The PCIAW® Uniform Buyers’ Network has been developed by the buyers, for the buyers and run by the buyers.
The Network will be holding a series of networking events throughout the year.
PCIAW® have invited over 200 buyers across the sector to take part and help to grow this unique and innovative group. We will be holding four events throughout the year with the buyers through webinars and seminars. The results of these networking events will be published in the PCIAW®VOICE magazine, on the website and will be shared to the industry as a whole, along with the exclusive information offered at each event.
These events will cover all aspects of the entire professional clothing industry, including workwear, corporatewear, PPE, footwear and accessories.
This will be a closed shop gathering, in which only buyers will be invited to take part and debate on issues such as legislation, tenders, sustainability, costing, sizing and how Brexit will affect our industry and much more.
Each buyer will be given a unique password to log on to the PCIAW® Uniform Buyers’ Network. Our buyers, business managers and procurement managers are the heart and soul of our industry and the PCIAW® strives to create as many business opportunities as possible to provide a safe environment for education and networking. As well as the forums and webinars that will be taking place throughout the year, the PCIAW® Summit 2020 will also be holding ‘break out’ rooms so buyers can feel free to interact with suppliers.
New buyers are coming into our industry every day facing the problems of the tender process and many will not understand its complexities.
As part of our drive to give back to the buyers, we are also offering every buyer who uploads their tender to www.pciaw.org a free copy of the first ever, beautifully illustrated, 104-page Buyers’ Guide, written in collaboration with Charles Conway. Charles has had over thirty years’ experience working with some of the most experienced buyers within our industry. The Buyers’ Guide is designed to offer easy-to-use, practical solutions to difficulties in the tender process for both buyers and suppliers.
