(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
