METSTRADE 35th anniversary
Amsterdam | 15 - 17 November 2023



DAME R&D Excellence in Adversity Award 2020

For the first time since its inception, the current situation has forced us to postpone the 30th edition of DAME until 2021.

This year during METSTRADE Connect we will be awarding a special one-off DAME award: DAME R&D Excellence in Adversity Award 2020. This award will celebrate products new to market and R&D projects between 1 January and 28 October 2020. We are no longer accepting submissions. The Jury will use analytical assessment as well as an emotional response to find the winner and special mentions.


Judging Panel DAME Design Award

The DAME Jury is drawn from a mix of experts in their field, from the marine and broader industries. It typically includes those with naval architecture, boat design, interior design, user application and marine market experience and skills. The jury is supported by a non-voting secretary. The members of the Jury carefully assess entries for overall design, build quality, functionality, and use of materials. Other factors taken into account are originality, ergonomics, and price/quality ratio.
