PCIAW® Summit & Awards 18-20 Nov 2024: Save the Date

The Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW®) is proud to announce that the internationally acclaimed PCIAW® Summit & Awards will be held at The Vox in Birmingham, UK, this 18th – 20th November 2024. 

Following the association’s fantastic 2023 Summit & Awards held in Portugal, PCIAW® is bringing its event back to the UK in 2024, hosting over 500 delegates in the historic manufacturing hub of Birmingham. Consisting of factory tours, two days of educational talks and workshops, and the globally esteemed industry awards evening, the PCIAW® Summit & Awards is the premier event for anyone who works in the uniform, workwear, or PPE industry. 

2023 PCIAW® Factory Tours & Summit

In addition to insightful keynotes and educational sessions throughout the event, the 2024 PCIAW® Summit & Awards will feature the return of 2023’s breakout success, the PCIAW® Factory Tours. Delegates of the Summit will have the opportunity to explore some of Britain’s best textile and garment manufacturers, unlocking the expertise of the British textile heritage. Interactive workshops and coffee breaks will also provide plenty of networking opportunities with peers and partners at the event, bringing the key decision-makers in professional clothing together in one room. 

The annual event also includes the PCIAW® Industry Awards, recognising excellence and innovation across various segments of the professional clothing industry, from garment design to material innovation and digitalisation. If winning a globally esteemed PCIAW® trophy wasn’t enough, the awards evening also includes a champagne reception and professional clothing fashion, providing delegates with a full night of entertainment. 

2023 PCIAW® Awards

The Vox has excellent transport links no matter where delegates travel from, situated next to Birmingham International Train Station and Birmingham International Airport, in addition to being reachable by 70% of the UK population by car in under 3 hours. The venue is located within the Resorts World plaza, a modern cornucopia of shopping and entertainment with restaurants, bars and a casino to keep anyone entertained well into the night. Genting Hotel and Crowne Plaza Hotel are a stone’s throw from the Vox too, so delegates won’t have far to walk before they can get stuck into the action at the PCIAW® Summit & Awards. 

The PCIAW® is keen to share vital information and celebrate with industry representatives in Birmingham this November, and the association encourages delegates to book their tickets and hotels early while availability lasts. The PCIAW® Summit & Awards is set to be a spectacular showcase of the best the professional clothing industry has to offer, so save the dates and avoid missing out on the event of the year.
