 The American Gem Society Brings Conclave to JCK

 Las Vegas, NV  The American Gem Society is taking Conclave to JCK. On May 31st, AGS is holding a one-day all-inclusive mini-Conclave at JCK Las Vegas, aptly called Conclave X-Press. The event is open to both members and non-members and gives anyone in the industry the benefit of experiencing Conclave at a fraction of what the regular event costs. 

Conclave X-Press features five presentations, including nationally renowned sales guru, Dave Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell will present “The Power of Understanding People” from 10:00 am - 11:15 am during the day of the event.

Additionally, Conclave X-Press will feature these speakers and presentations: 

Hayley Henning: Tanzanite: The Story Behind the Stone

Skydas International: Daily Operations and Trade Show Security
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

“We had one of the most successful Conclaves that we’ve had in years this past April,” noted Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society and AGS Laboratories. “Conclave X-Press gives AGS members a chance to get another taste of Conclave without having to wait till next year, and for non-members, it allows them to experience the high-level of talent we have at our annual educational conference.”
