Every two years, magic historians and magic collectors from around the world meet up in an European city at the end of Summer, to share their research, augment their collection, and to talk about magic and magicians of times gone by.
From 24 to 26 August 2017, the European Magic History Conference will be held in Torino, Italy!
This is the first of regular newsletters with updates on the event. In this one:
Registrations are Open
The Conference has always been an intimate event, with a small number of selected participants and we want to continue to keep it like this. This year, the number of participants is limited to 130 people. This allows everybody to enjoy the lectures, the visits to magical places in Torino, two dinners (all included in the price), and to socialize. Registration for the event is EUR 250, payable with credit card (with PayPal: you don’t need to be registered) or via bank transfer (Euro only). The price will increase in May 2017, so early registration is recommended. To register:
Where will the Conference be?
The convention will be held in Torino, Italy, the first capital of Italy, and a wonderful baroque city, located at the North-West, within easy reach from all Europe. Torino has also one of the best Italian Magic Clubs, the Circolo Amici della Magia di Torino (CADM) and the Conference will be held in their new headquarters. The address is:
10152 Torino (TO)
How to Reach Torino?
Torino is easily accessible from all Europe: the airport Sandro Pertini has direct flights from Amsterdam, Berlin, Birmingham, Bristol, Bruxelles, Dublin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, Lisbon, London (3 airports), Madrid, Manchester, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Rome, Valencia, and many more cities.
If you prefer to travel by train, Torino Porta Nuova train station has direct connections to Paris and Lyon and is only a short hop from Milano Centrale, connected to the rest of Europe.
If you prefer to drive, Torino can be reached easily from France and Switzerland and, of course, from all over Italy.
If you live in the USA or outside Europe, you will probably have to fly to Rome or Milan and then you will be able to easily reach Torino by train or with an internal flight (from Rome only).
