According to organizers, Turin made a strong case for moving the convention to their location. Locations and hotels will be identified to participants in the near future. But the good news is that the prices will not increase despite the fact that the number of performers will increase and the convention will have additional activities outside of the convention and even a special program for non-magician guests. The seats previously selected for the big Gala Show will stay the same too.
The World Championship of Street Magic will as well be organized in Turin on May 17-18-19. If you think you have what it takes or would just like to see what you have, drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
So, let’s recount. The convention is moving to Turin – a great city with an amazing history – adding features for magicians and non-magicians alike, holding the Street Magic competition and keeping the same prices. Who will be there you ask? Oh, some folks you may have heard of before such as: Derek DelGaudio. Luis Piedrahita, Marco Tempest, Juan Tamariz, Morgan Strebler, Niek Takens, Raul Cremona, Luis Otero, Roberto Giobbi, Stuart MacDonald, Jay Sankey, Den Den, Aaron Pang, Omar Pasha. Organizers promise even more to come.
