The 2012 IBM Convention will be in my home town--Norfolk, Virginia--July 3 - 7, 2012. I look forward to meeting any Magic Café readers who attend! There are no details about performers or lecturers yet, but watch for announcements in _The Linking Ring_ or on the IBM website:

I will post updates as I receive them.

Hi "Excaliber"! I'm trying to talk my brother into attending. He is also from Chattanooga as of late, but, not a magician. Maybe we'll see you there.

I also posted this message in the I.B.M. forum :

The I.B.M. 84th Annual Convention will be held in Norfolk, Virginia on July 3rd – 7th, 2012. We are pleased to announce that the following outstanding close-up talent.

The outrageously funny Geoff Williams will entice audiences with his mind-blowing sleight-of-hand illusions. You won’t want to miss the amazing card magic of magician and author, John Bannon. From Spain, the incomparable Dani DaOrtiz will entertain you with his superb technique and crazy humor. Joining us from Canada is comedian and magician, David Acer (aka Doubting Dave on Mystery Hunters), who only has to look at you to make you laugh. The fact that he is also an accomplished magician is just icing on the cake. More than just an entertainer – Hannibal – captivates his audience with his combination of magic and storytelling. You won’t want to miss Wayne Houchin – exclaimed “One of the hottest magicians on the planet” by Genii Magazine. Finally, I.B.M. attendees will be treated to Paul Gertner’s TEN FINGERS – A Play of Magic. Enough said.

Don’t wait, register today at http://www.magician.org/portal/en/node/6. Reserve your room at either the Norfolk Waterside Marriott (757-627-4200) or the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside (757-622-6664). Both hotels are within a block of each other. The Marriott is our host hotel. The Sheraton is right on the Elizabeth River with lovely waterside rooms. Be sure to tell them you are with the I.B. M. to get the special $99/night convention rate. Evening shows will be held at the beautiful Chrysler Hall Theater.

See you in Norfolk!

Not much info on the IBM site.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

Slyhand you are very correct ... we have had some technical difficulties getting the "buttons" changed to permit the addition of information on the talent to the I.B.M. portal convention page. That has been corrected within the last week and talent updates will now be appearing on the IBM protal convention page. Meanwhile check the I.B.M. forum here on the Café and the IBM Face Book page. Talent for the Norfolk Convention is also being advertised in this month's The Linking Ring, Genii, and MAGIC.
The Norfolk Convention will continue many of the new ideas introducted at the last convention in Dallas as well as introducing new improvements. Shawn Farquhar has done a great job in booking outstanding talent - many of whom have not been seen at magic conventions. You will not want to miss the Norfolk Convention this July!

There will be 10 lectures or workshops. I will check with the Talent Chairman, Shawn Farquhar,and get back to you on the other lecturers. I can probably guess at who they will be from the talent that is booked but I don't want to give you incorrect information. I know that Wayne Houchin will be doing the Big Three lecture. The first lecture will be at 10 pm on Tuesday evening, July 3 and there will be lectures at 4 and 10 pm the next three days and one at 4 on Saturday, July 7. In addition, there are six special workshop sessions that you can select from. That is an entire year's worth of lectures at one convention !

It's worth it JUST for Dani DaOrtiz, who just crushes your soul with ingenuity--he makes you feel like a magical infant.

I just booked my room at the hotel. Now I need to register! I'll be doing so as a dealer (with a couple of brand new exclusives...) but will look forward to catching up with friends and also to 5 days of inspiring magic. Always loved the IBM conventions and this one looks to be another great one!
