The Kingpins Show will be shifting the dates of their New York edition from a January/July schedule to a November/May schedule.

The change will become effective after the 21-22 July 2015 show. The new dates of the show will be 3-4 November 2015 for the spring/summer 2017 season and 11-12 May 2016 for the fall/winter 2017 season.

“We have been hearing from our attendees in New York for some time that our dates have been too late to best serve their buying needs,” commented Andrew Olah, founder of the Kingpins Show. “As the seminal denim-only sourcing event, our focus has always been to meet the needs of the jeans market – whatever they may be. We feel the need to be first in industry timing and in this case, we are evolving as the denim industry evolves.”

The date change for Kingpins New York will be long-term and will be supported by a move to a larger venue. The November 3-4, 2015 and May 11-12, 2016 Kingpins New York shows will take place at Pier 36 - Basketball City. “We want to bring to New York some of what we’ve been able to create at our Kingpins Amsterdam show, where we have had the room to not only showcase best-of denim mills and resources but also to partner with fantastic vintage dealers, artisans and brands to more fully represent the denim industry and create a greater sense of community,” Olah said.

The date change will not affect Kingpins Shows in Amsterdam and Hong Kong. The Amsterdam edition will continue to take place in April 2016 and October 2016 and the Hong Kong edition in March 2016 and August 2016.
