And yet another trade show cancellation: Ongoing travel restrictions around the globe have led the organizers of denim trade show Kingpins to cancel its 2020 China City Tour show in Guangzhou and Hangzhou, originally slated for 2 & 4 September.
“While some places in the world have begun to open and many of our mills and partners in China are slowly returning to a sense of normalcy, for many of our international exhibitors, travel is not an option right now,” says Vivian Wang, Kingpins’ managing director and head of global sales.
Other than for the cancelled Kingpins Amsterdam and New York editions earlier this year there is no Kingpins24 digital event planned for the Chinese market at this time.
“The Chinese market is very interesting to Kingpins and the global denim market, but we don’t have the technology or capacity to produce a digital event for China just yet,” Wang said. “It is something we are exploring – not just for China, but for the whole world – and we hope to be able to share some good news in that respect soon.”
