Our General Sessions feature five or six speakers each day, doing 20-minute talks on subjects they are experts on, presented with full lighting, sound, and video support in the state-of-the-art Orleans showroom. These presentations are a combination of shared knowledge, magic instruction, inspirational messages, celebrity interviews, and live magic performances. Our Focus Sessions are opportunities to spend more time with the experts. Nine different specialty subjects are covered by top performers in mentalism, history, close-up, technique, business, creativity, kid shows, cool new tricks, more! You have your choice of two of the three one-hour presentations offered daily. Our dealer room is a full deck’s worth of excitement – 52 companies demonstrating the finest, newest, and most exciting magic routines, props, and theatrical accessories available today. And, finally, the camaraderie and sharing of magic is almost legendary at MAGIC Live! “Sessioning” goes on much of the day and deep into the night. It’s quite usual to see a crowd gathered around one of magic’s top entertainers as secrets, techniques, and laughs are shared in the intimate setting of our open lounge.
Besides the nonstop entertainment of the dealer room and impromptu sessions, MAGIC Live presents the finest shows anywhere, often featuring world champions or acts making their United States debuts. Stage shows are presented in the Orleans Showroom on Monday and Wednesday night, featuring the hottest magic acts on the planet. Special shows unique to MAGIC Live are also presented, concepts being introduced to American audiences for the first time such as a show presented in the dark or one without a magician at all! Many of these are very special events that will not be seen anywhere else… ever. Our Close-up is presented in the finest setting of any convention – an intimate, custom-designed-and-built theater where every guest has a spectacular seat.
