Final call for DAME Design Awards

Unique chance for METSTRADE exhibitors to profile new product

A large number of entries have already been submitted for the 2018 DAME Design Award and yet organisers RAI Amsterdam are making a final call to exhibitors at METSTADE 2018 to respond by 18 September. Previous editions showed that many exhibitors will use these final days to finalise their entry.

As the world’s largest marine design competition of its kind, the DAME award is keenly anticipated by the global industry, and the category and overall winners are sure to receive a great deal of media attention.

Now in its 28th year, the DAME Design Award will be presented as part of the traditional Breakfast Briefing opening ceremony for METSTRADE on Tuesday 13 November. In addition to hearing a keynote speech by Groupe Beneteau CEO Hervé Gastinel, the hundreds of guests will see which exhibitors have most impressed the DAME panel of naval architects, boat, interior & industrial designers, and consumer experts.

Entries can be made via a dedicated online portal and all registration fees are donated to two selected charities related to the industry – Wetwheels and the Blue Marine Foundation.

Last year’s winner of the DAME Award was Scanstrut for its RS Venture Connect Conversion Kit.
