Is anyone else going to The Event/ Session at Heathrow in January?

David Berglas is confirmed for The Event now. Eeeeek! Smile

Yup, I'll be there! I've been wondering why no one else has posted about it.
The lineup is solid, the one thing I'm still wishing for, is a Michael Weber surprise appearance. It's still going to be great, with or without Weber. Smile

I'm still hoping James Brown will turn up!

It should be a really good covention though. Smile

Are you there mostly for the Event, or the Session?
Magician or mentalist (I guess I should say mind reader, since this is mostly UK!) ?

I am very excited about both, but for different reasons. I think the line up for both conventions look amazing.

I'm quite new to performing magic (after a long time learning the theory and the methods behind effects). So I'm sure I'll have lots to learn from both. Smile

How about you?

I'm there mostly for the magic, but I think I'll get more bang for my buck from the mentalism portion. It was only recently I started getting interested in mentalism, so it's a nice bonus for me Smile.

Yes, exactly.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing? I'm thinking David Berglas and Richard Wiseman. Smile

On the magic side, probably Helder and Gabi Pareras. Most of what I've seen from Helder is always great, and I've never seen Gabi but all the Spanish magicians praise his work.
On the mentalism side, David Berglas and Jermay. Also Max Maven was supposed to perform his full act at the Genii convention but had a medical emergency, so I'm looking forward to his lecture.
I was sad to read recently that Richard Wiseman is no longer performing magic.

And of course, looking forward to the dealer's room. Smile

Save me a seat in the lurking area in the back.
Actually, the view is much better up front- we can still lurk from up front.

Looks like they added a few more lecturers for the flash talks (including Weber!).

Okay. Maybe front to middle lurking. As long as I'm still lurking! Smile

How did you see the bit about the new speakers?

Any idea of a schedule yet? I'm wondering what time it gets underway Smile

Yes, it's all in the website. The Flash Talks time slot previously had no names attached but now it does: http://www.sessionconvention.com/schedule/
In the performers section, the last three performers were recent additions: http://www.sessionconvention.com/#performers

I'm going to be there as early as possible every day, regardless of the start time. You'll probably find people performing all over. Smile

I am also going to The Event/Session convention. It will be my first magic convention ever. I am so excited.

The same to me. I still read about theory and methods more than I practice/perform. I hope the convention will kick me up.

It is my first convention too. I'm really pleased that I won't be the only newbie. Smile

Not long to wait now!

Second convention for me, so still a convention newbie. I also stopped performing for a bit to focus on other stuff, so I'm getting back in the groove.

Wow, so this is your first convention, and then you get to go to Blackpool? Wish I could make it to Blackpool, I've heard great things!

Yes, I thought I'd go to a couple while I was feeling enthusiastic. Smile

I'm really nervous though. But I'm sure I'll be fine when I'm there...
