It will be an exciting hub and gathering place for registrant with new fun things to experience and see some terrific dealers are already on board, with more on the way. You'll want to see what they have to offer!

7. Themed Events and Parties. From our opening night event to closing night party we're spending more money and effort on creating a fun environment with food and decor!

6. Prestigious Contests. Many contestants have agreed that the I.B.M. Gold Cups Contest and I.B.M. Gold Medal Contest are the best run contests in magic. It just got better!

4. Better Close-up Conditions. The Close-up rooms for Contests and for the booked talent are better than ever. More intimate. Better set-up. The best close-up rooms ever! We're talking an intimate black-box style space with sets and lighting...the works!

3. Special Interest Group Sessions. You can choose your specific area of interest and attend a variety of informative lectures and workshops based on what YOU want to learn. And that's in addition to all of the General Sessions and Lectures!

2. Talent Line-up. We're still holding this close to the chest...but we guarantee you'll see a fantastic line-up of some amazing magic stars and some of the most exciting acts you've never seen at a magic convention before. Plus, each of the stage shows will be packaged in an exciting new way....More on that later.

1. Dallas Sheraton is Ideal. The room rate of $99 is the lowest it has been in years. All of the convention activities are centrally located and just an elevator ride from your room. And the beautiful historic Majestic Theatre is just a short walk through the park (literally) from the hotel.

And about those youth activities...For the first time in I.B.M. Convention history, the International Brotherhood of Magicians is assembling some of our most talented junior members to perform in a professionally produced cabaret show at the Dallas 2011 Convention. We're seeking talented performers between the ages of 7 and 17 to star in this show.

The I.B.M. Convention is undergoing a major overhaul, and this show which will showcase our best young magicians will be performed 4 times during the convention as part of our new Fab 4 Events. Performers will be compensated with cash based on their number of performances up to a full complimentary registration. In addition they will be billed as featured talent which will be a great resume builder. They'll also have the bragging rights of being onstage with a world renowned magician. Not to mention the honor of performing for so many of their peers.

If you are an interested young member, or you know of one, and you think this might be for you, we'd love to see your talent.
