Guangzhou and Hangzhou will host Kingpins China City Tour on September 5 and 7. But this time the denim trade show will open its doors to both professionals and consumers with Kingpins Shop in Hangzhou on September 7 and 8.
Kingpins Shop is a two-day, consumer-focused denim festival that aims to create a unique shopping event uniting denim lovers with denim insiders with everything from denim fibers and fabrics to jeans and indigo accessories. Kingpins Hangzhou will focus on the supply-chain side of the denim industry.
Kingpins China City Tour focuses on denim and the denim supply chain (not just mills) as well as its specific mix of exhibitors–which range from key and innovative Chinese resources to prestigious international offerings not available at any other trade show in China.
The exhibitor roster and show floor offerings are identical between Guangzhou and Hangzhou. The organizers had included both Zhengzhou and Shishi in previous Kingpins China City Tours but narrowed their focus to Guangzhou and Hangzhou feeling these two cities merited a deeper focus and exploration as they cater to a majority of the exhibitors' target clients.
There are no plans to add any other cities to the tour in 2019. The event will focus on Guangzhou and Hangzhou for the foreseeable future.
