Color Marketing Group Events
Color Sells...and the 'Right' Colors Sell Better!®





May 17-19, 2017

Color Marketing Group will be holding their 2017 European Conference this May in Valencia, Spain. As a color professional, join us as we discuss and explore color directions for 2019+.

2019+ European Forecast

We recently revealed the 2018+ European 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 are working to bring you 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. Keep checking back to see who will be a part of this year's presenters. 


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

Explore Valencia

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 Valencia.



The Conference is being held at The Hotel Balneario Las Arenas - the only Top Luxury 5 star hotel of the Santos Chain in Valencia, created with the objective of restoring the beaches of Las Arenas and la Malvarrosa in the city of Valencia. The building, with a classical look, combines the architectural beauty of the historical Balneario Las Arenas resort, founded in 1898, with the elegance and comfort of modern design, occupying an exceptional seaside location.

Networking Dinner

Wednesday May 17th, 20:00

One of the most enjoyable things on any trip is discovering the local cuisine and Valencia has a lot to offer in this regard.  The most important dish in Valencia is rice and Valencia is THE place to eat it, whether it’s paella, baked rice or rice with seafood.  In addition to rice dishes, foodies will also find a whole range of innovative culinary creations in Valencia.  A culinary revolution that has occurred in the city in recent years is reflected in its Mediterranean signature cuisine.  Join your color tribe for this optional event designed to give you the full flavor of Valencia AND connect with your fellow Conference attendees.  To register, check the box on the Registration Form, or using the online registration sign-up.
