PurFX is a group of atypical individuals who have developed an uncanny ability to make things spectacular.

Over the past 12 years, we have pushed back limits and broken conventions, forging an international reputation for offering large-scale creative experiences. This is the passion we share. This is what drives us, and in this area, we can never get enough.

Today, we are proud of our many achievements, and proud to introduce ourselves as a bunch of crazy talented people who want only one thing: do it again and do it better.


Right away, we started pushing back limits, coming up with ideas that have yet to be equalled. Our team is crazy talented, combining experience and daring, and we never back down from a challenge. A clash of generations has led to some of our greatest achievements. Individual contributions, and our shared abilities, are key. We don’t just look at the future – we’re in charge of it.

Meeting challenges has made us the best at what we do. For our team, every client, and every project, is an opportunity to excel. This is why we work with the biggest players in the industry, and with those who are ambitious to join them. We have an extensive client base because dedication is a core value for us and because we love doing exciting work, regardless of the project’s parameters.


If you want to be the best, you need to be surrounded by the best. Our achievements would not be possible without the incredible partners who support us and work with us every single day. Thanks to their invaluable assistance, we keep on moving forward, contributing to our clients’ success and to the growth of an entire industry.


Our strength is derived from the fact that we agree on our shared mission: creating unique and euphoric entertainments that exceed everyone’s expectations.

Our goal is to surprise. Our raw material is creativity.

If it’s already been done or seen, we’re not interested. We do more. We do better.


No challenge is too big for us. Bringing the right talents together, and defining the right parameters, is the process that enables us to throw ourselves into every adventure.



Creativity is the raw material of all our achievements, the vehicle for all our projects. Creativity is part of who we are. It gives us our motivation, and enables us to push back the limits of entertainment.

High standards

Our environment is spectacular and offers unlimited creative and technical possibilities. In this enormous playground, we need and want to apply the highest standards. We don’t just follow our industry’s safety standards – we go further, doing more than what is required. This is why our clients trust us implicitly.


Experience, acquired over the years as we accumulated projects and met countless challenges, is what enables us today to position ourselves as experts. Our rich and varied history, with its many successes, is a guarantee of the value we can deliver when you need to create unforgettable moments.
