Still Eating Cards
Last weekend I performed at my residency at the Heidrick & Struggles Xmas Party. The new party room at the Hyatt is a great venue for parties and events. Below some pictures from the performance.

Close Up Magic at Alice in Wonderland Event
Oct 18 I was performing at the IQVIA annual Dinner and Dance, themed ‘A Night in Wonderland’. All the guests were wearing a theme related costume. Since I perform mainly with playing cards I faced an ideal situation using guests dressed up as playing cards in my effect.
Entrance to the venue:
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
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.

Last weekend I was performing a roving magic Marathon at the Singapore 7 rugby tournament. 8 hours of magic in 2 days. It was a lot of fun and just when I thought I would not handle playing cards for the next couple of days, I received a message from a friend of mine that a famous close-up magician from the US was in Singapore and a session would take place at a hotel close to my apartment. Well, my wife knows that I am obsessed. I spent another 3 hours at the session. I just love what I do.
