About

The hallmark of the Absolute Installation and Dismantle program is the training of our supervisory staff to always remain a step ahead of the rules and regulations that govern our labor pool, as well as the sites of installation. Mike Koren opened the doors of Absolute Installation and Dismantle 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 Installation and Dismantle 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!
