The 2021 PCIAW® Summit & Networking event is a must-attend, educational conference for the professional clothing industry to learn about the revolutionary innovations in textiles and recycling, which are set to radically transform the supply chain and facilitate a sustainable, closed loop, circular economy, from fibre to garment.
The PCIAW® Summit, ‘Sustainability: Are You Ready?’, will help guide the professional clothing industry towards the first steps of its sustainability journey and inspire the next strides for those who have already started.
This year’s headline sponsor is Milliken & Company, and the PCIAW® would also like to recognise the President of ANIVEC, César Araújo and the Portuguese delegation for also sponsoring the PCIAW® Summit, Networking & Awards event. Thank you to International Brands Group, PDC UK, Pulsar and Clubclass for your valued support.
Expanding upon the extensive research which created the first of its kind report, ‘Circular Textiles for a Sustainable Future’, the PCIAW® Summit will feature over 20 international speakers to present on an array of potential solutions to help businesses in the professional clothing sector to design circular.
Aligning with the UK Presidency of COP26, the PCIAW® Summit will educate on how to create a circular business model for the professional clothing industry, by reporting on key innovations, including biodegradable fibre solutions; sustainable fabric production, circular garment design, recycling infrastructures, pioneering laundry technologies, plus supply chain transparency and more.

There is no time to waste and now is the time to act. If not for environmental reasons, then change is imperative for commercial reasons, because one day, your biggest customer will ask, what is your end-of-life policy?
