DALLAS–Swarovski Elements will sponsor the 23rd annual ARTS Awards gala, which will be held Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012, during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market at the Dallas Market Center.
“Swarovski Elements is the ideal partner for the ARTS Awards gala and we are honored to work with them on this special evening,” said Cindy Morris, chief operating officer, Dallas Market Center. “Their beautiful crystal work will add a new level of elegance to the event. We thank them for their collaboration and commitment to the industry.”
For the gala, Swarovski Elements has created cream-colored panels embossed with the ARTS Awards logo in copper crystals that will define the cocktail space at the Hilton Anatole, the new location for the awards. Upon entering the ballroom for the dinner and ceremony portion of the ARTS Awards, guests will be greeted by a glittering, 48-foot-wide and 14-foot-tall curtain lining the stage, incorporating more than 280 individual crystal strands, and two custom-made, crystal embellished podiums. Dining tables will be adorned with napkin rings made of Swarovski Elements Crystal Rocks.
“Swarovski Elements is pleased to participate as a sponsor of the ARTS Awards gala,” said Reinhard Mackinger, executive vice president, Elements Business, Swarovski North America. “An event such as this, which is dedicated to recognizing the very best achievements in the home decorative accessories industry, is a perfect match for Swarovski Elements. We are proud to contribute assorted decoration materials to this very important event.”
Swarovski, along with its sister company Schonbek, opened a new showroom at the Dallas Market Center’s Trade Mart this past summer.
