There is a Trade Show Magician by the name of Troy Milligan (Sacramento, CA) who did a seminar last August on how to become a trade show magician, and is planning another two-day seminar for February/07.

As one interested in moving into the trade show market, and wanting to learn as much as I can, I was wondering if anyone here had any firsthand knowledge of this gentleman, and perhaps of his seminars as well.

Yeah, I saw the adds and the web-site, and for as close as he is to me, I'm surprised that I don't know him or anything about him, cuz I know most all of the pro-guys. Honestly, that doesn’t mean anything but it's just strange to me... that's all. So the answer is NO, I don't know anything!

IF "anyone" would know about him it would be Steve Johnson from Grand Illusions magic Shop in Sacramento (Carmichael) California. He is also one of the Magic Broadcast Show Hosts... You can get him there or at WebMaster@GrandIllusions.com

Than should get you the insider answers you really need.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

I just emailed Steve, and will hopefully hear back soon.

If anyone else knows anything about this gentleman, I'd love to hear from you (either via the forum or PM).

The bunny's gotta go??? :-(

I guess that's the price of moving up the corporate ladder - friends get sacrificed. That's ok; I like rabbit stew.

Ooooh don't cook him- just remove him from the photo.


I love the braces tho- I'd keep those.

The bunny has now been disposed of. Don't worry, he's safe and sound. Smile

If you want to learn about trade shows I would do the following (actually this is what I did)


Buy the eddie tullock DVD

Go to trade shows- any of them

look around to get a feel of the place.

See how trade show stands work- see what doesn't work.

If your lucky you'll see another magician working _ I Only saw one.

Pick up the exhibitor guide (all the exhibitors- you'll use these in marketing later)

For now just get a feel for it also find out where the exhibitor party is- usually on the first day at night and try and get an invite or hang around the entrance and get in- or contact one of the exhibitors weeks in advance who are sponsoring the party and iether get paid or do it for free (depending on your circumstances) and get in to the party and network via performing

-This is a hugely competitive field.
-There are few of us who are successful at this.
-Often you end up pitching more than doing magic.
-Very few can really teach you the business.
-Even with a master workshop it’s an uphill battle.
-Save your money.
-Buy another rabbit.
-Get the books someone listed above.

Magically,
Walt
