(LAS VEGAS) – With health and safety as the top priority, the American Gem Society (AGS) has made the decision to postpone Conclave 2021 until the fall.
After canceling the 2020 Conclave due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the AGS had planned to host the 2021 Conclave, April 26 – 28 in Louisville, Kentucky at the Omni Louisville Hotel.
AGS is working to select new dates and a location, and will issue an update as soon as possible.
“This was a very difficult, but necessary decision for us to make,” said Alexis Padis, CGA, Chair of the AGS Conclave Committee, and Secretary on the AGS Board of Directors. “We all miss time spent in person with our AGS community, and everyone was so excited about the idea of seeing one another finally. With the uncertainty that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought and the health of our membership as the top priority, we came to the conclusion, after much discussion, that the best thing to do for our members was to move this much-loved event to the fall.”
Members’ health and safety will continue to be a priority for AGS. When Conclave returns in the fall, AGS plans to provide a safe environment for attendees that follows local and federal health guidelines.
The American Gem Society would like to thank Jewelers Mutual Group, who will return as the Presenting Sponsor for Conclave in the fall. Without their support, the American Gem Society would not be able to provide the educational programming that it offers.
