Arizona conference to unveil true colors

The Color Management Conference, taking place in Phoenix, Arizona this December, is being presented by the Printing Industries of America (PIA) and should appeal to those who work for graphic design and printing companies.

The main theme of the conference is helping businesses to use color effectively. Touching on brand colors, production color control, and following color standards, it has all been put together to help print companies lower their production costs and waste levels. There will be new information from ink manufacturers, seminars on basic aspects of color management, and a hands-on Mac Lab.

The two keynote speakers for the event are Russell Brown from Adobe and Sven Segar of Future Brand. Brown will be giving a presentation entitled ‘The Russell Brown Show: Live!’, while Segar will discuss the recent rebranding of American Airlines. Some of the seminar topics set to be delivered during the three-day conference include ‘Bridging the color language barrier’, ‘The latest scoop on ISO 12647 and 15339’, ‘Printing by the numbers: G7 in action’ and ‘What do printers wish designers knew ... and vice versa’.

In addition, those attending will have the opportunity to network with their peers at receptions and lunches. Vendors will also be on hand and are likely to display the latest in printing equipment.

The Color Management Conference is set to take place at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix from December 8-10, with a pre-conference show on December 7. Fees are $995 for PIA members or $1,195 for non-members. For more information, visit the PIA website.
