NOVEMBER 9-12, 2017

Portland, OR


We’ll reveal our collection of regional forecasts from Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Latin America, and give you the first look at the 2019+ World Color Forecast™. 

2019+ World Color Forecast™

Last year CMG revealed the 2018+ North American Forecast and the 2018+ World Color Forecast™ during our 2016 International Summit. At the 2017 CMG Summit we will reveal the 2019+ World Color Forecast . Our Summit 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

Who Should Attend?

Global manufacturers, brands, and marketers understand the importance of color marketing to their bottom line.
