The DAME Awards have donated an average of $21,000 to charities.

Marine-related public charities can apply for the registration proceeds from the DAME Design Awards at Metstrade 2019. The show’s exhibition committee will select charities from the entries submitted before April 19 and the donation will be presented during the annual breakfast briefing on November 19, the opening of the 2019 Metstrade recreational marine accessories show in Amsterdam.

For many years, Metstrade producer RAI Amsterdam has donated the registration fees for the awards to a charity. The average amount of the donations to date has been more than $21,000 (€19,000). The 2019 amount will depend on the number of entry fees paid. The committee will announce recipient in May.

“The DAME ward is the best possible platform to launch new products and bring them to the attention of the global marine industry and media,” Irene Dros, maritime domain manager at RAI Amsterdam, said in a statement. “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.”
