About Absolute I&D, exhibit installation & dismantle, trade show services
www.absoluteiandd.com, 9 Feb 2014 [cached]
Mike Koren opened the doors of Absolute I&D in 2002, having worked with innumerable installation and dismantle services and never quite getting the personal service he felt his clients deserved. Mike has always been in sales; first in the furniture business, then in mortgage sales, and finally in the past 25 years in the exhibition industry. The trademark of his sales work is his ability to form a relationship with every client. Absolute I&D services individual exhibitors, as well as major exhibit houses world round. We have multiple crews and union contracts in all of the major show venues and show leads to fly everywhere. Mike oversees all of his clients personally, and has been known to be in Orlando in the morning, Las Vegas midday, and end his day or evening on the show floor in Anaheim. He is truly hands-on and never plans to retire!

Mike Koren, President, Absolute I&D, Inc.
...
Mike was in the furniture manufacturing business for over 20 years - ending as the vice president of a national brand and on the road 300+ days a year. He then became a mortgage broker but was enticed back to display sales 15 years ago.
Mike was a serial college boy - including University of Texas, Arizona State, and USC - he always has a team to cheer on - but did finally graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.
Born in Steven's Point, Wisconsin and raised in Dallas, Texas and finally southern California. He is married with two children and his hobbies include playing poker, walking the hills that surround his home, working out, reading, and going to the beach.
What did you want be when you grew up and how did it work out for you? Mike responded that he had always planned to an attorney, however his father thought he should be a mortician - so he tossed the two together and became a salesman, something he has enjoyed doing for a lifetime!
...
Mike drew him into the exhibit business many years ago and finally got him through the AE doors!
