The Finest Magic Conventions in the World

We strongly believe we’ve worked out what makes a great magic convention. The right balance of amazing performers, brilliant lecturers, good dealers and to make sure there is enough hang time to session properly.

We all know that fantastic sessioning is what really makes a magic convention special. Normally our VIP guests will be right in the thick of it with you, until the early hours of the morning. But it’s not just about the VIPs. It’s about everyone. And we try to create atmospheres at the magic conventions we run that are inclusive. We strive to improve the vibe and feeling of sharing and learning that makes our magic conventions special. Join us at The Session - our London magic convention or Magifest in Ohio and see if you agree with the way we do things. We’re sure you will!

What are Magic Conventions?

Magicians gather in various corners of the globe away from the public to hone their craft. There are close-up shows focusing on sleight-of-hand, as well as stage shows, lectures, talks, and workshops. What’s most amazing is that if your interests were rock music or cinema or comic books, it would be virtually impossible to meet your heroes. But in magic, it’s possible to attend a magic convention and actually talk with your heroes, or a world champion or a legend. We've put together a guide of what to expect at your first magic convention .


Are Young Magicians Welcome?
