Kingpins24, the first-ever online event from the producers of the Kingpins Show, will debut on April 22nd and 23rd with a live stream program supported by the Conscious Fashion Campaign.
Lenzing, The LYCRA Company, Cone Denim, Saitex, Calik Denim, Prosperity Textile, Candiani Denim and Vidalia Mills and more than 50 other companies have submitted a wide variety of content to be shown on the Kingpins24 platform, including videos, interviews and presentations. Rivet, an industry trade publication, has joined Kingpins24 as the media partner. In total, Kingpins24 will offer more than 135 presentations from exhibitors as well as more than 35 panels, interviews and seminars. A selection of these items will be streamed during the two-day live stream that will span the event.
The Conscious Fashion Campaign seeks to inspire worldwide prominent fashion industry conveners to implement responsible marketing, operations and logistics that are mindful of social, economic and environmental impact. To achieve the 2030 agenda the Conscious Fashion Campaign urges industry event leaders to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into their business models, incorporate circular production solutions, highlight key innovations and facilitate knowledge share.
“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, 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.
