In Partnership With
The Networking Event of the Year
Get involved, there are plenty of opportunities to support the PCA Awards 2018
“All media coverage for garments seems to be on what we wear when we are not at work, but The Professional Clothing Awards makes that all different. Along with all partner organisations involved and the engaged folks of the
industry, The Professional Clothing Awards brings a completely new approach to the scenario. In addition, as a Global Networking platform, PCA has succeeded to establish recognition and strong attention to the entire bandwidth of professional clothes and that’s one reason why I am very pleased to support and experience this unique event.”
Yvonne Heinen-Foudeh, Director of Marketing & Communications EMEA of GERBER
“Portugal and the UK have the longest friendship throughout history dating back to 1386 when The Treaty of Windsor was signed and it is something we are keen to continue. We recognise the prestigious Professional Clothing Awards as a well-established event and are honoured to be part of it. With this, we’re willing to make Portugal and England’s alliance even stronger and we believe that Brexit isn’t going to affect this old and deeply historical relation.”
César Araújo, President of ANIVEC and CEO of Calvelex
"We have been working with director-e for the last 10 years, it is recognised as the industry’s bible as it is the only magazine that covers all sectors. director-e helps us promote our message and the PCA Awards are a great opportunity for us to thank our key customers and industry colleagues. We continue to support the PCA as we truly believe this event is the highlight in our industry's calendar."
