2017 Asia Pacific CONFERENCE

September 10-12, 2017

Color Marketing Group's 2017 Asia Pacific Conference is being held in Suzhou China September 10th to 12th. As a color professional, join us as we discuss and explore color directions for 2019+.

2019+ Asia Pacific Forecast

We recently revealed the 2018+ Asia Pacific Forecast during our 2016 International Summit – now we begin to forecast color directions for 2019 and beyond and YOU can be part of that conversation. Our Conference Workshops offer a chance to explore and recognize subtle nuances in color, to envision which palettes and color combinations will best attract, inspire, and inform, and to explore the global influences and drivers that affect color directions.


At the very heart of all CMG events 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.

We have an amazing line of up innovative, educational and visionary speakers. Combining creative talent with original thinking, our speaker line-up will inspire you with knowledge, insight and professional thinking. 


CMG’s forecasts are created by members and participants in collaborative multi-industry Workshops. They are cross-industry, applicable across multiple industries and multiple product lines – and they are directional, focusing on the directional change in colors and color families.

We know that part of what you love about the conference is having time to catch up with friends (and make some new ones), which is why this year we’re blocking out an entire afternoon so that you can explore, engage, and enjoy color-rich Suzhou.
