AGTA Announces Two Shows For 2021 March 17, 2021 (0 comments)


Dallas, TX—The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) has announced it will hold two shows later in 2021. AGTA’s GemFair Las Vegas show will take place August 24 – 26, 2021, at the Encore Resort in Las Vegas, NV, and a new show, GemFair Denver, will be held September 18-21 in Denver, CO.

Originally and tradtitionally scheduled for June, AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas was put on hold until new dates and a location could be confirmed.

“We’re excited to be able to produce a much-needed show for both our exhibitors and our buyers,” said Douglas K. Hucker, AGTA CEO. “While this will be a one-year location, the great thing is that we are in the same Wynn-Encore resort complex as the COUTURE Show and the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (LVAJWS).”  

“After such a hectic year, it was important to AGTA to provide a safe marketplace for our businesses,” echoed Ruben Bindra, AGTA President. “We will work closely with Encore Resort and local health officials to make sure all safety protocols are in place for the show.”  

While each show will have separate registrations, AGTA will honor COUTURE and LVAJWS badges. Registration for the GemFair Las Vegas can be accessed here

Meanwhile, the new AGTA GemFair™ Denver will take place September 18-21, 2021, in conjunction with the Hard Rock Summit (HRS).  AGTA GemFair™ Denver will be an integral part of Sparkle & Joy, a section of HRS dedicated to fine gemstones, fine jewelry, and extraordinary gemstone objects. 

“We are especially thrilled to start a new GemFair in Denver this year,” stated Hucker.  “It’s in a beautiful location, and the timing is perfect for stocking up for the holiday season.” Registration for GemFair Denver will be accessible at AGTA’s website soon. More details to follow for the Denver show when available.

AGTA also announced dates for its traditional GemFair, which return to Tucson, AZ, from February 1-6, 2022.
