Stortz Lighting evolved from Robert Stortz Associates into a major force in the event lighting world. For more than 15 years, we have been a premier special event lighting and production design firm, both in New York City and across the country, receiving multiple accolades from event planners and venues for our quality of design and genuine attention to service and detail. Our core team of designers has extensive background in theater, museum, concert and special event lighting design - each project bears the mark of these diverse styles and influences. We pride ourselves on being a full-service partner with our clients, from the first contact until the last guest has left the event.

Our work can be seen at an array of events-ranging in size from several dozen to several thousand guests-in New York, the tri-state area, across the U.S. and abroad. In each case our lighting is carefully incorporated into the overall design and décor, evoking the perfect mood for the theme or nature of the event. Whether a museum, hotel ballroom or tent, a wedding, corporate fund-raising dinner or informal party, we provide design packages that perfectly complement our clients' needs, aesthetic and budget.

Stortz Lighting's design and production teams approach each event as a unique experience. We use specially-designed equipment, including custom, felt-padded mounting brackets for installation-sensitive museums, weather-resistant lighting fixtures for outdoor events, and white lights and extension cords for tents and other rooms with white walls or ceilings, to ensure that our installations are as safe and unobtrusive as possible.

Recently, our services have expanded to include audio / visual installations, sound reinforcement and staging elements, as well as permanent lighting consultation and temporary power distribution. This makes Stortz Lighting a one-stop resource for your event production needs.

Our attention to detail, innovative design and installation techniques-and the impressive results they produce-have made Stortz Lighting one of the foremost design and production resources in the event industry.
