If you are thinking of attending the 2006 World Magic Seminar in Vegas - February 19-23 - and have not yet booked your hotel room do NOT delay doing so. The block of convention rate room held at the Orleans for the WMS will be released on January 22 and there is no guarantee of a room at the Orleans after that date!
The 2006 WMS features a number of new events such as the AOI Film Festival with prizes for the winning magic films - a historic first for magic, Dick Koornwinder's Tribute to Fred Kaps lecture, the Magic Dinner Theater Welcome Party, Close-Up Competition, and Farewell Party. In conjunction with the WMS but presented as a separate event on the day before the WMS is the Las Vegas version of the New York CoinSeminar. Roth, Rubinstein, Latta, and Gallo are not only some of NY's finest coin magicians, they are world famous coin magicians and the NY CoinSeminar III is their first time anywhere other than the East Coast. Kainoa Harbottle will be a special guest at the CoinSeminar III and there will be a special mystery guest as well. The NY fab four will also be appearing at the WMS. Add to this over 30 dealers, the International Stage Competition, another stage show, the Teen Stage Contest, Close-Up Shows, Encore Benefit show, Bowling tournament with the stars, lectures, the Teens Only special weekend, and other events and you have a convention in Vegas that is not to be missed.
