EXHIBITOR Magazine Senior Writer Charles Pappas, author of Flying Cars, Zombie Dogs, and Robot Overlords, will present “How World’s Fairs and Trade Expos Changed the World” at EXHIBITORLIVE, America's premier conference for trade show and corporate event professionals, February 25 – March 1, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas.

Charles Pappas The 45-Minute Authors Executive Series Session, scheduled for Tuesday, February 28th, is based on the EXHIBITOR magazine writer’s recent book and makes the case that no marketing tool in history is as effective as the live, collective experience trade fairs offer. Case studies presented illustrate how trade shows were the tipping point for social change, product innovation and emerging technology.

“Every time you plug your phone into a wall socket, flick on a TV, withdraw money from an ATM, lick an ice-cream cone, switch on a computer, ride an escalator, play a DVR, watch a movie about dinosaurs, get fingerprinted, or pop a tranquilizer, you're doing something that originated at a world's fair or trade expo,” Pappas contends. “And yet it’s invisible to most.”

Flying Cars, Zombie Dogs, and Robot Overlords EXHIBITOR magazine will be giving away a limited number of “Flying Cars, Zombie Dogs, and Robot Overlords,” and Pappas will be in the EXHIBITOR magazine booth (located in The Square) to sign copies on Tuesday and Wednesday, from 11:15-12:00. The book is currently for sale on Amazon.com.
