NEW YORK || October 1, 2018 || For the first time since its debut in 2015, Kingpins Transformers charged a fee to attend its upcoming events in Amsterdam (October 23, 2018) and New York (June 4, 2019). The introduction of a ticket price is to help cover the cost of producing Kingpins Transformers – a cost organizers have absorbed for more than three years.
Now, Saitex International has stepped in and purchased all the tickets for the upcoming Kingpins Transformers: Innovation summits in Amsterdam and New York - making the event free to attend once again.
“We believe in the value of Transformers with our entire soul and our attendees and speakers do as well,” said Kingpins Transformers founder, Andrew Olah. “We are thrilled that Saitex International, a leader in sustainable manufacturing practices, has decided to pay for our visitors tickets to the upcoming editions of Kingpins Transformers.”
For Saitex, the move signals its commitment to education and innovation in the denim industry. “Something as educational as Kingpins Transformers should not charge any fee," says Sanjeev Bahl, owner of Saitex. "Learning and educating is a gift for anyone, with or without a budget."
Kingpins Transformers was created to spotlight companies like Saitex that lead the way in creating, implementing and sharing the changes that need to happen in the jeans industry to make it more sustainable.
Thanks to Saitex’s generosity, attendees of Kingpins Transformers can now learn more about the latest innovations in the denim supply chain free of charge.
For Kingpins Transformers attendees in New York, please note that the original date in November 2018 has been pushed back to June 4, 2019 to coincide with Kingpins New York and New York Denim Days.
Transformers guests who have already purchased a ticket, will be reimbursed for the cost of their tickets.
