KINGPINS
Kingpins started out as a tiny denim supply chain show for folks tired of the mad scramble and soul-deadening crush of handshakes and «who are you’s?» and badge-checking.The idea was: keep the exhibitor list tight, invite only the best brands, serve tasty food, treat everyone like family and create an atmosphere that’s conducive for networking and relationship-building. It worked out pretty well.
They are still small, but they’ve gone global. You can now find Kingpins shows in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Amsterdam. Basically, if it’s denim or can be worn with denim – They’ve got it.
