David Marquart

You name it in this industry, David Marquart has experienced it firsthand. David began his trade show career in the fall of 1985 right from college at IPFW. 3,000 Shows in over 200 cities in 30+ states later, David is focusing his 25 years of trade show and special event experience on making Coliseum Productions all it can – and should be.

David is a Fort Wayne native and got his start in the industry by working for a local rental company at the Memorial Coliseum. After learning the ropes and realizing this industry was his calling, David formed Marquart Convention Services, Inc., a full-service trade show and special event contractor in 1987. From there, he worked on almost every event at the Memorial Coliseum as well as countless other consumer and trade events all across the country.

Seeing a need for practical everyday proven technology for trade shows, he formed Advanced Expo Solutions International. Advanced Expo Solutions provides a wide range of expo services, including the state-of-the-art online ticket sales, registration, name badges, and bar code technology used by Coliseum Productions and many other event producers.

David has past, present, and current affiliations with IAEM (now IAEE), ESCA, ASAE, IASE, OASE, MPI, HSMA, ISES, ARA, IAAM, and multiple CVB’s around the country. After a 7-year leadership role which culminated with his Chairmanship of Ohio Valley Chapter of the International Association of Exposition Managers (IAEM, now IAEE), David was selected to the IAEM Services Board. At IAEM’s Expo in 2004, he was awarded the prestigious Merit Award. In 2005, Dave served as Treasurer for the Services Board. In 2006 & 2007, David was vice chair of this board and was asked to serve as chair in 2008.

David is an avid runner, hiker, snowboarder, deep sea fisherman and builds log and timber frame houses “on the side”.

Bob Rosen
Sales & Marketing Consultant

Bob Rosen has been at the forefront of the log-home and timber-frame industries since 1999, when his company, KQ&R, took over advertising sales for Goodman Media Group, then publisher of Log Homes Illustrated and Timber Homes Illustrated magazines. In 2001, Bob became a part owner and sales manager of the Log Home & Timber Frame Expo, which more than tripled in revenue under his leadership. Heading a team of respected sales representatives, Bob presided over dramatic magazine and expo growth, leading to the eight-figure sale of the Goodman Media franchise to F+W just two years later.

F+W recognized Bob’s leadership and broad knowledge of the log-home industry by retaining his company’s ad sales services, and ultimately naming him publisher and director of four magazines, 13 expos and the highest-traffic log and timber-frame home website. In early 2009, the entire division was sold by F+W to a competitor, Active Interest Media.

Bob’s career in consumer media and events spans more than 30 years. In 1986, he became sole proprietor of KQ&R, an ad sales and consulting firm for consumer media companies. In addition to F+W and Goodman Media Group, KQ&R’s wide-ranging client list has included Archie and Marvel Comics, Biblical Archaeology Review, Disney Publishing, Eating Well, Mothering, Newsday, the Wilson Quarterly, Yoga Journal and others. Bob has also been instrumental in developing, managing and selling advertising for numerous consumer websites, including the original Log Homes Illustrated site, F+W’s Log Home & Timber Frame Network, Mothering.com, SeriousEats.com, FestivalPreview.com, and others.

Bob is an avid hiker, backpacker, skier and runner.
