Join the world’s largest magic organisation.

Ask any of the world’s top magicians about what contributed to their success the most and you’ll hear one resounding answer over and over again. They all credit their peers and mentors within the magical community with providing invaluable support and guidance.

Being part of a supportive organisation dedicated to assisting New Zealand magicians could give you the advantages you need.

New Zealand has a thriving community of magicians. The International Brotherhood of Magicians has been actively involved in this community since 1958 with the formation of Kiwi Ring #160. The I.B.M. regularly hosts meet ups, special events, conventions and lectures by renowned international performers. Joining the I.B.M automatically gives you access to all of these events. As a member of the I.B.M., you will enter into a magical world of learning, performing and fellowship. It is a great place to make friends who share your interest in magic.

World Leader in Magic Instruction

"Joining the International Brotherhood of Magicians opened a door to the amazing world of magic for me. For over thirty years the articles, magic and even ads in The Linking Ring have stimulated my imagination. Every I.B.M. Convention I've attended has filled me with ideas and inspiration."

Master Illusionist

"I've been an I.B.M. member since I was 13 years old. The organisation has given me a foundation of knowledge, training, and encouragement that has been absolutely crucial to my development as a magician. I would not be where I am today without everything that I've learned."
