PCIAW announces the UK’s biggest PCIAW Summit & Awards yet, with a further increased global reach and over 30 international speakers.  At the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, London Heathrow, the summit, exhibition, and networking events will take place on 18-19 October culminating in the prestigious awards ceremony.

The Summit, hosted by Charles Ross, Lecturer at the Royal College of Art, is an essential educational event for the professional clothing, workwear and textiles industry and is esteemed and unique in the UK for its international networking opportunities across the supply chain for fibres, textiles, uniforms, workwear, and personal protective equipment (PPE).

As the industry accepts the new normal, the PCIAW Summit and Awards 2022 will be the one-stop-shop for all the education and advice the textiles industry needs. Specialist data will extrapolate the state of the market for professional clothing, whilst key figures talk strategy on the reconfiguration of disrupted supply chains, and representatives of onshore, nearshore manufacturing partners pitch to be the next solution.

“PCIAW is the first member-led UK organisation to represent the global companies of the professional clothing industry,” said Yvette Ashby, Founder and CEO of PCIAW.

“We are unique in that we encompass the entire supply chain from buyers, suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors and take pride in being the association that connects international partners for collaboration and education. Tickets for both the summit and awards ceremony are already proving popular with our long-term members plus new organisations that are often introduced to the benefits by existing attendees.”

For the very first time, the PCIAW® Exhibition will take place alongside the global conference, showcasing 20 international specialists in design-led uniforms, functional workwear, and lifesaving PPE.  Both days feature a state-of-the-art fashion show highlighting the cutting-edge garments from the exhibiting stands.
