For its 30th anniversary Imec threw a dinner party for 400 in Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in Brussels.
For those who don't know the Galerieries Royales it's a bit like Piccadilly's Burlington Arcade - very swish, tres snob, lined with posh shops. Normally a public thoroughfare, Imec took it over for the evening.
After the first course a lady from an upstairs window started singing an aria from La Traviata.
Other operatic snippets were delivered by strolling singers.
Washed down by an excellent Bordeaux - Sirius 2010 served in magnums - you could feel the collective spirits soaring.
Good old Imec.
