AGS Conclave will be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 2022 and Louisville, Kentucky in 2023. This year, it will take place in Dallas.
Las Vegas—The American Gem Society has announced the future locations for AGS Conclave through 2023.

“While the distinctive sessions and networking events are a key component, the host city of each Conclave is a huge part of what makes the annual experience so unique and special. No two Conclaves are ever alike.”

This year’s Conclave will be held in Dallas at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel from September 12 to 14.

Keynote speakers include actor Henry Winkler, Josh Linkner, and Amelia Rose Earhart.
