Davidoff Announces Major Sponsorship With Art Basel

Davidoff Group

The Oettinger Davidoff Group, headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, is pleased to announce its major sponsorship with Art Basel, which stages the most prestigious international modern and contemporary art shows. The significant relationship elevates Davidoff into the top tier of Art Basel sponsors. Present sponsors include leading and renowned brands, such as UBS, AxaArt and Netjets.

Davidoff’s products are deeply connected to the handcraft traditions involved in the rolling and blending of fine cigars as well as the art of marquetry (the inlaid wood designs frequently found on cigar humidors). This partnership with Art Basel marks a new chapter for the company, as it shifts its sponsorship in the direction of contemporary art.

Later this year, Davidoff will announce a new international initiative linking it more closely to the world of contemporary artists and collectors. The planned initiatives will extend Davidoff’s commitment to visual art well beyond its art-fair sponsorship.

The Davidoff Flagship Store in Geneva celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011.

With almost 4,000 employees around the world, the CHF 1.3 billion Oettinger Davidoff Group traces its roots back to 1875 and remains family owned to this day. The Group operates two distinctly different businesses: one focused on consumer goods distribution in the Swiss market, and one dedicated to its core business, the producing, marketing, and retailing of premium branded cigars, tobacco products, and accessories. The premium-branded cigar business includes Davidoff, Camacho, Zino Platinum, AVO, Cusano, Griffin’s, Private Stock, Zino, and Winston Churchill Cigars.
