At Moment Factory, we bring people together. Our shows and destinations pioneer forms of entertainment that offer the world new experiences. Whether at a concert, a flagship store or across an urban square, we aim to inspire a sense of collective wonder and connection.
The campfire has long played an essential role in human life: a source of light, heat and safety. But it is also a gathering place where stories are told and ideas are shared.
The place of fire in our lives has evolved. But the deep need to gather and share stories remains. Drawing from a bottomless multimedia toolbox, we deliver high-impact projects that serve as modern-day gathering places. We tell stories that reconnect us to each other and to a sense of belonging to something bigger. We are builders of digital campfires.
As technology offers us infinite opportunities to interact through personal devices, the need to physically bring people together seems more vital than ever. Be it a fleeting moment or a repeatable destination-based visit, our objective is simple: to draw people out of their homes toward collective experiences. To do this, we create epic encounters that spark public participation and spread positive energy.
This is why we do it in public.
