The platforms are checked prior to each event and maintained to ensure maximum safety for our clients and staff. With the aid of 16 steel cables, the table of 4 tons weight can be lifted up to 164 feet height by a crane with minimum 120 tons lifting capacity.

The inaugural event held above the city of Brussels in April 2007 comprised a ordinary platform suspended in the atmosphere with 22 guests. It was so successful that the men knew they had a winning concept on their hand. Word spread about the wacky high-wire act, and the duo started receiving lots of applauds... That’s when they knew there was no looking back. Since then DITS has created more than 5,500 events in more than 51 countries around the world. Nothing like it, DITS itself is a unique aerial dining event giving us the unimaginable experience of joys, laughter’s and Goosebumps. A Toast On Cloud Nine has been made a reality by DITS. It is meant for anyone who wishes to transform a dinner with business Partner's, Meeting with Client's, Marketing Event, Fair, Private Parties Confidential Board Meetings, Brainstorming Sessions, TV Shows or Product Presentations and much more into a magical moment that will leave a lasting impression on your guests and clients.

Every product is special to its creator, it represents months, sometimes years of research, failure, going back to the drawing board and sleepless nights until one day the eureka moment arrives and your pride and joy is ready to be shared with the world. Dinner in the Sky is the one that gives you the canvas for your master stroke by offering an exceptional visibility for clients, thanks to the underneath banner that can be customised with his logotype. The overall concept such as appearance, catering, venue, techniques, location set up, entertainment, decoration or branding can be individualized and personalized according to the client’s wishes. It is a perfect marketing tool to promote brands and get incredible visibility. FOR BRANDING it is pertinent that brand will get promoted in the Sky in an unusual manner. In addition to that we propose to promote the brand in the following manner like at the bottom of the table, back of each chair, at the barricades of the venue, on the crane boom and the seat belts on the chairs.

With Dinner in the Sky, we invent and customize a new way of attending golf or tennis tournaments, of organizing business meetings, sponsored events or fundraisers, private function and of enjoying festivals or fireworks. Dinner in the Sky is an event that can be held anywhere (golf course, public place, race track, castle, vineyard, historical site…) as long as there is a surface of approximately 500 m² that can be secured.
