Kingpins show organisers will debut Kingpins24, a 2-day online denim conference to bring global denim industry together. Kingpins24 will feature live stream of exhibitor content as well as panels, interviews, casual conversations plus on-demand content from Kingpins’ industry partners & friends. It will go live on April 22 and wrap up at midnight of April 23.

The denim industry, like all international business, has been heavily disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. But the denim community still needs to connect to share ideas, information and inspiration for the Fall/Winter 2021 season.

“We, as a whole, are resilient, resourceful and optimistic,” said Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Show. “When one door closes another opens. We believe Kingpins24 can give our global industry a chance to connect and share information. We have no other desire but to be a conduit for the denim world during these difficult times, where most of us, including me, are at home far away from our normal world.”

Olah will act as the host of Kingpins24 and will enlist a cast of industry players to help him.

Kingpins24 will not take the place of a Kingpins trade show. Instead, Kingpins organisers will distill the content, energy and point of view that make Kingpins shows unique and bring that same mind frame and approach to an online event. The goal is for attendees to have an understanding of the denim supply chain’s offerings for the F/W 2021 season and much, much more.

The Kingpins show is an invitation-only, boutique denim sourcing show featuring a highly-edited selection of vendors that include denim and sportswear fabric mills from the US, Japan, China, India, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Pakistan, Thailand, Spain and Mexico; wash houses; full package manufacturers; trim providers; and makers of technology, wash chemicals and business solutions. Kingpins, which launched in 2004, produces biannual shows in New York and Amsterdam, as well as annual shows in Hong Kong and China.
