Congressional Resolution 642, "Magic is art".

Recognizing magic as a rare & valuable art form & national treasure. 

Magic is an art form with a power and potential unlike any other. The purpose of Congressional Resolution 642 is to help preserve, protect, and promote the art of magic for generations to come - with equal artistic respect as dance, jazz, music, and film.

This resolution has nothing to do with government funding.

As a visual art, magic transcends any barrier of race, religion, or culture — and as an art form, it deserves the same respect as any other with a vibrant and diverse community of creators, performers, fans, and enthusiasts.



Whereas magic has not been properly recognized as a great American art form, nor has it been accorded the institutional status on a national level commensurate with its value and importance;

Whereas there is not an effective national effort to support and preserve magic;

Whereas documentation and archival support required by such a great art form has yet to be systematically applied to the field of magic; and

Whereas it is in the best interest of the national welfare to preserve and celebrate the unique art form of magic: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) recognizes magic as a rare and valuable art form and national treasure; and

(2) supports efforts to make certain that magic is preserved, understood, and promulgated.

ExhibitorLive round-up and review.

We had a wonderful time this year at ExhibitorLive in Las Vegas! It is always great to catch-up with industry friends, clients and attendees. Definitely a great year!

One of our favorite visitors to stop by the Corporate-Fx exhibit this year was David Copperfield himself!  

David Copperfield and Scott Tokar at the Corporate-Fx exhibit.

We tried to get him to join the Corporate-Fx tradeshow magic group but he declined, saying he was too busy with a hit magic show at the MGM Grand hotel, go figure… None the less, it was an honor and a privilege to say hi to a living legend in magic.

This year, Corporate-Fx founder, Scott Tokar had four classes at ExhibitorLive. And once again the reviews and response has been overwhelmingly positive.

NEW this year was the ExhibitorLive Scavenger Hunt and Crowd-Sourced Success Lab. This two-part, peer-driven session was a hands-on lab. That allowed the participants to locate, photograph and share cutting-edge exhibiting techniques on the tradeshow floor itself.

We discussed and evaluated: Location strategies, booth graphics, design & layout, staffing, give-aways and traffic builders, booth size and Memorability, just to name a few topics.

Once again, for the fourth year running, Scott’s Booth Basics Boot Camp: Lessons from the Trade Show Floor class was almost SOLD OUT! The class explored the difference between “epic fail” and “total success” on the trade show floor? We discussed booth staff training and exhibitor etiquette, local, national and international differences in exhibiting, sales engagement techniques that help maximize lead counts, visual and physical barriers that restrict interaction with attendees and how to make your booth and brand memorable.

Bottom-line, the exhibit industry is in a new renaissance after the great recession. Attendance was up this year at Exhibitor Live just as we have seen across-the-board in every industry in the tradeshow world. 

Here is to continued success in 2016 and beyond!
