Extreme Color Management Event Launched
September 16-17 in New Orleans, co-locating with Spectrum, G7 Summit,, G7 Experts Re-certification.
The Color Management Group has announced the launch of its Extreme Color Management event, which will offer sessions that provide comprehensive technical information and insights into the newest color-management techniques and technologies. The event will take place in New Orleans, September 16 and 17, 2008, and be targeted at color-management implementers and general managers who want to learn from experts who actually use color management tools on a day-to-day basis, say event organizers.
"Our new event is designed to address advanced color-management topics that are not currently available at other color management venues,' says Lida Jalali Marschke, founder and marketing director for the Color Management Group, the "think tank" consortium of independent consultant based resellers. 'New color-management tools and new tool capabilities will be highlighted to help color-management specialists remain on the leading edge of technology.'
'A town hall meeting where leading color management 'geeks' can engage in open discussions is designed to help drive the agenda for the color management research projects of our partner, IdeaAlliance, for the upcoming year,' continues Marschke. 'A management track running in parallel with Spectrum will provide the information managers need to make decisions about implementing the very same techniques and technologies that are discussed in the technical sessions. We plan to share information, have fun, and get the word out about our experts.'
