In Bulgaria, at the beginning of the New Millennium, for International Jazz Festival in Bansko, and for he very first time, Ivan Kristoff started organizing high profile special events with hot air balloons, in order to boost the Grand Opening effect, where he invites TV Hosts, reporters, embedded extreme journalists and aerial photographers to showcase in real time the visual high perspective of the main flagship events. He already mapped iconic places with such media frenzy, where, at the heart of Sofia, the Capital of Bulgaria, his vertical unique “trade mark” foe vertical and aerial rope access demo was Inaugurated by Mrs. Yordanka Fandukova, Mayor of Sofia and 7 (seven) TV stations. later, he developed the idea to film the GCF hot air ballon brief experience, which I organized at WEBIT 2018, based on my very successful early morning LIVE reportage of the Bulgarian National TV and promotion of the WEBIT’19, were I organized a LIVE TV broadcast on board of a hot air balloon for NOVA TV (the same TV reporter, Nikolay Vasilkovski, made a special TV reportage for my new NGO investment – the Home-Office of the Rescuer of the Future that has the GCF branded colours on the exterior facade🙂

Start / Kick-off of Innovation in Aviation

So, let’s do Amazing World’s Firsts and Achieve New Heights with the GCF brand and hot air balloon!

Let’s elevate and promote your event to a new level!

Ivan Kristoff idea, as before, is to film a special flight with your GCF balloon and a special message to introduce new initiatives that match the themes of a new event, create an attractive and unique newsworthy digital content, share it with the Speciual Operation Services (S.O.S.) Marketing and PR team, and as a bone fide Global Citizen (Bulgarian and Canadian) and an ex- Refugee Claimant, but officially recognized Toronto’s UNSUNG HEROE, he can create amazing storyteling for this event, as an appreciation for the support of his partners for the one-of-a-kinds NGO’s – Highrise Emergency Aerial Response Team (H.E.A.R.T.) in Canada and Special Operation Services (S.O.S.) in Bulgaria.
