Final call for DAME Design Award


Unique chance for METSTRADE exhibitors to profile new product

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.

Now in its 27th year, the DAME Design Award will be presented as part of the traditional Breakfast Briefing opening ceremony for METSTRADE on Tuesday 14 November. 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. Last year’s winner of the DAME Award was Torqeedo GmbH for its Cruise FP models.

About the DAME

The DAME Design Award was initiated in 1991 to promote design across all disciplines and recognise the best-designed products at the METSTRADE Show. It is judged in seven key product categories spanning the many interests of METSTRADE exhibitors and visitors. The 27th edition of the competition will continue in the tradition of providing a globally recognised platform to highlight the importance of design for all marine products, from function to aesthetics and from packaging to the end-product. The DAME Jury also considers the expected impact on the marine industry of entries, their suitability for intended purpose, the level of innovation, the cost effectiveness and environmental impact.
