2018 is starting off on the right foot with MagiFest, a magic convention hosted by Vanishing Inc. running from Thursday, January 25 through Saturday, January 27. There are going to be tons of great lectures, performances, and interviews throughout the week, and we’ll be on hand to cover it all.
For a full schedule of the event (as well as registration information), you can visit MagiFest.org, but here’s a sample of the kinds of events you’ll get to take part in:
- Lawyer Doug Isenberg will talk about how intellectual property rights apply to magic
- Guiness record-holder for card throwing Rick Smith, Jr. will give an on-stage demonstration (there’ll even be a contest later in the week!)
- Josh Janousky will show off some of his inventions
- A Magic in the Marketplace talk, featuring discussion about internet magic, gimmicks, gadgets, and more with the minds behind several magic retailers
- Lectures by Shawn Farquhar, Woody Aragon, the legendary Max Maven, and many more
- A huge dealer’s room with vendors from all over the world
- Performances by Kieron Johnson, Max Maven, Ben Seidman, and a gala show to close it out
We’ll be wandering the show all week, looking for stories and meeting with magicians, so come find us and say hi!
