Las Vegas, Nevada

Simply put, MAGIC Live is an adventure.

Our team works year-round to find new ways to surprise you, to offer something unexpected, to create an environment for you to share time with new friends and old — and to send everyone home inspired.

MAGIC Live is not your average convention. Yes, we book amazingly talented people, but then we manage to get them to do things they normally don’t do at a magic convention. Whether it’s sharing a personal moment during a General Session or teaching the real work for the first time in a Focus Session or performing a new piece onstage, close-up, or in one of our special venues — these presenters and performers are willing to jump out of their comfort zone to help build something special, something “beyond convention.”

This will be the tenth time that we’ve gathered to share the art of magic and the friendships it brings us. And for the tenth time, we will be adventurous. We will take risks. We will try new things. We will “walk on the wire,” if you will. All with the goal to create the best possible experience in magic.

I hope you will join us.

Learning

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, and more!

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.

Entertainment

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 introduced to American audiences for the first time, such as a magic show for the blind or one without a magician at all! Many of these are special events that will not be seen anywhere else — ever.

Our Close-up Experience is presented in the finest setting of any convention. We build an intimate, custom-designed theater where every guest has a spectacular seat.

More than anything, MAGIC Live is known for it’s profesional approach to… well, everything! When you arrive, you’ll discover a highly organized registration process, wonderful welcome gifts, personalized photo badges, a blowout party, and an opportunity to win prizes valued at thousands of dollars  — and that’s just the very first day!

Every detail is considered, every option is explored, and every bit is polished in order to bring you the best convention experience ever!
