The Eighty-fourth Annual I.B.M. Convention in Norfolk, Virginia, July 3-7, promises to be a convention to remember. It will continue to build on the new ideas and events introduced at the Dallas “reinvention convention,” blending the old favorites with exciting new faces and events.
When you pick up your registration packet in Norfolk, you will be issued your own passport to gain entry to a four-day extravaganza of magic lectures, workshops, shows, and special events. Not only is the passport your schedule for entry to these special magic events, if you use this passport to visit each of the purveyors of magic in the Dealers’ Room and obtain their stamps indicating your visit, you will become eligible for special drawings.
Dale Salwak is producing a very special Stars of Asia gala that will highlight some of Asia’s top magic stars from China, Japan, and Korea in an I.B.M. exclusive show. This one-of-a-kind production will mix traditional Asian entertainment with the avant-garde, including stage illusion, comedy, manipulation, and dance in an explosion of color and mystery. Among the feature acts on this show are China’s Ma Yanyan and Butterfly Lovers and Korea’s Yuji Yasuda, with more outstanding Asian artists to be announced. (more…)
