2022+ Asia Pacific Forecast

At the very heart of all CMG Conferences is the Color Forecasting process where the world’s leading color and design influencers share, discuss and explore color directions. You will be on the cutting edge of color forecasting, and you’ll bring these insights back with you to shape and validate discussions and decisions on color directions for your industry, product or service.  CMG’s Color Forecasting process is a collaboration of minds; a joint effort to understand and interpret what is happening in the world around us and how this will influence color.  The final result – a 16-color Directional Forecast that is distributed electronically with a report identifying the trends and influences affecting color directions.  The Color Forecast shows notations in all the major color systems including Pantone, NCS, RAL, RGB and LAB.

Who Should Attend?

Global manufacturers, brands, and marketers understand the importance of color marketing to their bottom line. Your company will benefit from creating research fueled and validated products in colors that sell. As a project manager, product developer, designer, manufacturer, CMF specialist, color specifier, and anyone who works with color for products you won’t want to miss the important color discussions.
