Online registration for METSTRADE 2016 is free of charge until 7 November.
From 8 November online registration costs € 70.00. Onsite registration at the exhibition costs € 200.00.
Each year the registration fee for DAME is donated to charity. This year the proceeds for entering the DAME Award will go to the AMREF project called ‘A healthy future for girls in Kilindi’. This project is set up to improve the health of girls and young women by introducing an alternative rite of passage for female genital mutilation in a remote area in Tanzania as well as increasing access to safe drinking water, good sanitation and hygiene.
Certified marine-related public charities are invited to apply for the registration proceeds from the Design Award METSTRADE (DAME) competition.
The amount of the donation is announced and presented during the Breakfast Briefing on the official opening day of the METSTRADE Show. To date DAME has raised approximately € 18,000 a year for worthy causes, with the actual amount of the donation depending on the number of entries registered.
DAME Charities - last few years
* As agreed by the Exhibition Committee, AMREF Flying Doctors – the international charity supported by Amsterdam RAI - will receive the DAME donation every other year, as from 2012.
There is no better platform to launch a new product and bring it to the attention of the entire marine industry and media than the DAME Award,” comments Irene Dros, Maritime Domain Manager at RAI Amsterdam. “The winners and the nominees gain priceless publicity and, by supporting a charity with the registration proceeds, RAI Amsterdam ensures that the wider society benefits too. In addition to the funds raised, we see that the chosen charity enjoys greater international recognition thanks to its association with the DAME. This is a win-win sutiation for all concerned.
