Orrefors sponsors DN Galan
Before this year's DN Gala Orrefors a collaboration started with the organizers of the gala. The partnership means that the winner of each event also wins a piece of designed Swedish glass from Orrefors.
- As Orrefors is an internationally recognized brand, we find it natural to work with DN Galan where each winner will receive a vase designed by Erika Lagerbielke says Magnus Andersson, CEO of Orrefors Kosta Boda AB.
DN Galan also welcomes the collaboration,
- It feels fantastic for us at DN Galan to be joining forces with such a classic Swedish brand. Most of the winners are international, and it feels special to be able to provide them with high quality Swedish design as prizes. It brings additional value to the unique track meet that the DN Galan is, said Anders Tallgren, operations manager for the organizers Stadionklubbarna.
DN Galan is one of the fourteen meetings in the athletics premier race series, the IAAF Diamond League. The first DN Galan was organized in 1967 and since then the competition has been amongst the foremost in the world.
This year's DN Galan is to be held on August 21 at the Olympic Stadium.
