Since 1998, POET Technical Services has been conceptualizing, building, and implementing custom entertainment technical solutions for theaters, casino venues, festivals, arenas and cruise ship theaters around the globe. In addition to being a leader in performer flying solutions, POET Technical Services provides architectural solutions, custom development, safety inspections, cloud based maintenance, and “architainment” technical solutions.

The customized nature of entertainment productions and the push to always create “something new” requires a unique approach to entertainment technical solutions to create effects with impact on stage. The “tailored” requirements of ground-breaking entertainment productions affects many different departments and flexibility is needed in the entertainment technical design so it can fit with different venues or other specialized requirements. Technical entertainment support varies dramatically between different venues types. A traditional performing arts theater has very different operational parameters versus outdoor venues. More modern styles of interactive entertainment such as entertainment spaces on cruise vessels or retail entertainment can be drastically different than traditional entertainment. The Poet Technical Services’ team specializes in designing technical elements with flexibility to achieve maximum impact.

Although our team’s focus has shifted to specialized performer theatrical flying effects and entertainment-related software solutions, POET Technical Services continues to provide full production services to select clients as well as to all new theatrical productions created by POET Theatricals and POET Theatricals Marine.


POET Technical Services is a leader in developing cloud-based entertainment software solutions.

Our cloud software has tracked thousands of inspection, inventory and repair reports in multiple locations around the world. The cloud software framework developed by POET software engineers was designed to be easily customizable, scale-able and easy to implement. Due to the nature of this type of software development, we are able to quickly design and implement cloud supported safety inspection systems based on your current reporting systems.

The POET cloud-based tracking system is available as a white-label SaaS (Software as a Service) solution for clients wishing to implement their own branded safety system on their custom domain.
