Magic Johnson to Give AGS Conclave Opening Keynote

Basketball legend and businessman Earvin “Magic” Johnson will be the lead keynote speaker at the American Gem Society’s 2014 Conclave, the group announced.

The 80th annual AGS get-together will be held at the historic Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, Calif., April 23–26. 

Johnson will speak about business, leadership, and his record of philanthropy, in a talk, “The Magic of Winning,” at the Conclave opening session on April 23.

“A legendary event in the jewelry industry deserves a legend for a keynote,” said John Carter, chair of the society’s Conclave subcommittee, in a statement. “Conclave’s theme in 2014 is ‘Be Different. Be Distinctive. Be Here.’ With Magic Johnson getting the show started, this Conclave will be like no other.”
