World Premiere Showing @ Star Island
To celebrate the world premiere of the award-winning Arkup, HYL is throwing a series of private showings from February 14-18, 2019.
With the assistance of InList, Billionaire Boys Club, celebrity influencers, Luminous Decor and Fabulous Design & Décor, HYL’s guests are presented to a beautiful lot overlooking the water with 3 mature trees draped in elegant white lights. Leading up the showcase tent, tea lights line the walkway along with lighted trees, bioluminescent butterflies and an outdoor lounge area centered around a 12 ft replica of the 2nd most expensive sculpture sold in history, 1947 sculpture by Alberto Giacometti, L’homme Qui Marche (sold May 11, 2015 for $141.3M).
They are producing a combination of Delano’s draping, flowing linen entrance along with Ceconni’s elegant, white lights around nature. As guests approach the showcase tent, 2 guards, dressed in black, pull aside sweeping sheer linens exposing the Arkup beyond. Their guests are transported to a beautifully detailed and intimate space that is less convention center intent on selling product, and more intimate lounge zones with comfortable furniture that welcome their guests to sit, relax and learn about their partner’s products, one on one.
Red carpet stretches from the showcase tent to the VIP platform and aquatic check in zone which sits directly in front of the Arkup. Upon the expandable terrace lies an extra special VIP table, reserved for HYL’s major partners.
Every night at sunset, they have produced a mesmerizing, aquatic showcase featuring partners: SeaBob, LiftFoil & Cygnet. They also have several talented musicians, DJs & performers lined up to accentuate the night.
On display alongside the Arkup is the Van Dutch 30, announcing the 2020 Van Dutch 30.2 as the Official Tender of the Arkup. Van Dutch yachts will be shuttling HYL’s executive guests from the Miami Yacht Show and waterfront villas.
As an added spectacle, Leonardo Helicopter will be landing on an ILandMiami floating helipad on Saturday & Sunday.
