AATCC is conducting its Color Management Workshop September 30 – October 1 at the AATCC Technical Center in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA.

Demonstrations, examples, and hands-on activities show how lighting affects color, how to implement a digital color program with suppliers, systems to organize and manage color data, strategies for color consistency from concept to production, and much more. The workshop is designed for merchandisers, retailers, manufacturers, product developers, color approval managers, specifiers, and designers.
