PORTABLE SKYSUITES MOVE IN AND OUT OF THE SCENE
Published May 16, 1995
Corporate Entertainment Corp., of Boca Raton, FL, has introduced fully-portable temporary skysuites that will allow venues to provide sky-box amenities on a temporary basis to facilities that do not have permanent suites. Each sky suite is installed by crane and can be stacked as many as five-high. The suites come in two sizes, either 640-square feet or 320 square feet. Amenities include air conditioning, heating, a refrigerator, satellite TV, oak flooring and oriental rugs. The company will approach venues and organizers of sporting events that do not have sky-box facilities such as raceways, minor league baseball, college football, and golf and tennis tournaments (Skysuite). The suites debut at the Indy 500, with the Indy Racing League leasing a box at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to attract new sponsors for the league. The boxes will be placed behind each pit at the IRL's first race in Orlando next year (Curt Cavin, INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 5/15).
