Kingpins has decided not to hold its originally planned October tradeshow in Amsterdam. Though the Netherlands government is allowing events with restrictions, and Kingpins had a large venue, the organization decided not to move forward this year with COVID-19 still continuing to spread across the world. Kingpins24 has held two virtual events.

It is also working with Material Exchange to develop other online solutions to keep the denim business moving forward.

"COVID-19 is not a local problem to resolve. It’s global. And it’s not going away, at least not yet, regardless of the laws," said Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Show and Kingpins24, in a statement.

Olah said that Kingpins couldn't have held a show drawing in exhibitors and much of Europe and realistically expect everyone to come. He found the idea of staying in hotels and public places and wanting to fly not practical given the current state of the world, according to European media reports.
