Whether it’s fashion, lifestyle or interiors, colour forecasting is big business. But how are these colour trends created? And how are the choices then communicated throughout the supply chain? What are the challenges and how can these be overcome? What is the potential environmental impact?

Ultimately, what is the process of managing colour from the latest trend forecast to the retailer and eventually the consumer?

This event will look at:

  • The process of creating and managing colour trends
  • The challenges around colour communication
  • The importance of a good colour education to enable effective colour management
  • The benefits of using engineered colour standards
  • The designer’s perspective and how they manage colour

It will include a range of industry speakers giving practical solutions and real-life case studies.

Speakers will be announced shortly.

The event includes the grand final of the SDC International Design Competition 2018, with finalists from 14 countries, the announcement of the winner and presentation of prizes. The 2018 competition is sponsored by Archroma, and links to The Color Atlas by Archroma are key to the competition theme and accompanying educational package.

This event is free to attend and booking will open shortly. For further information please email:
