Our Story

With an ambition to advance the live event and the guts to carry it out, we founded productionglue in February 2006.

We set out to innovate in every aspect of the business—from management and strategy to creativity and technology. And with each project success, we pushed our ambition further, in search of new adventures, higher stakes and greater challenges. This spirit of advancement is what motivated us in the first place, and drives us to keep innovating today.

But perhaps most importantly, our track record has allowed us to grow from a few friends with a vision into a full-service team, collaborating with hundreds of clients. When we began, we couldn’t possibly have imagined where our collective abilities and commitment would take us. And now, with 10 years under our belt, we can’t wait to discover what new milestones the future holds.
