Blackpool 2011 to Include FISM European Championships

January 22nd, 2010 by Magic Convention Guide

Blackpool Magicians Club have confirmed that their bid to obtain the European Championships from FISM has been accepted and the FISM European Championships will be held as part of the Blackpool Convention in 2011.

The length of the 2011 Convention will be slightly extended in that it will commence on Friday morning at 9.00 a.m. and much of the Convention will be dedicated to world class Close-Up and Stage competitions.

A meeting will be held with the Presidium (Committee of FISM) during Blackpool Convention week to draft the plans for the conference. Entry details for competitors will be released as soon as possible. This will be the very first official FISM European Championships ever staged. Another major coup for Blackpool Magicians’ Club.

As previously advertised Blackpool will be hosting the FISM World Championships in 2012 in July (as well as the normal Blackpool Convention in February, 2012). The official FISM 2012 website will be launched in the coming weeks.

Registrations for the Blackpool Convention in February 2010 are at an all time high and is predicted that the event will sell out soon.

Registrations for the FISM World Championships in 2012 have already exceeded expectations and we believe that this event will also sell out before 2012.

You still have time to get some of the final tickets for Blackpool 2010, with an all star line up including Franz Harary, Russ Stevens, David & Dania, Clive Webb & Danny, Henry Evans, Banachek, Yigal Mesika, David Williamson, David Penn, Mark Mason, Jay Sankey, Juan Mayoral, Joe Mogar, Steve Axtell, Tony Stevens, Dave Allen, Han Seol Hui, David Kaplan, Huang Zheng, Levent, and Yo Kato, its the worlds biggest magic convention.
