NEW Color Applications Workshops at the Summit!
Introducing our revamped CMF and Color Applications Workshops at this year’s Summit.
You spoke and we listened! We have revamped this year’s categories for Friday’s Color Applications Workshops to focus on specific market sectors. Four overarching categories offer a selection of exciting workshops from which you can choose:
CMF (Color, Material & Finish)
Residential – choose from Home Interiors and Home Exteriors
Lifestyle & Consumer – choose from Fashion, Durable Goods, Non-Durable Goods, and Visual Communications
Contract – choose from Commercial Interiors and Commercial Exteriors
Working with the 2021+ CMG World Color Forecast™
During the International Summit we’ll reveal the 2021+ CMG World Color Forecast™ comprising of 64 global color directions for 2021 and beyond. Each Workshop will assess the 64 colors within the Forecast and work to select the top 12 colors that will emerge in your specific market sector. It’s a tidal wave of collaboration with like minded color design professionals resulting in industry specific reports which are shared only with Summit attendees.
If your responsibilities include not only a color decision but also the identification of key color, material, and finish (CMF), this Workshop is for you. Join innovative suppliers, product developers, and designers to discuss the multi-dimensions of color, material, and finish. Explore new processes driving the need for new colors and applications.
Participants in this Color Applications Workshop will forecast the top 2-3 trend directions that will emerge on the global CMF market in the next 2-3 years. You’ll anticipate how they could be assimilated to any of the 64 colors from the 2021+ CMG World Color Forecast™. Industries that can benefit from this workshop include polymers, composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, energy materials, engineered surfaces, colorant pigments, special effect pigments, special effect additives, masterbatch, injection molding, industrial design, paints, industrial coatings, ceramics, metals, films, laminates, automotive, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, wheel chairs, electronics, appliances, color products and services.
