I really enjoyed the expo, and it appeared to be a success. I met three magicians whom I had never
met before - pros at the top of their game. A fantastic, fun learning experience. Cons: There
weren't enough seats for the mini-lectures, but I realize that was due to a space restraint. If you
happen to be in a bigger room, add 3 or 4 more rows of chairs. Also, name badges would have been
nice - even the stick on ones. I saw a lot of people I recognized but didn't know their names.

I did some amazing magic with some of the best magicians I know if you do magic go to this. I met a
lot of new friends and I performed by the greatest. This is one of the coolest things you can do!

This live event was awesome. Well structured and well paced. I'm sure alot of work was put into this
even. I look forward to the next event in Louisville. Great to talk with a variety of magicians and
gain insight and techniques to performing the tricks purchased. Hats off to all of the sponsors and
awesome job Brent Braun for your work. Mark Mason, I hope you got some rest!!!

This was the most fun that I have had in a while. It was a privilege getting to meet some big names
in magic and watch them demonstrate/teach their effects. I am already looking forward to the next

It was an awesome day - the chance to meet and discus magic with some of the greatest minds in
magic. The chance to see effects you can't see anywhere else. The opprotunity to network and chat
magic with old and new friends. I would highly recommend this evernt for those who share a genuine
interest in magic.

The Louisville Penguin Expo was perfect in every way! If the Penguin Expo is coming to your city and
you haven't decided if it's for you, then let me assure you... It really has something that
everybody needs. The magicians in attendance were fantastic, and varied enough that there really
wasn't any overlap of material. If you like coin magic, mentalism, prop magic, cards... It was all
here. Every effect was performed at request, each effect was available to hold and determine if it
was something you needed. Not that that was even necessary, because everything available there was
awesome. The special guests were always ready to talk, explain, help. This is the kind of expo you'd
expect to pay at least 5 times or more what you pay for admission, and the attention you receive is
amazing. Plus the mini lectures were wonderfully educational and entertaining! I brought my family
and they were thrilled the whole time. GO TO THE PENGUIN MAGIC EXPO's!

The Expo was GREAT! All of the magicians were really nice, and weren't pushy about you wanting to
buy their stuff. The lectures were really great. I bought a total of 6 items, and the place wasn't
crowded, and it was big and spacey too! If you were there, I was the kid who got up to volunteer for
the one that Chris Smith did, where he put an X on his hand with a sharpie, and then transferred it
to my hand.
It was a great expo, and I hope to see it next year!

I have been to several of your Expo's, one in the same hotel a year or two ago. The problem was that
with a large crowd, and all of the seller tables next to each other in a small room and with the
show area at the end of the room it was almost impossible to hear any of the pitches. It was
difficult to even get up close to the seller's tables , let alone to find out the different tricks
they were selling. It was so noisy, that I took out my hearing aids and still could not hear clearly
over the din.
It was so bad that I gave my $10 coupon away to a friend and left after an hour.
Very disapointing, I'm sorry that I went.
