April 17, 2020 | NEW YORK | When it debuts on April 22/23, Kingpins24 will boast an exhibitor list and educational / inspirational line-up that rivals any in-person denim event.

“The response from the industry has been overwhelming – nearly every company we have invited to join us has not only agreed but gone above-and-beyond to get creative and develop content for us that embraces the spirit and circumstances of Kingpins24,” said Andrew Olah, founder of Kingpins Show. “The creativity, enthusiasm and support gives me high hopes for the success of this new concept – and it tells me that we’re not alone in our belief that the denim industry can and will evolve to meet the new challenges we are facing.”
Kingpins24 will be a two-part event. Anchored by the daily live stream, Kingpins24 will also feature a robust offering of on-demand content, featuring a mix of presentations, videos and Kingpins24-exclusive content from Denim Dudes, United Nations Office for Partnerships, Conscious Fashion Campaign, NPD Group, Vintage Showroom, Ravensbourne University, Simply Suzette, PVH, Kingpins MSP x Piero Turk, HTNK Fashion Recruitment + Consultancy, Mohsin Sajid and many more. All pre-recorded content that will be on the live-stream will also be watchable on-demand, so that attendees in all time zones will be able to enjoy key interviews, presentations and seminars on their own schedule.
