Event Entertainment Roving Magic

Event Entertainment Roving Magic

When it comes to event entertainment roving magic, also called strolling magic, close-up walk around or sometimes street magic seems to be a very popular option for cocktail events, private or corporate dinner parties.

What are the advantages of a roving magician?

Your guests will socialize better because magic is a great conversation starter. People that don’t know each other will talk about what they have just seen. It is also a good way to get different groups together.

Your guests are given the opportunity to socialize, not just to see a performance.  Unlike a stand-up show or illusion show roving magic does not interrupt the flow of the event. It doesn’t require the attention of the entire audience but only of the group that is currently involved in the presentation.

The performance is personlized and your guests will have more fun getting their own show. Usually the magic happens in their hands.

There is no additional costs for a stage, lights and sound equipment. Roving magic can be done almost anywhere, under almost any conditions.

Finally it is possible to customize the effects to involve for example your company name and logo or message. For private events e.g. birthday parties or anniversaries a message can be included leaving the main person or couple with unique souvenir.

FAQ

How long is a performance? Typically 5-10 minutes per group

How many people can be you perform for? As a ballpark, at a cocktail event about 40-50 people can be covered in one hour. At a sit down dinner (tables of 1o) about 60-70 per hour

Can this also be used for a small group of 5-20 people? I would recommend to do a close-up show of about 25 minutes for the entire group.

Below are pictures taken at a recent performance. It was required to perform during the cocktail hour and later at the dinner in between courses.

JTI Trade Show Magician

Trade Show Magician TFWA Asia

Trade Show magician – TFWA Asia

Last week JTI engaged my service as trade show magician to attract conference attendees to their booth. Below the case study.

Client Name: Japan Tabacco International Group of Companies

Description: Manufacturer-independent provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for aircrafts, engines and components

Industry: Tobacco

Headquarter: Geneva Switzerland

Event: TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition and Conference

Audience:  2000 Conference Participants from

Challence: To create awareness of the Future of Brands Campaign. By stopping the attendees at the booth communicating the challenge and impact of extensive regulations on products.

The Objective: To invite as many attendees as possible to sign up for the news letter on brand ban information

Solution: To ensure a consistent flow of visitors at the booth n created a customized performance of about 10 min to attract and hold visitors at the booth until a representative was available to provide more detailed information. The presentation contained the main message and key points of the campaign and closed with a call to action (to leave the contact information and to pick up flyer with more details about the campaign).

Performance outline: Regulations make brands disappear by enforcing generic packaging of products e.g. cigarette packages in the UK. At the conference it was not possible to display tobacco brands so instead a dollar bill changed to a blank piece of paper. A selected card faded in stages to a blank card and 15 seconds of the memory of an attendee was erased. Illustrating the fact that if you can’t display the trade mark of a brand your customers will forget it.

Here some pics of the unique booth set up and my creepy partner.

Birthday Party Magician Singapore

Birthday Party Magician Singapore

Event: Oct 14 – Private events – 55 Guests
Venue: Timbre @ The Arts House
Package: Close Up – Roving Magic

I was booked to entertain at 40th birthday party. It was an outdoor event, the couple was from Australia and the party was themed to wear something related to Australia. I forgot to check with the organizer regarding the ‘dress code’ before the performance and felt slightly overdressed. The performance went great but I would have preferred to perform in Jeans and  T-Shirt…
