AGS and JIC partner for 2011 Conclave Fashion Show

(LAS VEGAS) - The American Gem Society (AGS) has announced Jewelry Information Center (JIC) - the consumer education arm of Jewelers of America and the leading fashion authority in the jewelry and watch industry - will produce the annual 2011 Conclave Fashion Show, held on April 27, 2011.

“The annual Fashion Show is Conclave’s premier networking event with the best retailers in the country. Members attend because they not only enjoy the show, but the networking opportunities are tremendous,” said Ruth Batson, executive director and CEO of AGS. “People mingle throughout the evening, watching the fashion show, viewing the jewelry in the supplier showcases, and networking. It’s an evening where trends and business are discussed, as well as members just having fun.”

Suppliers participating in the fashion show will not only have unprecedented access to the AGS retailers during the evening reception, but during the course of the entire education-packed four day Conclave.  Additionally, there will be an added incentive for fashion show participants: Jewelers of America will offer a special benefits package at a reduced rate for those who elect to join JA.

“Jewelry Information Center is thrilled to partner with American Gem Society in the planning and production of this year’s exciting fashion show,” says Helena Krodel, director of media and special events, Jewelers of America. “Since 1946, JIC has been known as the fashion and trends authority for the fine jewelry and watch industry. We can think of no better platform to publicize the hottest jewelry than at the highly-regarded AGS Conclave.”

The American Gem Society Conclave will be held in San Francisco April 27th - 30th at the Westin St. Francis in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square. More announcements regarding the program for the 2011 Conclave are forthcoming over the next few months.
