For the first time ever, Kingpins ,a renowned denim trade show is holding an online event Kingpins24 in lieu of its popular Amsterdam show in April.
“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”, avers Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Show. We, as a whole, are resilient, resourceful and optimistic, he added.
The online event will provide a live stream of panels, interviews, casual conversations and on-demand content to educate the industry in an interactive way. Kingpins24 will go live at 9 a.m. CET (Central European Time) on April 22 and end by midnight on April 23.
The goal, however is not to take the place of the trademark Kingpins show. Instead, it will provide helpful content surrounding the denim supply chain’s offerings for the upcoming seasons with the same energy that attendees are used to.
The event will also include exhibitor content. Presentations will focus on sustainability and corporate social responsibility updates to ensure partners are still able to connect with attendees despite being situated around the globe.
