The Washington Symposium on Magic History


Ken Trombly has announced that the Washington Symposium on Magic History will be held next spring, April 25-27, 2013 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in North Bethesda, MD.

A memorable weekend includes:

  • A variety of unusual and provocative speakers and topics
  • A huge dealer’s room, teeming with vintage magic collectibles
  • A unique and exclusive Library of Congress Magic Exhibit on Friday April 26, featuring numerous highlights from the Houdini and McManus-Young collection
  • An auction of vetted magic collectibles (apparatus, books, posters, ephemera etc), something for everyone!
  • And a SURPRISE or two that is top secret and up the organizers’s sleeve for now!

Special convention room rates of $109 night, with free wifi in all rooms and discounted parking for all. This is a four star hotel, conveniently located near the easy-to-use Metro system.

Bring your significant other so you can play tourist. April is the best time to visit DC, with pleasant weather and the newly bloomed cherry blossoms.
