PCIAW® Summit & Awards connects leading textiles professionals for a one-of-a-kind education and networking event.

The Professional Clothing Industry Association Worldwide (PCIAW®) is excited to announce the 2022 PCIAW® Summit & Awards event on 11-12 October, located at the Park Plaza London Riverbank hotel, overlooking the iconic Westminster Abbey.

The 2022 PCIAW® Summit & Awards is sponsored by Meryl Fabrics® and is dedicated to strengthening the influence of the international professional clothing industry, whilst bringing together leading figures from across the supply chain for a one-of-a-kind education and networking event.

For the very first time, the free to access PCIAW® Exhibition will take place alongside the global conference, showcasing international experts in design-led uniforms, functional workwear, and lifesaving PPE with an extravagant fashion show highlighting the inventive garments from the exhibiting stands.


The PCIAW® Summit will be hosted by Charles Ross, Lecturer for the Royal College of Art. Across the two days, Charles will focus on shared industry challenges and opportunities in times of disrupted supply chains, as experts in their fields share exclusive insights on the new trajectory of sustainable tendering, supply chain diversification and nearshoring manufacturing, plus the impact of hyperinflation on the professional clothing industry.
