Just the other day, I came across the 1963 US Mint set that I picked  
up as a souvenir.  I also have a 'radioactive' dime around.  Wish I  
had a picture of me with King Hussein of Jordan when he came through  
the RCA pavilion for an interview in the TV studio.

On the 'obsolete technologies' front.  Think of all the companies/ 
brands that had pavilions that are either defunct, sold overseas, or  
a shadow of their former selves.  I can think of a few that were  
there:  Singer, Bell & Howell, (I think), RCA, AT&T, Polaroid,  
Kodak.  I'm a 'retiree' of the latter...
