Genii Convention

Genii magic conventions
For professional and amateur magicians – or simply people who love magic – a magic convention is a great way to learn about the latest tricks, illusions and magic techniques in the industry or to meet some of the biggest names in the business. 

Every year there are dozens of magic conventions with different themes and styles all throughout the United States – from Florida to California, New York to Georgia, and of course, Las Vegas. 

With so many conventions – from the small club conventions to the big international attractions – it can be hard to choose which ones to attend and on which ones to spend money for travel, lodging and admission. In my personal experience, three important factors can help make the decision: the entertainers or magicians performing at the convention; the dealers (magic shops) that will be present displaying the latest in magic; and the theme or type of convention. I am personally most interested in attending magic conventions where the speakers, magicians and entertainers are all related to magic card tricks, stage presentations, illusions, and comedy magic. 

For that reason, one of my favorite conventions is the Genii Magic Convention. The Genii Convention, held every other year, is one of the best for its variety and quality of speakers, magicians, entertainers and dealers brought in from all over the world, right here to Orlando, Florida! The Genii Convention of 2019 will run from Oct. 2-6 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando.

 So what is the Genii Convention? For any magician, magic shop entrepreneur or just someone who enjoys the art of magical performance, the Genii Magic Convention brings together the best in the world to present lectures, workshops, and performances that demonstrate and teach the art of magic. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for someone in the industry, and a chance to learn from professionals on the art of performance, illusion, and tactics for the most notable tricks in the book. It’s also a chance for the greatest magicians to gather and share their experiences and information with each other in order to learn and grow, and for new, rookie magicians to get a glimpse into the industry and a deep dive into the world of magic.

The Genii Convention strives to bring together fresh, new talent to showcase their performances live at the event, to make sure all tricks and performances are truly “never before seen” for all attendees. The 2019 convention is showcasing performers from across America and Europe, with some demonstrating their talents for up to hour-long shows. The event is organized so that all attendees get to watch all shows, and not choose between those that are scheduled at the same time. And there are plenty of workshops and lectures where attendees can get a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite performers and learn from the best of the best in between shows. 

The headliners for the 2019 convention will be none other than Penn & Teller – the world- famous American magicians currently performing in Las Vegas and the tv program Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Audience members can enjoy their lively, edgy mix of magic and comedy. It’s an opportunity to witness some of the best professional magic firsthand and also gain valuable takeaways from each performer, and to learn from their workshops and performances and apply the techniques in your own work. 

According to Genni Convention website: The attendance cost for four full days of performances, lectures, and workshops is $350 for early-bird registration, rising to $400 in April, 2019. The convention has reserved rooms in the Florida Hotel and Conference Center, where convention attendees receive discounted prices on rooms. If you’re more interested in reserving a room nearby, the Hampton Inn Orlando-Florida Mall and the Red Roof Inn Orlando South-Florida Mall are both within walking distance of the convention location.
