Tait acquires staging and design provider Brilliant Stages


Tait, a provider of design, engineering and operation solutions for live experiences, has completed its acquisition of the entire share capital of Brilliant Topco, which specialises in staging and design for live events.

The acquisition brings together more than four decades of live event expertise to create a platform capable of deploying a global suite of live event technology and solutions.

Since 1978, Tait has been a global provider of advanced creative, engineering and automation services to the live entertainment industry. Tait’s diverse group of clients and markets include Princess Cruises, Fortnite World Cup, Disney, Dubai Expo 2020 and the Olympics. At the core of its services is Tait Navigator, a proprietary automation and show control platform.

Brilliant, founded in 1983, has similarly worked with a diverse group of clients including Hugh Jackman’s ‘The Show’, Coldplay, Virgin F1 Racing and the Dubai Mall.

“We have built the brand brick-by-brick with an equal focus on spectacle, design, employees and customers,” said Ben Brooks, managing director of Brilliant. “That is what makes being part of Tait a perfect match; culturally we are 100% aligned.”

“This really is a perfect cultural match,” said Adam Davis, chief creative officer at Tait. “We are excited to share with Brilliant our technology, assets and lessons learned over our 40 years in the live event business. We found a true partner in Brilliant and share a deep belief in delivering excellence to our customers and their fans.”
