Charities to benefit from DAME award proceeds
Certified marine-related public charities can now apply for the registration proceeds from the DAME Design Award at METSTRADE 2019.
The trade show’s committee will select a charity and the donation will be presented during the breakfast briefing on November 19, the official start of METSTRADE 2019.
“The DAME Award is the best possible platform to launch new products and bring them to the attention of the global marine industry and media,” said Irene Dros, maritime domain manager at show organiser RAI Amsterdam.
“Winners and nominees can count on significant media coverage and by supporting a charity with the registration proceeds, RAI Amsterdam ensures that the wider society benefits as well. The chosen charity also enjoys increased international recognition thanks to its association with the DAME and METSTRADE, which is a win-win situation for all concerned.”
The annual DAME Award recognises innovative product designs in the leisure marine industry. The average charity donation to date is €19,000.
The closing date is April 19, 2019. The exhibition committee will announce the successful recipient mid-May.
