International Federation of Magic Societies 500 Magicians to Gather in Québec City in 2020 for FISM’s North American Qualifications

August 1, 2017

A first in Canada! The Québec City Convention Centre and Club de magie de Québec are proud to announce that the FISM (International Federation of Magic Societies) North American Qualifications will be held in Québec City in May 2020. The event will feature both close-up and stage magic, with 500 gifted magicians competing to qualify for the World Magic Championship in 2021. FISM president Domenico Dante announced the decision at the IBM/SAM Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky, from July 11 to 16, 2017.

The Qualifications will serve as a showcase for Québec City, boosting its odds of being selected to host FISM’s World Magic Championship in 2021—an ambitious goal considering that the event has never been held in the Americas. FISM comprises 101 societies and federations representing over 70,000 magicians from 49 different countries.
