San Antonio's new Convention Center now open!


We are really happy to see the new Convention Center in downtown San Antonio is finally open for business — and boy, is it nice!

Clients have used All Things Balloon to provide balloon arches, balloon columns, Helium balloon clusters and custom-built balloon sculptures for a variety of conferences, conventions and trade shows held at the Convention Center. We just need your requirements, and we can have your balloon decor delivered and setup for you.

San Antonio is a fantastic place for a convention – lots of great restraunts, plenty of night life, and hundreds of things to see in the local area. And if you need balloon decorations for your event here in San Antonio, please consider All Things Balloon!
