GLOOs for the ISPO ON SNOW were equipped with all 3 Wall variations, a perfect match for any weather.

ISPO used the multipurpose X-GLOO lightweight tent as a starting point for registration, product testing as well as for a chill-out lounge on the Hintertuxer Glacier. The X-RELAX seating from X-GLOO also offered a relaxing alternative. This accessory meets the same high material-, function- and design standards as the tent and can also be individually designed according to the wishes of the client.

The X-GLOO is available in three sizes: 4×4, 5×5 and 6×6 meters, whereby the last size no longer fits into any backpack, but can easily be transported on a trolley and fits into any small car with a similar format to an Audi Avant. Constructed from patented ripstop nylon, the tent is water-repellent, UV-resistant and fulfills the CPAI-84 fire protection norm. The X-GLOO Tent is also available in the color-bound X-Act variation, consisting of a black Matrix with silver Side Wall Elements, and in the X-Pert variation, available in a large variety of color combinations. The Outer Walls of the X-Pert can be individually designed, from the artwork to logo application, according to the respective corporate design guidelines.
