Swarovski to Sponsor 24th Annual ARTS AwardsDecember 19, 2012
Swarovski Elements will sponsor the 24th annual ARTS Awards gala slated to be held Jan. 19 during the Dallas International Lighting and Accessories Market.
This will be the second consecutive year Swarovski has supported the event by contributing crystalline interior decorations to make the ballroom sparkle during the ceremony.
The ARTS awards program is dedicated to excellence and achievement in manufacturing, retail, design, and sales representation, across the home decorative accessories segment.
The ARTS Awards will culminate in a black-tie gala attended by industry leaders and will be held in the ballroom of the Dallas Hilton Anatole Hotel. Cream-colored panels embossed with the ARTS Awards logo in copper crystals will decorate the venue, and the stage will feature two custom-made, crystal-embellished podiums. The Swarovski Crystal Curtains, made with 287 individual strands, will provide a backdrop. Guests will find tabletop favors at place settings of custom-designed, crystalline wine glass stem charms as mementos of the evening.
"Identifying and supporting talent has long been a cornerstone of Swarovski Elements' philosophy, along with creative collaborations with stellar talents, both established and new," Reinhard Mackinger, executive vice president, Elements business for Swarovski North America. "As such, the ARTS Awards represent an important event in which Swarovski Elements is delighted to play a supporting role."
