You know, with so many "If you could only do one trick for the rest for your life?" kind of threads, why not have one for conventions?

If you could only go to one- but you get to go every year, which one would it be?

MINDvention. I've been to many others including the ones listed above and this is the best. Optimum size and ability to interact with THE workers. Good lectures and even better sessions in the pub.

I'm pretty biased myself but I would have to say the Winter Carnival of Magic. I've been a part of this convention for 35 out of 38 years and we have a great group of people that attend year after year. You have to have great shows, lectures, dealers, etc. but it's the people who attend that make a convention. (We just finished the 2012 Winter Carnival of Magic and it went really well.)

I'm with you Michael. I would have said a tie between Winter Carnival and Magi-Fest, but alas, they have decided to close Magi-Fest for good, so for me, it's Winter Carnival.

Kidabra International because it focuses on family and kid entertainment, which is what I do. There is no other convention or conference like it here in the USA.

Kutztown, PA is easily the best bang for the buck for a one day magic convention. They usually have four big name acts, and an all you can eat dinner.

Kramien's Magic Jamboree. Sadly though this is its final year as well.

So from now on my favorite convention is any one that will hire me to speak, lecture or perform at it Smile

And I agree with David. 4F is such an incredible gathering of many of the world's best close-up magicians. It's an amazing three days.
Cheers,
Steve
