Latex absolutely will not work for that length of time!  They will get oxidized and
shrink up and look horrible.  You do not want to use latex.

I highly recommend using the duo balloons.  I did a large display with 5,000 18" duos
and they stayed up for months.  Only a few shrunk because we did not have them sealed
right.  You can reuse them if you want to save money and have the space to put them in
- I don't recommend taking the air out because it takes too long.
