2018 SymposiumPosted by Jan Asplund Mar 22, 2018 21:24:38
There is a new date for the 2018 Scandinavian Gem Symposium: 25-26th of August. Unfortunately we have had to make the decision to move the symposium to late August instead of early June.
Hopefully this does not interfere too much with your planned attendance at the symposium and we are grateful for any help we can get in spreading the new date!
