USA, February 20, 2019 – For the third year in a row, TAIT has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies in Live Event for 2019. The list honors businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture. This year’s list provides a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“Receiving this recognition again is a great reminder of just how important teamwork really is and how influential innovation is in creating extraordinary experiences,” says Adam Davis, CCO at TAIT.
They say it takes a village, and it really does. To create these experiences, it requires a team, armed with a diverse suite of disciplines and skill sets like engineering, design, fabrication and technology, working together to deliver a live event. “These live events create shared experiences that are community building and binding. Some are in-person communities others are digital communities. Because the ability to experience a live event has multiplied in form, it is essential that we continue to challenge ourselves, our clients and the industry, to be even more innovative when creating. This is an exciting time, we are at the advent of revolutionizing the live event experience,” shares Mia Tinari, Global Head of Marketing + Communications at TAIT.
And, by all accounts, TAIT is doing just that.
