Schedule/performers subject to change ============================================
The 2006 MINDvention will take place from November 5th 7th at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For our 3rd convention we are working with a number of the stars of mentalism that have tons of exciting information to share with everyone. Booked performers are ;
John Riggs In addition to being a solid working pro, John is known to many mentalists for his many books and products for the professional performer.
Francis Menotti Francis will be remembered by all from 2005 with his Bulimia Prediction for 2006 he will be back with a late night Off Color Mentalism show that should be something else.
Greg Arce A clever inventor, Greg has put out four e-books and a book test called the Freestyle that is used by some of the leading performers. He will have some great new effects as well.
Docc Hilford Docc is a fantastic performer with a unique and unmatched style. His lecture and show will be a real treat for all. A true modern master.
Dennis Laub Denny was a performing mentalist for a number of years in the late 70's and 80's with an act called Mind Mirage. He is back with some great new books and some of his classics as well.
Rick Maue His performances and lecture is 2005 were convention highlights for many. Rick has a deep pool of material and he will be sure to have some great information to share with all.
Anton Zelman One of the highest paid corporate mentalist ever, will discuss the ins and outs of working and succeeding in the business world.
2005 was our first convention at the Palace Station and the new home of the MINDvention was a perfect fit. The hotel rooms are reasonably priced ($39 - $59 a night) and the hotel features an array of restaurants from fast food to fine dining choices.
One of the things that helps make this convention so special is what I call the Las Vegas factor. You never know who you will bump into at the MINDvention. Las Vegas is where many of the stars of magic live work and play; and many of them drop in, and we are always happy to see them.
Here are a few of the great people who have been at the MINDvention in the past; Teller, Banachek, Luke Jermay, Mark Strivings, Max Maven, Lee Earle, Alain Nu, Jon Stetson, Chuck Hickok, Bob Kohler, Gregory Wilson, Eugene Burger, Michael Close, Harvey Berg, Gary Darwin, Paul Harris, Brad Henderson, Jeff McBride, Eric Mead, Torkova, Steve Bedwell, Stan Allen, (my apologies if I left off your name).
We also have several jam shows, where the attendees (and usually some special guest magic celebrities) are invited to perform and show their stuff. These shows had some really great effects from mentalists from all over the world.
The MINDvention has always featured panel discussion. We bring together world class performers, a specific topic and allow the audience toAsk the Pros. The panel discussions are informative, and they always produce some great insights (and usually a few good laughs). We also feature a well-stocked dealers room with all the latest and greatest mentalism effects, books and DVDs you could ever want.
MINDvention 2006 will be three unbelievably great days of mentalism and we invite you to join us in the most magical city on Earth, Las Vegas!
