Cheers to 5 years in Amsterdam! And to our strongest show ever. We say it after every show and it has been true every single time.

Thanks to the strength of our exhibitors' offerings and the fact that you - our attendees - show up every season, Kingpins Amsterdam

has grown each edition. So, thanks. We couldn't have done it without you.

A special thank-you to our sponsors - INVISTA and e3 Cotton.


Some highlights:

We added a show-in-show just for some of the most innovative and transformative companies in the denim supply chain today. It is in the aptly-named Transformatorhuis.

Kingpins Trend was back, stronger and more inspiring. You can buy it here and see a quick rundown of the season's trends here.

Transformers: Transparency – Kingpins Transformers tackled the issue of Transparency on April 17 in Amsterdam. Thanks to a fantastic panel of speakers and experts who made excellent presentations, more of our denim industry colleagues have learned about Transparency and are better equipped to affect change within their own companies. We will be staging the Transparency summit again in June in New York.
