Genii Magic Convention

Our friend and editor of Genii magazine Richard Kaufman has announced a great looking convention to mark Genii's 75th Anniverary.  It takes place Oct 4,5 and 6 in Orlando Florida.  Please watch Richard's video below, read further down for details from Richard and visit the convention website here

with more to come. 

Plan on arriving by midday Thursday since things will start early that afternoon—we’re going to give you a full three days worth (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday October 4, 5, and 6) in Orlando at The Florida Hotel and Conference Center. 

My friends, and advertisers in Genii, are being extremely generous with goodies for you: DVDs, tricks, booklets, decks of cards, and more—we might even hit a baker’s dozen items that you’ll get for free when you check in on Thursday.

I like to think of everyone who will come to our convention as a unified group—we all have the common interest of having fun and celebrating Genii’s long life by seeing great magic. I’m not going to have more than one event taking place at the same time; you won’t have to choose between things. If you register, you’ll be able to see everything. I also don’t like overbooking registrants solely to make money, and so except for the performances of close-up magic, you won’t be split into groups. If you want to sit next to your friends during every event, be my guest. 

For those who wish to break off and do their own thing, we’ll have places for you to hang out, relax, sit, and session. 

Events will not start at 8 a.m. and drag on until 1 a.m.—you’ll have time to get adequate sleep each night (but if you sit up all night doing tricks, don’t blame me). Starting early Thursday afternoon will allow us to maintain sane hours on Friday and Saturday.

Registrations are $350. Hotel rooms are $99 a night (pay only $147, excluding tax, for three days if you share with a friend). 

Our hotel’s amenities include, specially for our group: 
Free Internet service in your room
Free parking, free bottles of water every day
Free use of the Fitness Center
Free use of the Business Center
Free daily newspaper. 

You’ll be six miles from Orlando International Airport, 10 minutes from Universal Studios (home of The Wizardling World of Harry Potter), and 20 minutes from Walt Disney World, which will be holding its annual Food and Wine Festival at Epcot during that time. 

We have a limited amount of space available. Details are on our special convention website:


We would be grateful if you register online. Please book your hotel room at the time of registration, directly through the hotel (details and links are on the convention website: Expedia, Travelocity, and other internet discount sites will not be offering rooms at a less expensive rate because we have blocked off the entire hotel). 

If for some reason using the computer to register gives you the willies, feel free to call the Genii office at 301-652-5800.
