The Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) has announced their annual February gemological education conference will be a virtual event.
The 2021 AGA Virtual Conference will take place on February 16 & 17, and deliver four gemological education sessions over two days, online each day from 8:30 to 11:00 am (PST). Open to everyone, attendees can register to participate in both days or single-day sessions.
The conference will feature industry experts discussing timely topics including a global update on the diamond marketplace, insight into gem pegmatites and their related mineralogy and gemology, results of experimental heat treatments of corundum, and the first-hand account of attending Myanmar’s famed annual trading emporium for gems.
AGA president, Teri Brossmer stated: “Although we are unable to meet in person for our annual Tucson Conference this coming February, AGA is excited to host the 2021 AGA Virtual Conference and to deliver the top-notch gemological education experience that our members and the industry look forward to attending each year. No matter the obstacle, AGA remains committed to providing educational opportunities to our network of loyal AGA members and gem enthusiasts who invest in their knowledge and shape the future of gemology. We look forward to bringing folks together again and hope you will join us.”
