AGTA Announces Cancellation of GemFair™

A Message from AGTA: During this time of uncertainty, what remains clear is that we are indeed living through a period unlike any of us has experienced in our lives. The rapid escalation of people diagnosed with the Covid-19 virus is showing no evidence of slowing, and it will certainly be some time before this scourge is brought under control.

Foremost in our thoughts is the health and safety of our families, friends, and colleagues. After a thorough assessment of the risk posed by this virus, AGTA has decided to cancel its 2020 AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas, June 1-5, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We had hoped that we could move forward with the event if the risk declined, but the national and global health community is united in the opinion this will not happen in the short time between now and the scheduled dates of the show. All our efforts now must be directed to slowing the spread of this virus.

We are deeply appreciative of our members who have supported the show and of our clients who visit our show and share our passion for color. We encourage everyone to seek reasoned guidance from your local health professionals and community leaders and practice responsible behavior.

The AGTA staff will be working remotely for the foreseeable future but remain available to assist our members and the greater jewelry community. You may contact the office at 800-972-1162 to leave a message or email info@agta.org.

We are here to help, and we sincerely hope for the health and wellbeing of you, your families, and your communities.

For further information, please email: info@agta.org
