2017 International Summit


Registration will open shortly.

This year's Summit is being held at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower, Portland, OR, November 9th through 12th.  Discounted rooms will be available to Summit attendees - more details to follow.

At the Summit, you’ll have access to amazing events and fascinating speakers, along with plenty of opportunities to share and collaborate with other professionals across all industries—people who, like you, are constantly searching for inspiration, for what’s next in color.  Here’s a quick look at what we have planned:

  • 2019+ World Color Forecast™ - 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™. You’ll come away with color cards and fan decks of these forecast colors so that you can begin to work with them immediately.
  • Trend-setting guest speakers
  • Opportunities to build your tribe - We provide an open-discussion atmosphere that will allow you to mix, mingle, and come away with lasting relationships and connections. The friends you make will form your “tribe” for years to come, and their energy and insight will prove invaluable.
  • Future-Thinking Workshop - Have you ever wondered how futurists anticipate trends years in advance? This workshop will push you to look further into the future and spot emerging trends to predict how they will influence color.
  • Networking — 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 Portland..
