After dinner Shep Hyken delivered a motivational lecture on marketing your act and the evening's entertainment was Paul Vigil's one man show direct from the Mirage where he presents the same act at King's Ink twice a night every Wednesday.
Chats include a brief talk with Pete Poskiparta from Finland and Paul Draper. We had Peter and Paul and we were quite merry (sorry). Later in the day and in the dealers' room I caught up with Steve Brooks to talk about The Magic Cafe, its development and future plans. First time attendee Timothy Cripe talked about how much he was enjoying MINDvention. And surprise guest Gary Darwin held court seated in the dealers' room. Gary could go on forever talking about magic and cracking wise. He is a veritable fount of...well, something. And finally I caught up with organizers Danny Archer and Robert Allen who talked about the convention (statistics, plans, schedule, etc.)
