Kingpins is looking to kick off the physical shows with China in September, Amsterdam in October and New York City in late fall of 2021.

Denim trade show Kingpins is set to return in its physical form in autumn, CEO and founder Andrew Olah confirms, but they will operate alongside online events which organisers have been running since the pandemic began last year.

Kingpins is looking to kick off the physical shows with China in September, Amsterdam in October and New York City in late fall of 2021.

Online shows will continue in the interim, with one planned for the US in February and another in April for Europe.

"Our online shows should not end once physical shows return. We love the idea of digital information and the challenge to find new and inspiring individuals to share their stories or their products or inventions," says Olah.

In October, Kingpins rolled out its new online sourcing platform that digitises denim collections from mills around the globe, Kingpins Exchange.

"We will also work diligently at improving and widening our Kingpins Exchange platform," said Olah. "We are pleased it will be available in Mandarin, Spanish and Portuguese in the new year and there will be many enhancements that will make online fabric viewing a more functional tool for sourcing."
