(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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
