They are already planning next year’s event, and if you can, do plan to attend as you won’t be disappointed and the hotel is right by the airport. And boy were the BBQ ribs good! Best I ever had three blocks from the hotel!

Stevens Magic Convention Schedule…

We’re pluggin’ right along as we have for 40 years, attending magic conventions all over the world and seeing our good friends and clients. This year has been no exception with already five conventions under our belt and it’s only August.

We are very much looking forward to October and Martha & my trip to Europe where we will attend the famous Swedish convention, organized by El Duco and his good Swedish friends, and directly after, we will attend the famous Italian Magic Club Convention organized by the President, Domenico Dante and his committee. Two European events back-to-back. Some of the world’s finest magicians are in these two countries! We’re looking forward to a memorable time at both events, with a side trip to Venice! (Martha’s favorite place in the world.)

Domenico Dante, Joe and El Duco
