Desert Magic Seminar was a magic convention in Las Vegas starting in 1978 and organized by Joe Stevens of the Magic Emporium.

It's beginning started as The Wichita Conclave in Kansas in 1975 until over the years it grew too large for the town of Wichita. With the advice of Jay Marshall, the convention was moved to Las Vegas to become the Desert Magic Seminar.

After twenty years, it merged with the World Magic Summit (which was held annually in Washington D.C.) to become the World Magic Seminar in 1999.
