NABAS, The Balloon and Party Professionals Association was set up 36 years ago by the leading manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and decorators and is the only registered trade association for the balloon and party industry in the UK, representing balloon & event decorators, retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers.
Its members also include suppliers of balloon & party related services such as face painting, event accessories, inflators and balloon gas. The association is a not for profit organisation run by members, for members.
NABAS provides unrivalled support and services. The association acts as the voice of the balloon industry, providing a comprehensive source of information, and education for all industry concerns. Key objectives include supporting quality training, promoting good environmental practices for balloon releases and keeping members up to date with industry developments and trends.
NABAS membership provides many benefits including ongoing business support, supplier discounts, training, insurance, regional ambassadors, directory listing skills hub and quarterly magazine.
The strength of the NABAS policy is not simply the provision of a comprehensive liability insurance solution for members, it is the pedigree of the insurer Hiscox, an A-Rated Insurer established for over 100 years.
NABAS is an independent Trade Association focused on giving YOU the best of everything available. Our courses are developed to ensure you gain the very most out of your day and are all quality checked and assessed.
