As a corporate magician, my job is to harness this powerful force of magic and use it to create emotional links between a customer and a product, or to communicate information in a memorable way. Magic allows me to do that. People always remember what they see far longer than what they hear.

We had a 10 x 10 foot booth, while our competitor’s booth included a HUGE forty-foot display along with – you guessed it – the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Even with our small booth, we were awarded the prestigious BEST OF SHOW because of our captivating and entertaining message.

It’s not about how much money you spend or the pizzazz you create – it’s about connecting with your intended audience with a compelling and interesting message that’s presented in a fun and memorable way. This fundamental approach wins out EVERY time.
