Applications Extended for PCIAW® Awards

Applications for the PCIAW® Awards have been extended to the 14th of September by popular demand. Applications are open to any company attending the awards evening, and information about how to apply is available on the PCIAW® Awards page.

The industry-leading PCIAW® Awards is dedicated to the professional clothing supply chain for uniforms, workwear, and personal protective equipment (PPE). The awards ceremony will be hosted at 6pm on 9th November 2023, located at the iconic and award-winning venue – Alfandega Congress Centre, Porto – on the bank of the Douro River.

Sponsored by Carrington Textiles, the PCIAW® Awards champions innovation and celebrates success, creating a unique networking opportunity for the global professional clothing industry.

With 28 opportunities to win, the PCIAW® Awards recognise remarkable achievements across the global supply chain for suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors.

While there are many opportunities to congratulate companies at the top of the professional clothing industry, the PCIAW® Awards also recognises the work innovators are doing to bring circularity into professional clothing through sustainability awards, as well as individuals’ remarkable contributions through the Lifetime Achievement and Industry Newcomer awards.
