About Skyline Promotions

Skyline Promotions WarehouseEstablished in 1988, Skyline Promotions sells, rents, and services eye-catching on-site outdoor advertising and promotional items to clients throughout the country. We are well known for the high quality inflatables which we manufacture entirely out of US materials in our 9000 square foot facility in the heart of Tampa, Florida.

Our reputation has been built on our giant advertising inflatables and air dancers. No details are overlooked in crafting our products…from the most durable domestic fabrics to heavy duty reinforcement at crucial stress points. Every product is engineered to provide the best performance and durability. We make each product to order to satisfy every customer’s specific needs…the “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t apply at Skyline!
The same approach applies to our service and rental division. Every customer’s needs are different as is every event or promotion location. Whether it’s your inflatable, dancer, flag or banner or ours, Skyline’s installers are trained to install to provide the most visibility, public safety, and follow all local sign codes.

Over the years, Skyline Promotions has consistently added new outdoor on-site advertising and promotional products to its lineup. Today, in addition to our inflatables and dancing tube men, Skyline offers a complete line of custom printed and stock flags of all styles, shapes, and sizes, custom printed banners, helium-filled blimps, balls and cloudbuster balloons and, most recently, eye-catching colorful wind generators and wind driven signage.

Skyline Promotions is proud to have earned a great reputation for its products and services and the way in which it conducts its business. Skyline has been nominated twice for the Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Year and its owner, Bruce Cohen, has been nominated for the Chamber’s Small Businessman of the Year. Evidently, we’re doing something right!

About Our Management

A native New Englander, Bruce Cohen first learned the basics of running a business while still in high school. His first business was a belt manufacturing business, selling the products to chain stores and boutiques. It was in this business that he was introduced to purchasing raw materials, overseeing manufacturing, sales and marketing, and financial management. He took a break to go to college and after that entered the footwear industry in a sales, marketing and sourcing capacity.

In 1991, after more than a decade in the footwear industry, Bruce moved down to Florida and acquired Skyline Promotions…and he’s been here ever since!

It was around the same time that Bruce joined the Inflatable Advertising Dealers Association (IADA), then a newly formed trade group. The opportunity to work with and associate with other leading firms in the industry was a natural for Bruce. All of the firms in the organization are truly professional operations and, like Skyline Promotions, are fully insured and committed to promoting the best practices in the inflatable industry. Today, Bruce Cohen is the president of the IADA’s Board of Directors.
