professional clothing showThis year’s Professional Clothing Show will take place at the NEC in Birmingham, on 1-2 April 2014.

The event is dedicated to the manufacture and supply of professional clothing, from cutting edge corporate wear to durable work wear and life-saving PPE (personal protective equipment).

Visitors to the Professional Clothing Show can also discover hundreds of new lines, and for those new to the industry, can learn more about the “how to buy” process.

"It's wonderful to be returning to the NEC,” said the Professional Clothing Show's Managing Director Yvette Ashby. “The facilities are world class and feedback from visitors and exhibitors at our previous events indicates that 2014 is going to be the best event yet, attracting even more visitors and exhibitors from the UK and overseas."

The event provides an opportunity to network with peers and colleagues, and attend the Professional Clothing Awards which celebrate achievement in the work wear, corporate wear and PPE industry.

The awards will be hosted by Ruth Morris, uniform manager for the Rugby World Cup 2015 and manager of the uniform programme for the hugely successful 2012 London Olympics.

The Professional Clothing Show will also host ‘Pro Show Live’, a live fashion show during which the London 2012 Game Makers’ uniforms will be modelled live on the catwalk, allowing visitors a close-up view of the now famous Olympic outfits.

David Gallagher, the NEC’s New Business Development Manager, added: “This is a really exciting win for the NEC. We have an enviable track record of helping our customers grow their events here and a flagship event such as the Professional Clothing Show belongs at the NEC. We look forward to working together.”
