2200 magicians come together and 200 magicians will compete.
Not a word on this forum about it.
That says a lot about ...

Perhaps if they even once held FISM in the USA it might have better notoriety, also if the attempt is to make FISM anywhere near an Olympics renown or attract the very best in the world performers - at the very least there needs to be an upgrade and consistency in the criteria and uniformity of the judging.

Very disappointing program planning of Busan FISM. Today hundreds of registrants could not get in the room having close-up contest. Meanwhile there is screen broadcast the event. Worse still, at the same time slot there is NO other program (except dealer booths). Same thing happened to the one man shows yesterday. People started lining up to one man show almost 2 hours before it starts.
A novice't reflection: I like watching my audience's jaws drop, but sadly in reality I'm just too busy to enjoy it. Smile

I have been to three FISM and always had too many programs to choose from. This is the first time we go back to hotel room in the middle of the day because of having nothing to do.

From what I know the Korean organizer faced many unexpected difficulties to bring FISM Busan this time, one regular FISM guest performer once said to me, 'No FISM is perfect.' Yes the program run down this time indeed loosen than previous Rimini FISM, but then audience will feel not too packed and jam and won't miss other stuff going on at the same time simultaneously.

However, the number of dealers and choice of dealers from different countries did disappointing, besides the layout of venue BEXCO did not provide a read Magic Salon atmosphere where magicians can jam and share tricks and ideas in between.

Besides that all, the auditorium with a superb view for most audience not like flat floor with head block view of Rimini. Stage without fancy TV show LED Light, the best lighting for Stage Contestants, brilliant one man show with some of the best magicians on Earth. Plus Legendary magician - Maestro Juan Tamariz one man show twice and sudden magic salon in the last day afternoon fool more than hundreds of audiences with nothing but only a deck of cards. I will say this FISM is much, much better than my expectations.

Looking back 3 years ago Close Up Grand Prix Shin Lim created a new brand of card magic with smoke and cards, now we have Eric Chien who advanced it by able to do a CG type of close up act LIVE, it just keep elevate the standard of magic quantum leap. Who knows what will be in the year 2021?
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.
