Powder pink, cobalt blue or cream … what will be the upcoming color trends in Europe? Join Color Marketing Group to identify and determine future color trends and influences in Europe for 2017 and beyond. CMG experts will lead this international Color Forecasting Workshop to determine what’s coming NEXT. You will discuss and identify the colors that will be the basis for future color trends in Europe, sharing your color stories with like-minded color professionals. As the event progresses, the colors will be narrowed to a final European Color Forecast for 2017+ which is distributed in digital format with Written Report. A printed forecast will be distributed later in the year, following CMG’s 2015 International Summit where the results from this Conference will be revealed as part of the 2017+ World Color Forecast.
