“Get Ready” for Indy!

"Get Set" as the S.A.M. will hold their 88th annual convention in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 13 -16, 2016. "Indy" will be a fantastic location for magicians and their families to gather and see the best performers, lectures, and magical artists.

S.A.M. 2015 Philadelphia was a huge success, both magically and financially. Attendees said it was the "most fun convention I ever attended," and our concept to provide a Magic vacation will continue at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, 350 W Maryland St., Indianapolis, IN 46225.

Beginning Tuesday afternoon, July 12, young magicians will gather to learn from the best as we present the S.Y.M. Magic Jam. An S.Y.M. mom says, "You have all outdone yourselves. I was so impressed at how much the kids were included on everything. This was the first convention that has been like that. I can't wait for Indy." This event is free for all youth 7 to 17 with their regular paid convention, currently only $160.

Arrive early to see the Tuesday night not-too-late night lecture and a surprise program. In Philadelphia, it was the much-talked-about Past-Presidents show. You will not want to miss this bonus event.

Magic lectures, shows and sessions are being finalized but the S.A.M. always has the best and newest talent. More acts than any other convention went on to high acclaim at the 2015 FISM competition. Hector Mancha who performed on “The Magic of Spain” show won FISM’s Grand Prix for Stage Magic.

Special events are planned for families and magicians in Indy. In 2016, it is the home to the 100th race of the Indy 500 and the capital of Indiana, celebrating its 200th year. Everyone at the Marriott is eager to please and the city is visitor friendly and a breeze to navigate by foot or car.

The S.A.M. will honor Stan Allen and his 25 years at the helm of Magic Magazine. Stan is a 30 year S.A.M. member and the very first producer of the popular Stars of Tomorrow show in 1992. He is one of the most influential figures in magic in the past 50 years and he is a longtime friend of the S.A.M.

Speaking of friends, all your friends will be there and we will allow ample time to meet and session with them, stroll through the array of international magic dealers in the Kellar Exhibitors Hall, and make new life-long friends.

It's not too early to "Start Your Engines." Registration is currently $160 for S.Y.M. members and $260 for S.A.M. members or their spouse. But with a $60 deposit, now till Feb 15, 2016, we will hold your reservation and assure your best seating. Nightly rates at the Marriott Downtown are $119 a night.
