The World Balloon Convention (WBC) was created in 2010, by the Pioneer Balloon Company (Qualatex). The WBC was created as an educational space for decorators, twisters, party store retailers, and newcomers who want a career in the balloon industry.
There are classes held to teach basic, intermediate, and advanced decorators/twisters fun new techniques and information. To enroll in classes, you must meet the different requirements for each level.
