We never doubted the guys behind the Essential Magic Conference. According to a newsletter, organizers said that even though all 33 speakers were being flown to Ansiao, Portugal for the conference, that people still asked them if they were really going to show everyone in the same place.

In case you missed it, we interviewed co-organizer Marco Tempest in this podcast, where he talks about why they decided to construct the studio instead of using teleconferencing software.
