USA, February 20, 2018 – Fast Company today announced its annual ranking of the world’s 50 Most Innovative Companies (MIC) for 2018 and its Top 10 Most Innovative Companies across 36 categories. The Most Innovative Companies list honors leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in business and innovation.
The top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Live Event for 2018 include Populous, Live Nation, Museum of Ice Cream, WeWork, TAIT Towers, Endeavor, SeatGeek, Wanderlust, Goldenvoice and Emagispace. For TAIT, this is the second consecutive year being named to the list. “Any year that you are recognized as a leader in innovation is a great year, especially when you’re being recognized alongside these leading companies,” says Mia Tinari, Global Head of Marketing & Communications at TAIT. “Receiving this recognition on our 40th anniversary is serendipitous as TAIT was founded on the principle of innovation and forty years later that principle lives on.”
Innovation is in the company’s lifeline. In 1978, its founder created the first in-the-round revolving stage in concert touring history. Fast-forward forty years and TAIT's innovations are too numerous to list here, but continue to prevail because of its impressive team. “TAIT’s greatest asset is its world-class team,” says Tinari, "Every single person at TAIT is a key contributor, and, together, their contributions produce cutting-edge, boundary-pushing, futuristic innovations." In agreement is Adam Davis, CCO of TAIT, "The future is TAIT and at TAIT.” And, they’re right. Just ask Wired Magazine or LinkedIn or Dell – all of whom highlighted TAIT’s employees, projects and innovations via docu-series and articles this past year because of the high caliber work being produced.
Throughout the years, TAIT has maintained its status as a world market leader by continuously evolving, solving problems, and being fearless trailblazers. They live by an ethos of being a passionate team innovating the extraordinary with a commitment to excellence; embracing every challenge as an opportunity to engage and inspire its creative culture; and, when working together, there isn’t a problem they can’t solve.
By all accounts, it’s not just true in words, but also in practice. Tim de Lisle, writer for The Guardian and Daily Mail UK visited TAIT, saw the operation in action, and shared, “It says something about TAIT, where the staff seem unable to come across a problem, large or small, without wanting to solve it.”
It’s no easy feat to top such a well-respected list like Fast Company's. Being recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in Live Events for the second consecutive year is well-deserved and a true testament to the TAIT team.
Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
