If you think the website wasn't friendly wait until you try to book a hotel. Regarding the FISM card to my knowledge this is the first time they do this — I did not go to Korea but I have been to 12 FISMs in the past (the last 7 prior to Korea all in a row). FISM has changed a lot since Eric Eswin —past president of FISM— converted the European meeting into a "wide world" affair. Traditionally FISM were the European societies, USA, Canadian and Japanese. In 2009 the meeting went to China making a lot of other members upset about the option —the Chinese Government was pulling the strings after the Olympic Games of 2008 and they ran the meeting in Beijing. After this, there was no European club or group that wanted to put on the next FISM in 2012. Blackpool became the "forced choice" as they already host a large meeting on a yearly basis and they know how to handle large crowds. In 2015 the Italians hijacked the meeting. In Rimini the meeting ran with a bias towards the Italian TV and alienated many of the performers. I think the Canadians are going to do a good job and I think so far the organization seems good. They don't have an "ax to grind" and they want to do a good job as this the first FISM in North America. I am going and I have already made my hotel reservations! For some of you that have never been, I'd like to say: "The essence of FISM is the competitions". Go to these both Stage and Close-up. They will have a great exhibit with more than 100 dealers and these are great! The galas are too long; some of these are 3 and 4 hours long with intermission. The lectures... to me you can see this guys at different meetings unless it is Tamariz —always go to his lectures or close-up shows! The same for some of the legends in Magic. It's the greatest "smorgasbord" in magic so choose well.

See you there,
