Top Five Questions

Posted by Blog, almost 9 years ago. 0 comments

We get lots of enquiries about the Essential Magic Conference. Here are the top five.

Will all the Speakers be at Studio 33? Yes. Amazing as it seems, all the Speakers will be together at our Studio 33 facility in Portugal. They are not skyping from their homes! We are broadcasting high quality video of the conference via the internet.

What will the Speakers be doing? The Speakers are working in conjunction with ourselves to construct a varied schedule of events. The schedule will be published on the website nearer to the date of the conference.If you are looking for great tricks, we will have them. But we also have great talks on the psychology, presentation, history and business aspects of magic too.

Can I Pay with Pay Pal? We do not have Pay Pal on our website as yet. However, you can pay your registration by Pay Pal if you use the following address: info@essentialmagicconference.comWhen you have made your payment a member of the EMC Team will contact you and help you set up your registration. The cost of registration is 55 Euros (which will translate into approximately $75 depending on the currency values of the day).

Can I Invite My Friends Around to Watch the Conference? Yes. We are very happy for you to invite your friends around to your home to share the conference with you.If you are a club or organisation who wants to host a EMC event at your venue, then please contact us to discuss arrangements. We are very interested in finding ways to make this happen.

When Will I Receive My DVD'S? Anyone who registers now will receive a set of DVDs containing videos of all the conference events. These will be mailed out free of charge after the conference is over. It will probably take a month or so to complete the project and begin shipping. You will also be able to view all the lectures online and on-demand for one year following the conference.

Welcome to the Essential Magic Conference. We are really excited about this project. It seems the perfect time to have the world’s first web conference dedicated to magic.

Technologically the time couldn’t be better. Video broadcasting via the web is now part of every day life. And magicians, early adopters of any technology, have been part of the internet since its earliest days.

We are passionate about magic. And the purpose of this conference is to share that passion. To bring together some of the world’s top magicians and allow them to share their ideas and thinking with the wider community.

We want to bring together all the magicians who are currently surfing magic’s websites, blogs and forums and give them the very best that the world of magic can possibly offer. It’s a conference that you can attend from the comfort of your home. A conference where you can replay the lecture and take in the smallest details. A conference where you have an opportunity to question the speakers or share your own insights, thoughts and creations. Learn, share and collaborate. That is our aim. It needs only you to make it a success.

The first part of that dream is almost complete. We have assembled an incredible list of speakers. All of who are freely donating their time to this project. They represent a powerhouse of knowledge, skill and experience. And in July they will share it all with you. We hope you can join us.

You can register for our free EMC newsletter which will provide regular updates. Or you can keep on eye on this blog where we will be posting more news as our conference dates approach.

Or even better, you can buy your registration right now.

Thanks for dropping by. Hope to see you again soon.
