According to post-modern magic stars Penn and Teller, Jamy Ian Swiss "makes one understand what a terrifying art form pure sleight of hand can be." He has performed internationally for presenters ranging from Fortune 500 companies to the Smithsonian Institution. His television appearances include CBS "48 Hours,", PBS "Nova," "The Today Show," and multiple appearances on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson." He is the author of two collections of essays: "Shattering Illusions" and "Devious Standards"; "The Art of Magic," the companion book to the PBS documentary; and has contributed to other works including collaborating with Edward Tufte on "Explaining Magic" in the book "Visual Explanations." In a lengthy profile in "The New Yorker," Adam Gopnik writes, "Swiss is thought to have one of the most masterly sleight-of-hand techniques in the world today... like seeing Yo-Yo Ma."

Register for EG 2020.

30 April - 2 May 2020

Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to bring you a superb program for EG2020. However, in light of growing and legitimate concerns regarding the rapid spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which have gutted international events of all sizes, we have made the difficult decision to put EG on hiatus until it is once again deemed safe.


We know how much each of you look forward to EG and we were looking forward to seeing old friends, and welcoming many new ones, but we do need to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and partners, especially those traveling from afar.

We will be in touch in due course with future plans.
