Gala events in stately classical buildings are our daily bread. But what if an industrialist wants to celebrate his birthday in his own production facilities? We simply get on with it. So the factory halls were emptied without further ado, with all the machines being dismantled and stored in tents. This also included a production line with a length of 30 metres, a width of 5 metres and a not to be underestimated height of 8 metres. After all, we needed space for 2,000 guests, 10,000 glasses, 15,000 pieces of cutlery, 250 dinner tables, 800 metres of tablecloth, 3,000 square metres of carpeting etc. Here are a few more record-breaking numbers:
would have been the total height of all the lighting beams if they had been mounted on top of one another. And that would have made them an impressive 152 m taller than the 828 m high Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest building in the world.
employees spent a complete day practising all the service operations for the big evening. This was the only way to serve all 2,000 guests a complete course within a time frame of only 12 minutes.
watts is a little more than the energy requirement of a typical four-person household. But when spread across 2,000 guests it is extremely economical.
is a respectable distance on foot. In this specific case almost 13 km of cable was laid for the event. If you were to walk along these cables, it would take about two and a half hours without a break.
GOOD SERVICE HAS A LOT TO DO WITH EXPERIENCE AND PASSION – AND WITH THE GUESTS YOU TAKE CARE OF. AT THIS CELEBRATION OUR GUESTS WERE SIMPLY GREAT.
