Marcus Lemonis to Open AGS Conclave 2022
He starred in CNBC’s “The Profit” and is set to appear in a new HGTV series next year.
Lemonis hosted “The Profit” for eight seasons, from 2013 to 2021, and has signed on to star in a new eight-episode HGTV series called “The Renovator,” in which he helps homeowners fix their most valuable asset—their home. The show is set to premiere in 2022.
He also is the CEO of Camping World, which he helped build into the largest RV retailer in the country, and, AGS said, has “inspired” his audience with advice and quotes such as: “If you don’t have emotion and you don’t have passion, then you shouldn’t be in business, because money is a byproduct, not the purpose.”
Conclave 2022 is scheduled to take place April 25-27 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, at the Omni Oklahoma City Hotel.
It will be the city’s first time hosting Conclave, with Mitchell Clark, CG, a member of AGS’ international board of directors, calling the city a “hidden gem” (pun intended).
“The city has experienced a renaissance over the last 10 years and is the perfect location for AGS Conclave,” said Clark, who runs Oklahoma City’s oldest jeweler, B.C. Clark.
“The brand-new Omni hotel sits right on the edge of the new 70-acre Scissortail Park that extends from the core of downtown to the shore of the Oklahoma River. I am thrilled for the AGS community to have a chance to visit and experience our great city.”
Further announcements for the speaker lineup for AGS Conclave 2022 are slated to be made this fall.
Speaker proposals will be sent out soon, and anyone with interest in speaking can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Registration for Conclave is not yet open; check AGS.org/Conclave for future announcements.
