Printing Industries of America 
seeks speakers for its 2018 Color Conference in January

The Printing Industries of America (PIA) is currently seeking speakers for its 2018 Color Conference to be held January 13–16, 2018 at the Hyatt Mission Bay in San Diego, California. Programming for the event focuses on colour management for graphic communications and brand integrity. Potential speakers are invited to propose topics for either keynote sessions for the general audience, or extremely detailed colour-centric topics for breakout sessions. The primary audience for this event includes brand managers and designers, colour management practitioners and print production professionals. The growing emphasis on inkjet printing and packaging will be reflected in the 2018 program.

The deadline for proposals is Thursday, June 1, 2017. The Color Management Advisory Committee will review each application on the basis of expertise, overall quality, interest to the audience, relevance to the conference, value of the contribution, and commitment to an in-person presentation at the conference.
