I receive the Linking Ring, MUM, Magic and Genii. For months, the SAM has been running ads for the Las Vegas convention with a ever growing list of impressive performers. Unless I am missing something, I have yet to see a performer named in any print ads and just the same rather drab announcement that there will be a IBM convention in Norfolk. Why is that the case?

Oh we have some fine talent. I tried hard to book acts that were unique and not overly seen on the convention scene. I booked a one man show that is stellar, a special feature lecture/show with an outstanding young performer that you're gonna love, multiple close up guys who have almost all been on the covers of MAGIC and Genii ... and more... I think they start releasing names on Friday, February 3rd ...

We have really changed the schedule format for the convention so each day starts with one of the BIG THREE events at 9:30am (yes nothing at 8:00am) followed by some uncontested time for you to shop the many dealers we have booked. The afternoon will feature the contests... yes contests when the acts aren't usually sleeping! Lectures at the same time everyday and night so you don't even have to consult your schedule to know what's going on and find out what you missed. I'm really proud to be a part of this new team and to be able to continue the I.B.M. tradition of offering it's members outstanding events. David Sandy and his team did such a great job last year, we have big shoes to fill.

I had the chance to visit Norfolk and it looks like a fun town to visit. This Summer I'll be giving it the "Hannah" test, when my daughter is let loose on the unsuspecting residents.

Keep well and busy,

The I.B.M. 84th Annual Convention will be held in Norfolk, Virginia on July 3rd – 7th, 2012. We are pleased to announce that the following outstanding close-up talent.

The outrageously funny Geoff Williams will entice audiences with his mind-blowing sleight-of-hand illusions. You won’t want to miss the amazing card magic of magician and author, John Bannon. From Spain, the incomparable Dani DaOrtiz will entertain you with his superb technique and crazy humor. Joining us from Canada is comedian and magician, David Acer (aka Doubting Dave on Mystery Hunters), who only has to look at you to make you laugh. The fact that he is also an accomplished magician is just icing on the cake. More than just an entertainer – Hannibal – captivates his audience with his combination of magic and storytelling. You won’t want to miss Wayne Houchin – exclaimed “One of the hottest magicians on the planet” by Genii Magazine. Finally, I.B.M. attendees will be treated to Paul Gertner’s TEN FINGERS – A Play of Magic. Enough said.

Don’t wait, register today at http://www.magician.org/portal/en/node/6. Reserve your room at either the Norfolk Waterside Marriott (757-627-4200) or the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside (757-622-6664). Both hotels are within a block of each other. The Marriott is our host hotel. The Sheraton is right on the Elizabeth River with lovely waterside rooms. Be sure to tell them you are with the I.B. M. to get the special $99/night convention rate. Evening shows will be held at the beautiful Chrysler Hall Theater.

See you in Norfolk!

This year we are adding to the great changes from last year and improving using the suggestion from the registrants. The folks in charge have changed up the schedule at it is a great change in my opinion. Things don't start at the crack of dawn and lectures don't begin at midnight either! Instead they are starting each day with one of three events they call the Big Three. Yup, it's been moved from the afternoon to the morning to encourage you all to crawl out of bed and see either Paul Gertner's one man show "Ten Fingers", Wayne Houchin's very special lecture and show or a close up show with Dani DaOrtiz, John Bannon, Master Payne, Geoff Williams, Hannibal and David Acer. What a way to start the day! The contests, always a favourite, will be held in the afternoon to give them more prestige and to allow the acts to be awake and in their best form. Dealers have uncontested time to show you their latest and greatest and they have even designed a 24 hr hangout area to jam. Yes, there was a bar just feet away too. The evening shows are going to be spectacular. Joan Caesar has gathered together a talented group of young magicians to showcase, Chris Capeheart will be the star of the Gala Banquet show, Wayne and Fran Houchin have something extra special up their sleeves, Rich Bloch will once again host the Gold Medal show and George Saterial will close it with the act that gained him his gold medal and a few other choice illusions. Chip Romero is taking a break from nearly three decades at sea to show us what he does, Justin Flom who once had the Imaginary Theatre in Branson and most recently released Card Artistry will be sharing his newest and most popular material, along with Vlad Kryvonogov from the Ukraine and FISM award winner Arthur Trace ... We have lots more talent to announce and some very special extras ... keep checking in and don't forget to register.

Cheers,

Is there a reason that even though the convention is less than 4 months away, the web portal is not listing the talent as mentioned in posts above? There are conventions being held a couple of months later that have nailed down their talent.

I didn't list them all Payne...
I just started typing while running out of the house to catch another *** plane.
Yes, Master Payne, who was just featured in an awesome article in MAGIC will also be performing at the IBM this year...
I can name more too, but time to jump on another plane... long trip to Kuala Lumpur..

With this talent and the extraordinary events planned for this convention it will be a very special convention. The I.B.M. convention was reinvented in Dallas and is continuing to be upgraded for Norfolk. I.B.M. was the first convention and continues to be the best convention.
