- 28th FISM World Championship of Magic UPDATE (APRIL 2021)
At the 27th FISM World Championship of Magic, in South Korea, the FISM International President Domenico Dante revealed a historic announcement about the upcoming 28th host city. "Here is the vote. Spain 180 votes. Quebec City 232 votes." Huge applause! It was a proud day for Canadian magicians and an important day in the history of the art of magic that brings the FISM (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques) to Quebec City, Quebec, Canada in July 2022. What makes this decision so significant? Since its founding in 1948, the FISM World Championship of Magic has never appeared in North America or hosted by any North American magician society. The multi-day magician's convention and competition are the most prestigious globally-- representing over 80,000 magicians in 106 countries. The upcoming 2022 FISM in Quebec City, Canada, will bring over 3000 magicians and 150+ contestants from over 50 countries. Magicians recognize FISM awards as the highest honours in the magic industry. Magic competitors compete in 8 categories—each one seeking the title of FISM Grand Prix Award Winner-- a prize not consistently awarded. However, before magicians can compete at the FISM World Championship of Magic they must first qualify in a regional contest organized by a FISM recognized magician society. Pandemic Impacts and Updates Like all events, the pandemic has impacted the FISM World Championship of Magic. Initially scheduled for 2021, the FISM World Championship of Magic rescheduled for 2022. Many other regional qualifying conventions worldwide, including the North American FISM Qualifying Championship, have also been moved one year. Rescheduled FISM Dates The FISM World Championship of Magic's new rescheduled date is July 25 -July 30, 2022, and the North American FISM Qualifying Championships from September 30 to October 2021. Both events are hosted in the same city by the same organizers, Renée-Claude Auclair and Pierre Hamon. Renée-Claude and Pierre Hamon are no strangers to producing magic events, together they have produced Le Festival De Magie / Quebec Magic Festival since 2011. I chatted with Renée-Claude for our Magicians Talking Magic Podcast, and she shared essential updates for the FISM World Championships of Magic and the North American Qualifying Championship.

- These Las Vegas Magic Shows Are Reopening (April 2021)
Restrictions are beginning to change in Nevada. What does that mean for the return of live entertainment and specifically magic shows in Las Vegas reopening in 2021? Magicians and magic shows are a big part of Las Vegas and most have scheduled reopenings. Many magician's shows are opening as soon as April 12. There is one notable Las Vegas magician who has not announced reopening and all online events are marked "CANCELLED." Las Vegas has more than 100 casinos. Many of the casinos including MGM Grand, Caesars, Planet Hollywood and New York - New York have been open for gaming operations since June. Some casinos like Encore Resort and the Rio All-Suites Hotel have chosen to open only on weekends. While social-distant gaming has resumed, live entertainment has been almost entirely shut down. A few larger Las Vegas showrooms attempted to open during the pandemic, but due to restrictions, they closed. David Copperfield’s 750 seat showroom at the MGM Grand opened briefly in November 2020 but closed when restrictions were reduced to a 50-person audience cap. 50% Audience Capacity or MAX 250 People Business capacity changes in Nevada were recently announced that bring optimism for a safe return to Las Vegas shows-- but don’t expect all shows to return this spring. Larger cast production shows in Vegas are not expected to return until later in the year. The new business capacity rules allow for a return to 50% capacity or a maximum audience size of 250 people, whichever is smaller. David Copperfield, Penn & Teller, Matt Franco are just a few of the magicians set to open this April. Many Vegas showrooms like Copperfeilds at the MGM have booth-style seating and could see a rise to 375 seating capacity soon. Criss Angel's newly opened rock concert-style magic show Mindreak at Planet Hollywood was suspended and no new dates have been announced. Criss recently announced he's working on an all-new show that combines electronic music and theatre. The City of Las Vegas tweeted a “Roadmap to Reopening” on March 14 2021 that outlined their steps leading to reducing further restrictions. Health and Public Safety Changes All casinos and resorts have been making safety changes increasing their sanitization efforts including hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations throughout their properties. Mask-wearing is mandatory in public and all hotels and casinos must follow Health and Public Safety guidelines. Let’s take a look at the Las Vegas Magic Shows Reopening in April 2021.
