METS Trade Dame Awards

Sept 18, 2016

Final call for entries

METSTRADE Show organiser RAI Amsterdam calls on exhibitors to submit their most innovative designs for the DAME (Design Award METSTRADE) by 20 September 2016. All entries for the world’s most prestigious design competition for new marine equipment and accessories will be judged by an independent international jury of experts. The winners will be announced during the METSTRADE Breakfast Briefing on the opening day of the METSTRADE Show 2016, which takes place from 15 to 17 November in the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.

The importance of DAME in the global marine industry is unrivalled. The awards are arranged every year as part of the METSTRADE Show, the world’s largest marine equipment event and only truly international B2B exhibition for the leisure marine industry. As the most significant competition of its kind for new equipment and accessories, DAME set the pace for new concepts and designs in the worldwide industry over the past 26 years. This means that the category nominees receive a great deal of exposure while the eventual DAME winner becomes highly renowned within its field.
