With less than 6 weeks until IMX2012 – we’ve bought out plane tickets, we’ve got our hotel booked, our itinerary planned – and we realised while packing our bags that we actually had 3 extra passes – 3 passes we figured we’d give to you, so you can join us for the greatest convention of the year. Hosted in Vegas, with names like Greg Wilson, Jeff McBride, Dani DaOrtiz and Lennart Green along for the ride, you know this thing is going to be HUGE.
But enough about all that – we know what you really want to know. How do you get your hands on these fabled tickets? It’s simple, so get your bags packed. We’re giving you 3 ways to get your hands on them. The more ways you enter – the more chances you have to win.
Way 1. Twitter
Win in 140 Characters or less! Simply Follow @Ellusionist and @IMXLasVegas, and tell us WHO you want to see the most, and why – making sure to use the hashtag #IMX2012. We’ll pick the most creative, honest, humorous – basically the best tweet that complies with the above conditions, and we’ll give them a free pass to the convention. You’ll also get to hang out with us – come by the booth and meet Brad, Jason, Peter and Eric – we’ll all be there. You can even bring us nachos from the buffet. We like nachos.
Way 2. Facebook
We want to know just how much you really want to win the Ultimate IMX2012 experience. So – we’re not going to tell you what you need to do, you’ll need to tell us what you’re willing to do to win. Would you be nice to your sister for a whole day? Would you string up a massive ‘Please Ellusionist, Send me to IMX2012!’ sign at the next NFL Game you attend? Would you give away your entire collection of playing cards to a Hospital or Nursing Home – including Gold Arcanes?
Simply post on Facebook what you’re willing to do, tag @Ellusionist: Magic Beyond Belief and @IMX International Magic Experience – and cross your fingers that you’re chosen. But be honest in what you’re willing to do – because if you win, you will need to do it – and we’ll verify it before we send you tickets. Again, most humorous, creative and downright epic post will win.
Way 3. Pinterest
What? What’s Pinterest? How do I win with this thing? First – crawl out from under that rock. Pinterest is here, and it’s great fun. It’s basically a collection of Pinboards of everything you find and want to share on the web. There’s boards for Brownie Recipes, LOLCats, Wishlists, Cool Gadgets, Travel – and even Magic. It’s the fastest growing social media community on the web – and we’re doing awesome things with it – including sending one Pinterester to IMX2012. To win, follow @Ellusionist on Pinterest and create a ‘What a Free Ticket to #IMX2012 from Ellusionist Means to Me’ Board. Then get Pinning!
Whether it’s the sights of Vegas, Piff the Magic Dragon, buying Arcanes, Artifice Decks and PureSmoke at our Booth (hint hint – pin or repin from Ellusionist.com) or cruising around town in one of those giant Pink Stretch Hummers – we want to know what a free ProPass to the Ultimate IMX2012 experience means to you. Not on Pinterest yet? Register on Pinterest.com and start following us for your chance to win – as there’ll be more ways to win with Pinterest in the future from us as well.
All entries will close on Friday, 27th of April at 9pm EST. Winners will be announced across our social media streams on the evening of Sunday 29th of April – giving you 3 weeks until IMX2012.
That’s 3 Easy Ways we’re giving you to win a Free ProPass Registration to IMX2012 Las Vegas, as well as the chance to come hang out with us while we’re kickin’ it there too. So – go out there and get to ‘tweepospinning’ – that’s right, we just made our own buzzword.
We can do that, we’re awesome.
Good luck to everyone. Make those entries count – we’ll keep everyone updated as things progress, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at IMX2012.
