Message from the Boss
Greetings PTE Family!
We are excited to announce that PTE Productions won the 2013 ISES Esprit Award for Best Technical Production! Working on the Swan and Dolphin Holiday Lighting Show landed us among top three production companies out of a record number of submissions from 8 different countries. Our fellow finalists, Digital Lighting out of Maryland and Warner Brothers Studios, had amazing submissions and we are honored to have been nominated with them.
PTE is also exhibiting at a couple of international shows this year: The IAAPA Attractions Expo and The Rental Show. At IAAPA, November 8th, we will be debuting our latest lighting and audio integration initiatives. At ARA, February 9th, we will be showcasing the latest and greatest from PTE Productions and how we leverage wire-free LED’s groundbreaking technology.
We have welcomed two team members, collectively adding more than 40 years of event industry experience to PTE. Lori Jessup, Production Coordinator, has produced and stage managed events for The Sunburst Convention, House of Blues, and Super Bowl. Rick Climenhaga, Operations Manager, joins us from American Audio Visual and Disney. Our team keeps getting bigger and stronger; our events bigger and better!

Please contact for current pricing and availability.
Event Highlights: The Wharf
PTE Productions designed and installed a custom lighting show at The Wharf in Orange City, Alabama.
“Spectra” is an unexpected illumination show on The Wharf that runs three times nightly using numerous lighting effects.
In addition to “Spectra”, multiple shows have been created to highlight holidays and events.
“Patriotic” ran throughout July, and we are very excited about what is planned for the upcoming holiday season!
Did you know that wire-free LEDs can be used for more than just uplights? WirelessDMX makes these fixtures incredibly versatile.
Here’s a neat trick to try at your next event: when placing DMX controlled lighting fixtures on truss (flown or ground supported) use a wire-free LED light fixture to transmit DMX signal from the console up to the lights! This reduces labor on running bulky data cables, saves cable weight on those flown structures, and looks cleaner.
Until next time,
Unleash, Unplug, Create.
