The International Brotherhood of Magicians is the world’s largest organization dedicated to the art of magic, with members in 88 countries. Since 1922, our official publication, The Linking Ring, has linked magicians throughout the world. Local branches of the I.B.M., known as Rings, meet each month in hundreds of locations. Our Annual Convention features top professional magicians in our spectacular evening shows. Each year, the I.B.M. Gold Medal Contest for stage magic and the I.B.M. Gold Cups Contest for close-up magic attract some of the best up-and-coming magicians from many different countries. Our organization is about having fun with magic, and we hope you will join us in becoming a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
