About

David Sandy & Bill Smith invite you to explore the rich magic history of the Twin Cities!  This event is MUCH MORE than a conference on magic collecting and history… it’s an event like you’ve never experienced before!  In addition to presentations on a wide variety of magic collecting and historical topics, you’ll also experience incredible performances by some of the finest magicians in the world!

Presentations on Harry Jansen/Dante, Frederick Bancroft, Tenyo Magic Company, Eagle Magic Company, C.A. George Newmann, Carl Waring Jones/Greater Magic, plus The Chavez College of Magic, Cardini, The Great Nicola and many more to come!

The Magic Collectors Expo is a gathering of people who collect magic props, equipment and tricks; magic posters and ephemera; books and other publications; automata and mechanical devices; and more.  In addition, the Expo is a convening of people who collect great stories about our art… and love to share them with other like-minded collectors and historians.

The history of magic and paraphernalia, along with many never-before-seen performances, is a center focus of the three-day conference.

You’ll enjoy several special SURPRISE events, an expanded dealer room, incredible exhibits and an unbelievable dinner and show in a gorgeous supper club venue… see magic performances like they used to be! This event is limited to the first 200 registrants.

The Magic Collectors Expo is produced by David Sandy and Bill Smith.
