Gemmological Association of Great Britain to Host 2012 Gem-A Conference

The Gemmological Association of Great Britain will host its 21st annual Gem-A conference Nov. 3–6 at the Hotel Russell in London.

The conference will feature speakers such as GemWorld president Richard Drucker and Dr. Hanco Zwaan, president of CIBJO’s gemological commission. Attendees will discuss the detection of synthetic diamonds, and get a behind the scenes look at Jewelry Television.

“The Gem-A annual conference is one of the finest in the world. This year we have a wide cross-section of speakers who are all leaders in their respected field,” said James Riley, Gem-A CEO, in a statement. “It is a unique opportunity, particularly for people in the U.K., to meet these specialists and to further their knowledge.”
