King Dahl has turned his passion for art, environmental aesthetics, and music, into a flourishing career in event production, design, and public speaking.
Inspired by freethinking visionaries since 1982, he has produced event environments throughout the world for celebrities in film, sports, music; dozens of Fortune 500 clients; and many meaningful charitable foundations. In 2016, Event Solutions Magazine inducted King into the Hall of Fame, celebrating his lifetime of accomplishments.
King recently retired from his day-to-day responsibilities leading the creative charge of a stellar, 100+ person team at MGM Resorts Event Productions.
