The company Events in the Sky started this innovative gastronomic trend—which currently operates in over 15 countries—in Brussels, Belgium. It caters to clients who wish to transform a meal or a meeting into an exceptional and unforgettable event. Dinner in the Sky operates under the following premises: exclusivity and maximum safety. In fact, the experience adheres to the highest standards of German security—namely, the DIN 4112, known as Fliegen of Bauten—which sets strict guidelines for suspended building structures.
The firm offers three distinct options in their operations. One is Business in the Sky (with a happy hour, brunch, lunch or dinner), designed for business meetings, to show the progress of a project under construction, or introduce a new product to the press in a fun and original way. Clients can hire a second crane to raise another platform to the same height.
The second option is called Gastronomy in the Sky and covers everything related to the restaurant business, from lunch, dinner and wine tastings to cooking workshops or the presentation of a particular dish. And there is also Entertainment in the Sky, geared toward broadcast and sporting events, from GP motorcycle races to Formula 1. Your select group of guests will have a unique advantage since the platform acts as a VIP box with fabulous aerial views.
Dinner in the Sky can also customize the platform to suit your event, including branding and logos, turning it into a first class advertising stage. This exclusive initiative costs about US$ 10,000 for a period of eight hours; however the food, chef and wait staff are not included in the price. We recommend that you check the company’s website because they may have a trip scheduled to your city or another nearby city to make your reservation and enjoy this fabulous experience.
