General

When and where is Magic-Con 2014?
Magic-Con 2014 will be held from April 10th through the 13th in San Diego, California at the Doubletree Hotel San Diego. The conference will begin on Friday morning; however, we suggest that everyone arrive on Thursday afternoon to pick up their registration packets as well as join us in kicking off the event with a killer reception party. The conference will go on until late Sunday afternoon/early evening. If you must fly out on Sunday, we recommend booking a later flight.

Who is Magic-Con for?
Magic-Con is for anyone interested in the art, history, and science of magic.

How can I attend Magic-Con?”
To attend Magic-Con, you must register. Space is limited, so it is highly recommended that you register online before the conference.

What do I need to bring with me to Magic-Con?
Bring an open mind and anything you’d like to share. Your registration packet will be waiting for you to pick up upon arriving. Make sure that the name you give us is the name you used to register with. If you received your registration through a transfer, we should have this information on file. However, it never hurts to bring a printed confirmation page or receipt.

How can I volunteer at Magic-Con?
Magic-Con will be seeking volunteers to help regulate and facilitate the day-to-day activities of the conferences. Volunteers must still register for the conference, however. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and tell us how you would like to help out.

How do I unsubscribe from the Magic-Con Newsletter?
In the footer of every e-mail we send, there is a link to Unsubscribe. Clicking this will remove your contact information from our database and you will no longer receive our Newsletter.
