We really need to stress to you the importance of securing your position at the convention.

We have registrations from a large number of NZ magicians who don't typically attend conventions, and a RECORD NUMBER of Australian magicians making the trip to New Zealand for the convention.

We are also starting to hear back from people disappointed because they haven't been paying attention to our website, newsflashes or ezyne updates and have had to be put onto competition waiting lists because they are full. To be crystal-clear :

- Almost all of our competition spaces are now FULL, details of what's available are on the convention website.

- The optional Paul Daniels Masterclass on Friday the 4th of June is ALMOST SOLD OUT.

- The Waipuna Hotel have set aside a certain amount of rooms at our special registrant-only rate - there is a very real chance that these rooms are also going to be TOTALLY BOOKED.


If you haven't already done so, please download your registration form, fill it out and send it to us ASAP so we can enter you into the convention.

You DO NOT have to pay the full balance at this stage - a deposit is fine. Pay whatever you want to pay, it doesn't worry us. But please GET YOUR FORM IN SO THAT YOU AREN'T DISAPPOINTED WHEN YOU MISS OUT.
