AGS Accepting Speaker Proposals for 2024 Conclave
The annual education conference is seeking out speakers on artificial intelligence, lab-grown diamonds, security, marketing, and more.
The annual event will take place in Austin, Texas, from April 15-17 at the Hilton Austin.
Industry professionals and AGS members gather every year for the three-day educational and networking event, seeking out sessions to further their business and gemology knowledge.
The educational line-up will feature breakout sessions, panel discussions, insider insights, and immersive classes, tailored to all expertise levels from beginners to professionals.

These topics include artificial intelligence, security, government regulations, diversity, equity, and inclusion, lab-grown diamonds, retail innovation, consumer buying behaviors, gemology, marketing/sales, human resources, and legal issues relevant to the jewelry industry.
"Conclave's enduring success is fueled by the rich tapestry of diverse and timely topics relevant to our members," said Katherine Bodoh, CEO of AGS.
"We strive to provide an immersive and unforgettable learning experience through sessions led by a variety of leading experts in their respective fields. We are seeking speakers who can captivate our community, leading sessions that leave participants enriched, empowered, and fully equipped to thrive in our ever-evolving industry."
