Kingpins Show, a boutique denim sourcing show, has announced that the 2020 edition of Kingpins Hong Kong has been cancelled due to health concerns and travel restrictions linked to the coronavirus epidemic in China. The event was originally scheduled for May 13-14, 2020, the next edition of Kingpins Hong Kong will now take place in May 2021.
 
"We are very concerned about the situation in China and understand that many of our exhibitors and attendees are dealing with extreme difficulties and uncertainty due to efforts to contain the spread of the virus," Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Show, said in a press release. "In light of these issues and the expectation that the disruption will continue for some time, we felt it best to cancel our Hong Kong event. The health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees is our primary concern. We will be back in 2021."
 
"The Asian denim market remains central to the global denim industry and we look forward to bringing this international community together in September," Vivian Wang, managing director of Kingpins, said in the release.
