On Thursday, March 2, 2023, Fast Company magazine released its list of the “World’s Most Innovative Companies,” an annual ranking of the businesses that have made the biggest impact in various industries such as media, travel and music. Moment Factory was ranked #8 in the category of “Most Innovative Live Event Companies.”

In recognizing Moment Factory, Fast Company celebrated the studio for “using immersive technology to delight people in surprising places.”

The American business magazine acknowledged Moment Factory and its fellow innovative live events companies for their impact on the industry and how their inclusion of technology has transformed live performance “to deepen fan immersion while staying true to what makes a live experience so irreplicable.”

We are honoured to be included on this list, alongside companies like Eventbrite, L-ACOUSTICS, Industrial Light & Magic, Superfly, Culturespace, Lyte, Lincoln Center, Amazevr & Slush Management.

The magazine chose to highlight a diverse selection of Moment Factory projects, from immersive concert experiences to interactive games to multimedia airport activations.

Projects mentioned include:

  • Live performances for Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever World Tour: a milestone for the studio’s long standing collaboration with the artist
  • ARcade: an augmented multiplayer experience produced in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, in association with Ivanhoe Cambridge and YMCA Quebec
  • Digital Journey of Surprises at Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal A: a series of multimedia installations that provide entertainment for travelers within a highly functional space, developed in collaboration with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Munich Airport International

Fast Company’s recognition reinforces the strength of our studio’s mission to bring people together within shared experiences. We continue to innovate creatively and technically so that we can offer projects that incite wonder and spark curiosity. Moment Factory is proud to continue shaping new forms of entertainment, and innovating across multiple contexts, which will be seen in our newest immersive experience, AURA Invalides, opening later this year in the heart of Paris.
