When is MAGIC Live?

August 6–9, 2023

How much is a registration and what does it include?

Registration to MAGIC Live is $465 per person.

Each registration includes tickets to all performances, access to all sessions, lectures, special events, parties, and our dealer room, as well as all giveaway items.

Is MAGIC Live more expensive than other magic conventions?

While registration to MAGIC Live is a little higher than other conventions, our hotel room rate is considerably lower ($48 per night plus resort fee and tax).

When you take the combined cost of our registration and hotel, and compare it to the cost of other conventions’ registration and hotel, you’ll find that MAGIC Live is actually less expensive.

And when you consider the quality of production and value received, MAGIC Live is one of the best bargains of the year!

Are there payment options available?

Registration can either be purchased in full or spread out over five monthly installments ($93 + $2 fee).

Why should I sign up early?

The last six MAGIC Lives were sold out months in advance. By registering early, you guarantee yourself a spot.

Also, choices for show times will be made available in order of registration.

When does online registration open?

General Registration opens on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at 10 a.m. (Pacific Time).

How can I register with my friends, so we all have the same show schedule?

Our exclusive registration system allows you to sign up either as an Individual or as a Group.

Being part of a Registration Group guarantees that you and your friends will all have the same show schedule, yet allows each of you to make your own financial arrangements. And only one of you needs to go online to get it all started.

For additional information about registering as a Group, go to Registration.

What information do I need to be able to register?

If you’re registering as an Individual, you will need to provide your email address, phone number, mailing address, date of birth, and valid credit card information.

If you’re creating a Group, you will need all of the above for yourself and anybody else in the Group that you will be paying for. In addition, you will need the name and email address for each person you want to invite to join the group, but who will make their own financial arrangements.

For additional information about registering as an Individual, go to Registration.

When does MAGIC Live begin and end?

The opening celebration kicks off Sunday evening, August 6, 2023. Registration is open throughout that day so you can get signed up and settled in.

The convention will end late Wednesday evening, August 9, 2023. If you do have to take a flight out Wednesday night, we suggest you book it after midnight. Of course, we would encourage you to spend Wednesday night at the hotel to relax and enjoy all the time possible with new and old friends.

Where is the convention being held?
MAGIC Live will be held at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
When can I book my hotel room?

Our discounted room block at The Orleans is now open! You can book your reservation online or by calling the hotel at (702) 365-7111. You will need our group code: MAGIC23.

What is your health and safety policy?

MAGIC Live will follow the public health policies set by the State of Nevada, Clark County, and The Orleans Hotel. Currently (as of 11-1-22), there are no mandates in place for masks, vaccines, testing, or social distancing.

What is the last day to receive a refund on my registration?

Your registration is 90% refundable through June 1, 2023. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to process refunds after June 1, 2023. We will, however, facilitate the transfer of your registration to a person of your choice prior to the event (7:30 p.m., Sunday, August 6, 2023).

How do I transfer my registration?

Transfers from the Original Registrant to a Replacement Registrant must be made through the MAGIC Live office prior to the start of the event (7:30 p.m., Sunday, August 6, 2023).

To initiate a transfer, send us an email and provide the following information for the Replacement Registrant: legal name, badge name (if different), phone number, email address, mailing address, and date of birth

We will send you both an email once the transfer is complete.

When will you be announcing who's booked at MAGIC Live?

We believe that mystery and surprise are a big part of magic, and a big part of this unique event. So we will not be releasing the names of presenters or performers prior to the convention.

Do your theaters have assigned seating?

Over the years, we’ve learned that a great seat for one person might be a not-so-great seat for another. So we have a seating system based on the boarding passes used on Southwest Airlines.

Basically, each attendee is assigned a seating group, with Group A entering first, then Group B.

Seating group assignments will be made in order of registration, as will first choice of show times for performances.

When will I get to pick my showtimes?

Emails asking you to select showtimes will be sent out closer to the event. We normally start the process in June.

Are junior magicians welcome to attend MAGIC Live?

Junior magicians are absolutely welcome at MAGIC Live!

Please keep in mind that The Orleans Hotel is an entertainment/casino business governed by the laws of the State of Nevada and licensed by the State of Nevada Gaming Control Board. It is against the law for any minor (under the age of 21) to loiter in, or near, any gaming area.

Also, minors are not allowed to check-in or occupy a hotel room without the accompaniment of at least one person 21 years of age or older.

Is there a non-magician or junior registration rate?
There is only one rate for registration, $465.
Can I buy a day pass or tickets to the shows?

Because MAGIC Live regularly sells out, we are not able to sell day passes or show tickets a la carte.

Can I buy a pass to visit the dealer room?

We consider the Dealer Room one of the “shows” of the convention, thus we require a registration to visit it. We do not have Dealer Room badges available.

How big is the dealer room?

Our 17,000 sq. ft. dealer room offers over 50 companies demonstrating the finest, newest, and most exciting magic routines, props, and theatrical accessories available today.

How do I sign up to be a dealer?

For information about the dealers room, please contact us.

What should I do if I require special assistance?

We aim to make MAGIC Live as enjoyable as possible for all attendees. If you have any special needs, please contact us.
