“…At such times as our nation has stepped up to participate in a world expo, from the early ‘80s to the present more often than not Ogul has been tapped to help coordinate the effort on the government side – recently in connection with the USA Pavilion for Shanghai, and now, in connection with the RFP issued by the US government for participation in Yeosu Expo 2012

Changes are ahead: Ogul, now 70, has announced that he will retire in May. He shared with IPM Magazine a recap of some memorable roles and milestones – and some pictures – from his substantial world’s fair resume…”
