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.

TEDxCambridge

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.

OF PAOLINO PROPERTIES

We have used Port Lighting for multiple special lighting projects at Paolino Properties, and have been very satisfied with their services thus far. Their staff is consistently dedicated to providing superior service.

Their passion for what they do is evident in everything they do for us. They have spent many late nights coming up with nifty ideas for displays with our lighting system, not because it is their job, but because they thoroughly enjoy expressing their creativity through their work. They are always prompt with answering our questions and addressing any concerns that come up along the way. They have an amazing team mentality which helps their performance to be superior to most. They are also very personable and enjoyable to work with. I am glad that we found Port Lighting to help us with all of our specialty lighting needs.

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.
