Recession or no recession, pandemic or “normal” times, some things never change — like the desire to find out what colors will be trending next in the upcoming year.
This week, International Market Centers (IMC) kicks off its monthly webinar series “Market Insights” with PANTONEVIEW 2021 – Color of the Year on Thursday, January 14. Participants in this hour-long session will receive 1 CEU credit.
“IMC is excited to partner with the PANTONE Color Institute to offer IMC’s market universe – designers, manufacturers, and retailers from the gift, home and apparel industries – with an inside look at trending color choices,” says IMC Chief Customer and Marketing Officer Dorothy Belshaw. “This session will provide participants with inspiration and relevant trend information now and throughout 2021.”
PANTONEVIEW 2021 – Color of the Year will be presented by Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the PANTONE Color Institute, at 4 p.m. (EST)/1 p.m. (PST) on January 14. Pressman will highlight key color trends for 2021 and provides insight into the Color of the Year and how it relates to home furnishings, décor, gift, apparel, lifestyle and all aspects of living. Registration is available here.
The 2021 PANTONE Colors of the Year – PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating – are two independent colors that highlight how different elements come together to support one another. According to PANTONE, these two signify a union of strength and positivity and encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.
IMC’s “Market Insights” webinars present high-level conversations about issues that are currently impacting businesses and allows buyers and suppliers to prepare throughout the year. The series is presented as an extension of programming at IMC’s gift and home markets – Atlanta Market, IMC High Point Market and Las Vegas Market – and offers participants timely, exclusive, and actionable content throughout the year. Registration for the Market Insights webinars will be available on each market’s website in the weeks prior to each session.
