(PRESS RELEASE) LAS VEGAS, NV — With the American Gem Society’s (AGS) health and safety as the top priority, AGS has made the decision to postpone Conclave 2021 until the fall.

After canceling the 2020 Conclave due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Gem Society had planned to host the 2021 Conclave April 26-28 in Louisville, KY, 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.”

Keeping members’ health and safety will continue to be a priority for AGS. When Conclave returns in the fall, AGS will 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.

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.”
