Klas Olofsson, president of Sandrew-Metronome, will be honored as Cinema Expo’s 1998 exhibitor of the year.
Cinema Expo has tapped Olofsson for this award because his company has consistently “given the audience the best presentation and environment to view films,” said Cinema Expo’s co-managing director Jimmy Sunshine.
“Sandrew has doubled their market share under his (Olofsson’s) astute leadership,” Sunshine added.
After serving as head of the Swedish Film Institute for seven years, Olofsson joined Sandrew Film (now Sandrew-Metronome AB) as managing director in 1989.
The award will be presented in Amsterdam during the annual convention in late June.
