I wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to each of you for the exceptional work you did at the NEC Gala this past weekend!

Your talent and expertise in transforming this gala into something magical and unforgettable is truly remarkable. From the concert lighting and show calling, to the dinner, then the after party, guests were really impressed by the seamless transitions and the captivating atmosphere you all created at every stage of the evening.

I have received countless compliments from the clients and guests about how the lighting was the best yet, and it completely enhanced their experience and made the event truly memorable.  Your hard work and contribution from the pre-planning stages to the onsite execution played a significant role in making this gala the best one yet, and for that, I am immensely grateful.

Peabody Essex Museum

I cannot thank you enough for everything you did in the months, days, and hours leading up to our Gala on Saturday night. The experience of working with you from beginning to end was a true pleasure for me, Henry, and our staff. Your customer service skills, management of your team, and talent as a lighting designer made this the least stressful and most fun lighting experience for our Gala we have ever had. The space NEVER looked better and I heard many comments from our guests, staff, etc. that echo this statement. You were somehow able to achieve the elusive blue we have been trying to capture in that space for years. 
You brought the magic to the museum on Saturday and made everyone quite literally look good :) Please pass along to your team our thanks as well. Thank you, thank you from all of us at PEM. Thank you for continuing to sponsor this event year after year - you have an incredible team.

A belated -  but no less heartfelt - thank you to you and the entire Port team for all of their help and hard work that made the event a success.

The client was beyond thrilled with the overall look and feel for the event and I have to say that the printed screens definitely set the tone for the entire event. Guests raved, so much so, that they heard many more compliments the next day during their annual meeting. Thanks for taking the time to find the right solution for the client and their budget.

TEDxCambridge 2018 represented our fifth collaboration with Port Lighting, who provided lighting design for our 2,500 guests at the Boston Opera House.

This year's show featured a new stage element that Port Lighting collaboratively designed from the initial idea and product testing, through to fabrication review and on-site venue setup.

The result was a semi-circular lightbox featuring LED luminaries and moving head uplights that created a dramatic theatrical effect for the event production. It's a pleasure working with such a talented group of creative lighting professionals who share our passion for excellence.

Boston Bruins

Why Port? Because why use anybody else?! Port is the #1 trusted partner for the Boston Bruins’ lighting needs at TD Garden. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Ron and Steve, and quickly learned how exceptionally flexible, accommodating, and endlessly patient they are while meeting our sometimes crazy and bizarre demands. Many times, I've had to call Port to add new light enhancements or program lights with just a few hours’ notice. Port has always pulled it off for us, which sometimes meant working through the night.I rely heavily on Port’s expertise when brainstorming new concepts and ideas as they are always looking to help us enhance the atmosphere for our fans and provide an excellent experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Port to anyone wanting help bringing their entertainment lighting production services ideas to fruition.

Port Lighting has been and will continue to be, a trusted and reliable partner for us. They are consistent, proactive, professional, and responsive to our challenging and dynamic requests. The technical support and feedback Port has provided us through the years has been amazing.

When only the best will do, I call Port.

Port Lighting is my go-to for any programming needs as they have the ability to seamlessly incorporate equipment from many different manufacturers into one project. Programming a lighting system is all about getting all elements to “talk” to each other appropriately—and when multiple manufacturers are involved, it definitely gets tricky. Port's knowledge of programming is second-to-none. They can make any system work beautifully.
