All our presenters are showcased not only during the event but throughout our social media channels worldwide.

Please send us your presentation proposal here … NOW CLOSED.

Professional Development Day (Friday October 7th 2016)

We are offering a unique and exclusive full-day intensive professional workshop on Friday. This day will be delivered by Marcus Katz, Tali Goodwin, Christiana Gaudet and Jenna Matlin, all of whom are full-time professional tarot readers, authors and teachers with decades of experience in the business.

This day will cover tarot business development, professional concerns, the challenges and opportunities of niche marketing, the overcoming of audience perception, and much more.

It is ideal for those wishing to develop a tarot business, or are otherwise interested or involved in the professional tarot industry.

The program is also a keystone in the launch of our Licensed Tarosophy Tarot Trainers opportunity, and required attendance for those seeking licensing in 2016-2017.

Attendance does not require you to be part of that program, it is geared to providing great information as a stand-alone one-day event.

The day program including lunch and all materials is $185 for non-Association members, and $170 for Association members.

Association Members … $170




Non-Association Members … $185

Testimonials We guarantee a unique experience in a supportive, friendly and considered space for tarot learning at every level. In fact, 90% of our attendees gave us a massive 11 out of 10 for our first Florida TarotCon in 2015! The other 10% gave us 10 out of 10! Here's just a few comments from attendees:

I learned so much!! I don't believe there was a bad presentation... This was the best event I have ever been to.


Everything was spectacular from beginning to end!!


My absolute favorite thing of the conference was, by far, the lecture from Russell Sturgess. There was so much information in his presentation, and so much that I had never even considered. It was truly incredible. Outside of that, I thought dinner and the dance to release energy was a great experience. At dinner, one of the ladies at the table (I believe her name was Judith), gave us small opals. It was a small gesture, but so indicative of the attitude that everyone had throughout the weekend. I found everyone to be warm and inviting, no matter if they were an expert that had been reading for years, or a beginner, like myself.


My favorite experiences included meeting the people I talk to on Facebook. I loved Derek Bain. His enthusiasm is inspiring. Russel Sturgess' research was fascinating. And finally I had so much fun at the Survivors Dinner. The conference was an 11+


What I liked was Russell, Derek, and Marcus' demonstration on Lenormand at the end. Without a doubt these 3 made the event worthwhile!!! Oh, also Marcus & Tali with the 5 minute reading class!! Of the local speakers, I really enjoyed Christiana very much. Her enthusiasm is inspiring!! And 'experiential' moments, such as when Marcus taught the 5 minute reading. As I love teaching in a very experiential manner, I also like to participate in like fashion. It also creates connections between people, which is always a plus :)


I met so many AMAZING people ! Good Memories. So many new and different ideas !
