2021 TAIT Yearbook

Founded in 1978 by Michael Tait, TAIT made its name in rock ‘n’ roll as one of the most innovative suppliers of touring staging, scenic, and automation in the business. We’ve delivered a host of groundbreaking live events, including U2’s 360° tour beamed from outer space and Metallica’s Freeze 'Em All show in Antarctica. Over the years, we’ve created entertainment experiences for music venues, theaters, cruise ships, theme parks, and everything in between, delivering projects around the world thanks to our global reach in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. In 2012, with the acquisition of FTSI, we began to build our proprietary TAIT Navigator Automation Platform™️, a system of hardware and software solutions that provide complex show control for entertainment environments. The following year, we announced the acquisition of both Delstar Engineering and Stage Technologies, strengthening our permanent install and tech capabilities, and giving us additional global reach. In 2014, our one-of-a-kind production community Rock Lititz was born: a one-stop shop for live experience collaboration, with design, manufacturing, engineering, and rehearsal spaces all under one roof. TAIT is a cornerstone Rock Lititz community member. We’ve been scaling globally since 2012, welcoming the best in the business into the TAIT Group. Most recently, we’ve brought on four new companies. In 2016, productionglue, an award-winning, US-based experiential agency joined our family. Then in 2019, Brilliant Stages, a market-leading staging design and production company, and Kinesys, a global provider of motion control technology products for the entertainment industry, were welcomed into the fold. In 2021, ITEC, a global leader in innovative, themed entertainment solutions joined the TAIT group. Today, we are the market leader in entertainment experience design and production. As one global team working from almost twenty locations, we continue to drive innovation across the industry, challenging the impossible for our customers every day.
