Lior is now confirmed... we have made most of the lecture spots a full two hours to allow them to fully explore their topics... a revised schedule is below... Biss will not be at this year's event... maybe next year?...

Sean Taylor's presentation last year on the business side of mentalism was very well received and we are fortunate that Rick Maue will be sharing some of his ideas on that topic this year (details below schedule)... even though we have a guaranteed room rate until 10/16, I recommend that you check the Palace web site and Priceline as well as sometimes you can get a real bargin...

Marketing Mentalism


So, now you are a mentalistbut how, and where, are you actually going to make money?

Rick Maue began working successfully for paying audiences in 1979, and at MINDvention 2008, he will be teaching some of the real secrets of his success.

Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

Understanding (and living up to) Your Own Value

Avoiding the Typical Pitfalls of Mentalism

The Difference between Sales & Marketing

The Good and Bad Things about Being an Entertainer

A Bit of Truth about Branding

Character vs. Caricature

Finding and Understanding Your Markets

Creating a Real Niche for Yourself

Creating the Successful Illusion of Being Different (a.k.a. Separating Yourself from the Competition)

All of these points, and more, will be covered during this special session. In addition, Rick will also be very happy to answer any specific questions about how, and why, he has marketed himself in his specific way.

Now, please dont think that this will be one of those marketing programs in a can that will supposedly work for everyone. It certainly is not, and to be truthful, such programs are about as real as the Loch Ness Monsterwhich means that only fools believe in them.

However, what this session will be is a specific series of ideas that have worked very successfully in the real world for one specific personand if you take the time to understand just a few of the points, you may be able to successfully adapt some of them to your own business plan.

Yo,

Flying to Philly Sunday to watch the Phillies win the World Series...

BIG NEWS FLASH - Internationally reknowned mentalist Marc Salem will attend MINDvention and present a lecture/ teach-in called "Why I don't lecture to mentalists or magicians"...

We are very fortunate that Marc will be joining us... he will fly to Vegas on Monday after he does a gig Sunday night...

The schedule is now jammed to bursting and the fifth MINDvention I predict will be the place to be on 11/9 - 11/11

PS Also expect to see Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger and Ross Johnson making the scene... plus a special interview with Keith Barry!
