AGS Announces Education Portfolio for 2021

Introducing Confluence, plus New Conclave Dates and Location 
Las Vegas, NV (January 14, 2021) – The American Gem Society (AGS) is very excited to announce its 2021 portfolio of education events, which will include virtual and in-person learning opportunities. 
Confluence, a new engaging virtual event, will take place on April 26. Confluence will offer industry professionals targeted learning based on their role within the industry. Whether it is content designed to drive sales or refine and rethink business planning and strategy, Confluence will provide high-impact content in a timeframe realistic for your busy life. 
AGS is pleased to announce that the 2021 Conclave has been rescheduled for September 12–14 in Dallas, Texas at the newly renovated Sheraton Dallas Hotel. 
This year’s AGS Conclave will be filled with opportunities to reconnect and engage with each other, peer-to-peer learning, engaging keynote speakers, and lots of fun. Look for registration details coming soon. When Conclave returns in September, the members’ health and safety will be the highest priority. 
“We are so excited about the depth of our 2021 education portfolio,” said Katherine Bodoh, CEO of AGS and AGS Laboratories. “Our programs tackle the vital subjects our members need to reach new heights in their professional development. In addition to the virtual and in-person events, members have access to our learning portal, AGS PRO, which has an array of relevant topics. Combined with our annual recertification, we have the cornerstone for year-round learning from the top subject matter experts.”
