China’s business newspaper The Standard (Weekend) describes Albert Tam as someone who “has been entertaining and astonishing tens of thousands of people in Hong Kong for more than 20 years.”
His skills are so respected that he has been appointed to supervise the running of the 2009 World Magic Convention in Beijing where hundreds of internationally acclaimed magicians will congregate to show off their best tricks, give lectures and market their props and inventions.
The event is staged every three years by the World Congress of Magic Art and Tam, responsible for organizing the 2003 convention in Hong Kong, says it’s the first time a magic festival of such importance has been staged on the mainland.
A magic performer, magic shop owner, producer, director, international magic judge, President of Magicians’ Association of Hongkong, Territorial Vice President of the International Brotherhood of Magician, Society of American Magicians International Deputy, and founding father of Asian Magicians’ Association, Albert Tam supported Inner Magic Club’s bid for membership in Federation Internationale des Societes Magiques (FISM). If you recall, IMC was accepted into FISM last year, the only association of Filipino magicians to have become a member of this prestigious organization.
To Albert, Inner Magic Club applauds you as you take the stage in the Magic Castle.
