(PRESS RELEASE) Mark your Calendar — Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) announces its annual February gemological education conference, which will be a virtual event.

The 2021 AGA virtual conference will take place Feb. 16 and 17, 2021, and deliver four gemological education sessions over two days, online each day from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (PST). The event is open to everyone, and 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, said “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.”

Event registration and additional 2021 AGA virtual conference details will be released soon.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
