A significant number of entries have already been submitted for the 2017 DAME Design Award and organiser RAI Amsterdam is now making a final call to exhibitors at METSTRADE 2017 to respond by 19 September. 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.

In addition to hearing a keynote speech by Brunswick Corporation CEO Mark D. Schwabero, 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 by the RAI to a charity.
