Who We Are

How We Started

Titan Event Technologies was founded on the idea of bringing cutting edge technology (thus the sword in the logo) and premium customer service to marketplace. We know that a successful production requires both to be on point.

TET was founded by Richard Miller (originally Seminars Simplified) in 2010 after working the seminar business since 1997. Having done almost 1000 successful seminars around the world, Richard knew it was time to take his methods, mindsets and expertise to the marketplace on a larger scale.

In 2017, TET expanded its operations by partnering up with the founders of  Top Notch Productions (Ryan Peterson and Brian Trujillo) which provides event staffing of high quality technicians and full event logistics and management.

Our Team

Richard Miller has been a trusted authority in the Audio Visual industry since 1997. In his first decade, Miller toured the United States and Canada with America’s second-largest Real Estate trainer, to produce over 600 seminars that drew crowds of over 1,000 attendees.

In 2007, Miller went on his own, producing events and creating information products for one of the largest online distributors of dating and relationship advice- Hot Topic Media and New You Advice.

In 2010, he founded Seminars Simplified, which quickly became one of the nation’s most sought-after seminar production companies. Luminaries from a variety of industries- ranging from TV celebrities, to heads of non-profit organizations, to some of the world’s most influential direct-marketing authorities- have relied on Miller’s unparalleled expertise to create captivating experiences for their attendees.

In addition to his prowess as a world-class producer, Richard Miller’s deep understanding of consumer psychology positions him uniquely to help his clients craft their most compelling sales narratives. As an avid student of human behavior and psychology, Miller has studied the MBTI personality system for over 20 years, in addition to Ericksonian Therapy, NLP, personal development, and the principles of influence and persuasion. In fact, many of Miller's clients consult with him on aspects of the show that go far beyond audio and video.

Miller is responsible for the design of the scenic elements of the show. Whether he does it through a custom fabricated set piece or an elaborate LED wall, Miller immaculately captures each client’s vision and brings it to life.

"To me, the most interesting thing about what we do isn't the technology or the design of the show, although I do love that side... to me, the most interesting thing about this business, are the words and the language our clients use to connect with their attendees...I love to observe what connects with crowds and what does the opposite...I love studying the aspects of the shows that create community and a sense of belonging within the audience.”

Phoenix Convention Center

We specialize in producing large events at venues like the Phoenix Convention Center. While there are many AV companies in Arizona, very few of them have the skills and resources necessary to produce a successful large-scale event at the Convention Center. 

We are owner-operators, not just “suits” who manage remotely and never show up on site. We have had the privilege of working at the Phoenix Convention Center in various capacities for over 10 years- many years before we even formed TET. Thus, we have the experience necessary to make your event at the Phoenix Convention Center a world-class event, from start to finish.

Whatever your vision, large or small, we can help you make it a reality at the Phoenix Convention Center!

Together, we are Titan Event Technologies.
