The first Triller Fight Club PPV event was held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on April 17. PRG supplied lighting, LED, media servers, audio and crew services for the blowout boxing and music event, which combined epic design and performance elements to give a fresh take on the boxing format. PRG was called on to support the lighting design from Tom Kenny with a flown lighting rig above the ring as well as a performance stage for the musical acts.
