China wants to be the magic capital of the world!
« on: October 21, 2014, 02:30:12 PM »

In today's USA Today paper (10/21) there is an interesting article about construction on a massive venue for magic shows near Beijing.  Officials say it will be better than Las Vegas when the shows open in 2018!

Officials announced a global magic alliance and the transformation of the little know Changping district into "magic city".

Magic falls under the control of the China Acrobatic Association.  "China has the only government worldwide that provides such strong support to the magic industry," said Liang Ming, 28, a magician who plans to move his company to "Magic City."

Wonder if top spinning is part of the China Acrobatic Association?
