Chicago agreed to host the AIBA World Boxing Championship shortly prior to the tournament dates. That meant a lot of planning in a short time frame.

Carrie and her team produced the opening ceremony at The Chicago Theatre with an Olympic-style athlete procession up State Street. It was the first time the City ever closed the street for such an event.

At the theater, they created an original stage show for the ceremony featuring 21 culturally diverse performance groups and a short speaking program with Mayor Daley and Muhammad Ali. Total time from first meeting until the event itself? Four short weeks.
