The American Gem Society (AGS) has rescheduled its next annual Conclave, which was due to take place in April 2021.

The Las Vegas-based organization is planning to hold the event in the fall, and is working to select the dates and a location, it said Tuesday. The 2021 Conclave was scheduled to run from April 26 to 28 at the Omni Louisville Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky, after the AGS canceled the 2020 edition altogether due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

“With the uncertainty that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, and the health of our membership as the top priority, we came to the conclusion, after much discussion, that the best thing to do for our members was to move this much-loved event to the fall,” said Alexis Padis, chair of the AGS Conclave committee and secretary on the AGS board of directors.

The AGS pledged to provide a safe environment in accordance with local and federal health guidelines when the Conclave returns.
