LBG Travels to INSTORE's Smart Show & AGS Conclave 2016

The LBG team had a great time at INSTORE's Smart Jewelry Show and American Gem Society's AGS Conclave 2016. 

The Smart Jewelry Show took place in Chicago, Illinois on the Navy Pier; no, we're not kidding. The view was absolutely astonishing, and it was definitely a hard trek back to reality. The Smart Jewelry Show, for those of you that are not familiar, is one of the most world-renowned jewelry tradeshow that provides the perfect blend of education and buying opportunities. 

AGS Conclave 2016, on the other hand, took place in our nation's hub this year, good ol' Washington D.C. Former Secretary of State and retired four-star general, Colin Powell, kicked off the show with a keynote address, and it was high hopes from there on out! 

Follow along through the LBG team's latest adventures - we promise you won't regret it!
