Like Nashville, Conclave has changed over the years. Many of these changes have come from your feedback and ideas. This year, we’ve incorporated some new exciting opportunities. Here’s a glimpse at what’s in store:

Conclave 2018 is moving to a new schedule! It’s been a challenge for members to take time away from their stores, so we’ve moved Conclave to a Monday through Wednesday schedule, giving our members the opportunity to attend Conclave and be back in their stores for their busiest days of the week—the weekend!

An Ideal, Excellent, Very Good and all-around Good Use of Your Time. Be sure to visit the AGS Laboratories Loose Diamond Pavilion, where your fellow AGS Suppliers who specialize in AGS Laboratories graded loose diamonds will have the opportunity to showcase their product. Buy diamonds from your diamond grading lab from the best suppliers in the industry: AGS Suppliers.

Cozy up to a Campfire. We are pleased to introduce to Conclave a different kind of concept in learning: the Campfire session. These quick and informative 20-minute forums connect you with AGS Supplier and Sustaining Firm members who can discuss how their product or service can help you save time, money and grow your business.

An Alternative Ending: Unlike in past years, Conclave will end with the President’s Party on Wednesday evening, April 25.

We hope to see you in Nashville, TN, April 23-25, 2018. To register, click here!
