Owner / Creative Director
AOO Events, Inc., Los Angeles, CA
When David Merrell founded AOO Events in 1989, his vision was to design and produce personalized and original events. “All special events,” Merrell says, “truly demand a customized approach in order to fully achieve the client’s vision and purpose.” It is this philosophy that has positioned AOO Events as one of the most reputable event design and production firms in Southern California.
Under David’s direction, AOO Events has become an award-winning international event design and production firm of corporate events and weddings. David himself is the recipient of the 2008 Spotlight Award for Designer of the Year presented by Event Solutions magazine, while AOO Events has won nine Special Events magazine Gala Awards, four ISES Esprit Awards and one Crystal SITE Award. David is regularly featured and quoted in numerous trade and consumer publications and is a popular industry speaker both nationally and internationally. He is also the “lead dawg” on AOO’s award-winning blog, www.designdawgs.net.
