Nope that’s just what we pay for stuff in Europe. By comparison virtually everything is way more expensive over here.

You guys just don’t know how good you have it. Smile


You're not joking. I spent a month throughout Europe recently, and gasoline is approaching the equivalent of $8 US/ gallon. Yikes! That explains why there are so many tiny cars over there. Wondering when the US will follow suit.


Well, I've done the maths on the registration fee, the hotel, and the flight, and it's virtually the same price for me to fly from the uk to vegas for mindvention as it is for me to go to this one on my doorstep, so I think I'll choose the desert this time around.

Hi guys,

Thanks a lot for your interest in this event! We're really looking forward to it and are absolutely excited about the presenters that will lecture.

As for the costs: we're currently in further negotiations with the event location because we found a way that we don't have to rent the event technology from the hotel. Bringing all sound, lighting and projector technology on our own could reduce the room rental noticeable ... and we could redirect the savings achieved to the registration fees (all those who already registered could expect a partial refund obviously).
Within the next two days we'll know details - but we're full of confidence! Smile

Stay tuned!

Yes, we intend to make this an annual event. But as it is an All-European convention we tried to locate it as near to Europe's centre as possible for all interested attendees.
So if you take a map of Europe and search for its centre, ... you will find that Cologne is pretty near by! Smile

Cologne is an awesome city. Spent 4 months there while working in Germany on the Geller show. Easy access to so many other areas too.

With the original pricing - wasn't there a $50 gap between the earlybird and the later registration? Or am I remembering wrong?

Price goes down, discount goes down. Makes perfect sense.

I think it's awesome that the people organizing this are giving discounts they are getting from the hotel back to their customers and not increasing their winnings.

Will there be translation from English to German? I honestly hope not. I guess everyone in mentalism has sufficient knowledge of English. A lot gets lost in translation anyway... not only information but also time. It would be nice to get two hours worth of information in a two hour lecture.

No. Even if hosted in Germany this is an international convention and the common language is English.
Some of those potentially interested may regret this; but as you stated correctly the disadvantages of a translation procedure outweigh from our point of view. So all lectures, workshops, panel talks and discussions as well as the shows will be in English language only without translation.

Pleased to announce that Pete Poskiparta (aka Peter Burnside) will be presenting at the Summit. Peter has performed as a professional mentalist for over 15 years. He is one of the most sought-after performers for corporate events in Finland and scandinavian countries. As a performer, he is charismatic,and he really knows how to captivate his audience, whether big or small, domestic or international.

Peter has done over 70 episodes of mentalism for radio but his career on the radio, however, extends far beyond this, starting at the end of the 1990s when he worked on the radio as a sports commentator and to hosting other radio programs. He really knows how radio works and what kind of material works on radio and why. How to get the best out of your radio performances? Peter will tell you Top 10 tips for radiomentalism.

Had a chat with Danny yesterday. What a great convention this will be. The "names" he has lined up already are fantastic. You won't be disappointed.

Are mentalists heads that heavy, they have to be supported?

Have a look at the avatars of Stephen Young, Danny Archer and John Linden...

Couldn't resist...
