The Incredible 30th New Zealand International Magicians Convention

Saturday June 5th - Monday June 7th 2010

News Update!

Dear [first name],

It's official - the 2010 New Zealand Magicians Convention has received the most number of overseas registrations ever for a New Zealand magic event.

Join us in June at the wonderful Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre in Auckland for the greatest lineup of magic talent ever assembled in this country.

Spotlight On Our Headliner : Paul Daniels

Paul Daniels' fame and achievements are not confined to the UK where he is a household name. The USA, Canada, Germany, Spain and Japan have all recognised him as a world-class entertainer. He has starred in his own hugely successful West End theatre show, headlined in Las Vegas and Broadway, as well as performing more unique magic on TV than any other magician in history.

From the moment he burst onto the TV networks his magic shows topped the ratings. A recent book on TV facts calls him the most successful TV magician of the 20th century. His creative genius enabled him to produce consistently stunning shows covering small, close-up effects to enormous outside broadcast illusions. The BBC One series "The Paul Daniels Magic Show" ran from 1979 to 1994 and regularly attracted audiences of 15 million in the UK, as well as being sold to 43 countries.

His TV career has not been limited to performing magic. As a presenter, he has hosted some of the most enjoyable game shows on TV. "Odd One Out," "Every Second Counts" and the highly rated "Wipe Out" have all had great success in the battle for viewers. There was also the wonderful "Wizbit" children's series, which featured a world of magic and wonder for the younger viewer. On radio, he was a BBC Radio 2 DJ for six months and for years presented a game show called "Dealing with Daniels." Always in high-demand as a celebrity guest on talk-shows, Paul's vibrant personality, love for magic and endless supply of stories and anecdotes from a lifetime in show-business make for riveting viewing.

With a reputation as one of the most popular society and show-business entertainers, Paul has appeared before The Royal Family, The Sultan of Brunei, The Sultan of Oman, Prince Rainier of Monaco, Barry White, John Major, The Duke and Duchess of Wessex, and countless others.

Paul will be performing his hour-long act in our evening shows, appearing in a very special career retrospective and Q+A, and presenting his exciting new masterclass "Inside the Mind of Paul Daniels" on Friday the 4th of June. During this optional event registrants have the chance to spend a full day with Paul as he shares secrets of technique, presentation and showmanship.
