Conclave Overview

The American Gem Society’s International Conclave, which began in 1937, has been the premier educational and networking event in the jewelry industry. The Society’s members have congregated annually to further their gemological education and meet with their colleagues.

Considered one of the primary benefits of membership in the AGS, Conclave is held in a new location each year, and features some of the leading national speakers and industry experts, all teaching a variety of topics ranging from gemological training, to sales, leadership and marketing sessions.

Conclave 2021 will have a robust schedule of breakout sessions, hands-on classes, and numerous networking events. Come to Conclave to learn, make connections, and have a great time!
