In 1967 I exhibited at my first National Trade Show in New York City at the old Coliseum at Columbus Circle. That was the first of 130 National Trade Shows. That was about four trade shows a year for 40 years. Of the 130 National Trade Shows, I presented 95 National Sales and Marketing Seminars in the US. In 1989 and 1990 I was invited to London and Paris to present three Gift Design Symposiums.
