CMG's 2013 Asia Pacific meeting was held in at the Taiwan Design Centre, Taipei City, Taiwan, R.O.C. on April 19th followed by a half day speaker session on the morning of April 20th. The Chroma Zone meeting was a ONE day colour workshop including trend and colour forecast for 2014/15. The workshop was headed by Jane Stockel CMG, Special envoy to the CMG President, Asia Pacific Region.
The results from this International Workshop will be revealed at CMG's 2013 International Summit. Here you will hear full presentations from Asia Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. The World Palette, comprising forecasts from Asia Pacific, Europe, North American, and Latin America is distributed only at the International Summit. Each color is translated into NCS, Pantone, RAL, Munsell, LAB and sRGB color notations to facilitate color application across a wide number of materials and are invaluable tools to assist with the application of color to product lines. Color Palettes with Notations are complimentary to those who attend the International Summit and participants also receive a digital color card of the KEY colors from CMG’s 2013 ChromaZone events. The summit also provides workshops on directional color trends and the forces influencing color and design, the application of color to product, color combinations, finishes, and expressions, and there are also a myriad of educational sessions, and guest speakers.
