Charles Schwab retained CEO Events to develop and produce a ‘creative, memorable and unique' gala for 2,500 guests. CEO Events devised a theme based upon the history of Greek Gods and the origin of the Olympic Games. Incorporating a play off of the Summer Olympics in Athens, CEO Events identified and secured a venue with a definitive Greek feeling and produced what became the 2009 ICON Award Winning event 'An Evening of Myths and Mortals.' The evening offered a nationally known band, Greek street scenes with interactive characters and individual tents, each decorated to address a particular Greek God. Traditional Greek food was fabulously presented on lavish buffets.
